Heerenveen is behind the host on the table but still has managed to stay unbeaten in the recent three fixtures in their schedule. Besides, the visitor will come in with the confidence of returning successfully after their last two visits to this venue.
It will be hard to assess a winner in the game, but AZ is the closest favorite with their squad strength in the league this season. The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash.
