It's quite strange to see a team that has performed well at home this season struggle so much when visiting other teams. Sparta Rotterdam has fell all the way down to the middle of the table after their fifth away loss in a row. Sparta Rotterdam probably won't finish high enough this season to play in the play-offs, but the have a good manager now so there is more to hope for next season. At home Sparta Rotterdam is pretty much unbeatable, so a win over Telstar seems likely. As a bottom half team playing a top half team you need some luck. After being outplayed for more than an hour Telstar scored twice in short succession. When FC Oss wanted to fight back their goalkeeper got a red card, limiting their possibilities. Telstar has been doing decent recently, losing to strong or in-form teams, but getting some points against teams that are struggling. If they would have played at home Telstar would have a chance, but Sparta's home position is just to strong.
