Sparta remains number 6 in the Eredivisie. National champion Ajax has only 1 point more, but will play an away match against Feyenoord on Sunday. Coach Steijn has made Sparta a successful team again. Since his appointment in April last year, only Feyenoord and PSV have won more often in the Eredivisie.
Sparta already led 2-0 in Leeuwarden after 18 minutes. Tobias Lauritsen scored with a long shot. Koki Saito scored the second goal. Sven Mijnans prepared both goals.
Sparta came to 3-0 in the 51st minute. Vito van Crooij converted a penalty after a foul by Mees Hoedemakers on Lauritsen. Sparta thus remained undefeated for the sixth league game in a row. SC Cambuur remains at the bottom of the Eredivisie, trailing the penultimate FC Volendam by 3 points.
