Heerenveen vs Sparta Rotterdam – For the majority of the last Eredivisie campaign, Heerenveen’s performance was about par for the course. They managed to maintain a respectable level of play throughout the year, which helped them finish in eighth place and qualify for the Eredivisie Conference League Play-offs.
They expect to have a lot more successful season this year. The previous season in the Eredivisie, Sparta Rotterdam had a poor showing. Due to their lacklustre performance, they are currently sitting at the bottom of the standings.
They were dangerously close to the bottom of the table, and ultimately avoided relegation by a single game’s margin. It appears that Sparta Rotterdam’s first league game of the season will be on Friday, August 31, when they travel to Abe Lenstra Stadion to take on Heerenveen.
