Sparta Rotterdam will face Ajax in a match from the 1st round of the Eredivisie.
After 6 seasons in the second division, the second club from Rotterdam is in the elite of Dutch football. Sparta Rotterdam finished on 1st of the Eerste Divisie 2015/16. Sparta had won 24 of his 36 league games ahead of the VVV-Venlo 4 points and NAC Breda 12. Sparta have won just one of their last four warm-up matches, facing Wattens (1-0). They made 3 draws conceding 5 goals, 3 against Groningen and 2 against NAC Breda.
Ajax is already in competition mode with a moral winner. Ajax eliminated PAOK Salonika in the third preliminary round of the Champions League: 1-1 in the first leg at home and won the second leg 1-2 Greece on Wednesday night. Last season, Ajax play very good as away after they reached 12 wins, 4 draws and 1 defeat in 17 games. The best record after PSV!
Ajax and PSV should again engage remote battle for the title. And every point will count! Ajax so can not afford to pass up points against a promoted team and i expect that they will win.
