Heerenveen Prediction – Can Heerenveen maintain home form?

A 2-1 defeat away from home at PSV last weekend ended Heerenveen’s unbeaten run of 7 matches in the Dutch top flight, but they return to home turf at their Abe Lenstra Stadion in Friday night’s clash with Vitesse no doubt looking to maintain their unbeaten start.

Heerenveen currently sit in 7th place and occupy the last Europa League play-off spot but there’s still a long way to go this term, but all 3 points against Vitesse in this clash would see the hosts leapfrog their visitors into 4th place.

The hosts recorded 4 wins during this recent 7-match spell without defeat and included victories against VV Venlo, PEC Zwolle, AZ Alkmaar and Sparta Rotterdam, while in their own backyard, they’re still yet to taste defeat with a solid (if draw-centric) record of 2-5-0 7/5.

Heerenveen have been a hard nut to crack so far on home soil this season but their consistency at home isn’t just this term – the hosts have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 15 matches in the Eredvisie and they’ve lost just 1 of their previous 6 meetings at home against Vitesse.

Vitesse Prediction – Can Vitesse close gap on PSV?

If recent results are anything to go by, then Vitesse look to have their work cut out if they’re to get a result at Heerenveen and also close the gap on 3rd placed PSV who are 4 points ahead of the visitors, especially as Vitesse have lost their last 4 matches on the trot in the Eredivisie.

Although they still occupy 4th place on the Dutch top flight ladder, Vitesse have lost valuable ground on the top three clubs due to a 4-match losing streak which has resulted in defeats to Den Haag, Emmen, Groningen and Sparta Rotterdam.

With all due respect, the most worrying aspect about these defeats were that they were inflicted upon them by teams sitting in mid-to-lower half positions of the Eredivisie and they face another tough assignment when they come up against a solid Heerenveen outfit this Friday night.

Vitesse’s task is made that much harder as they’ve lost their last two away matches on the trot and indeed, have lost 3 of their last 5 matches on their travels so confidence isn’t likely to be bubbling over ahead of this encounter.


Key-Facts – Heerenveen vs Vitesse

  • Heerenveen have lost just 1 of their 15 matches at home in the Eredivisie
  • Vitesse have lost their last 4 matches on the trot overall in the Eredivisie
  • Heerenveen have lost just 1 of their last 6 meetings at home against Vitesse


Betting Tips Verdict

Heerenveen have been hard to beat at home in the Eredivisie for some time and an out of sorts Vitesse outfit could struggle here.
