Den Haag vs Heerenveen
Date: Saturday, 9 March 2019
Kick-Off at 18:45 UK / 19:45 CET
Venue: Cars Jeans Stadion (Den Haag).
Heerenveen are flying high coming into Saturday’s tie with ADO Den Haag. The Super Frisians were one of the biggest disappointments of the first half of the season, but the head coach Jan Olde Riekerink found the winning formula at the start of the year.
The Super Frisians are a completely different team after the winter break. They go into this unbeaten in last five league affairs. Heerenveen won last two with an identical 4-2 scoreline showing a superb attacking form against Fortuna Sittard and Willem Ii.
The lack of meticulousness at the back is no longer such a massive handicap as the attacking line produces in a phenomenal fashion. The visitors bagged two or more goals in four of last five league matches. Sam Lammers and Michel Vlap combined the total of 25 goals so far in the season and they were both on the scoresheet in last weekend’s 4-2 victory over Willem Ii at Abe Lenstra Stadion.
Den Haag vs Heerenveen: Head-to-head
Heerenveen can back their hopes of maintaining such hot streak with a fine head to head record against The Hague.
The Super Frisians were always a tricky opposition for ADO Den Haag.
The visitors won four and drew one of past five meetings with The Hague.
Den Haag vs Heerenveen: Prediction
The hosts hold 12th position in the league ladder but they won’t come into this in the highest of spirits. Den Haag suffered a real disaster in the previous home tie when they allowed five goals in a demolishing defeat to Ajax.
They went on to play just a 1-1 draw away at penultimate-placed De Graafschap last Friday. Den Haag are a team which allows plenty of goals. They shipped 48 in 24 league games so far and we can’t see them holding the red-hot attacking line of Heerenveen’s here.
The away win is a must-take pick at 2.90, while you can also try with the Over 3.5 goals FT bet at sky-high 2.50.
