Feyenoord vs Heerenveen
Date: Thursday, 4 April 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Feijenoord (Rotterdam).
Feyenoord continued to struggle on Sunday when they fell 3-2 away at Utrecht. It was their second straight 2-3 defeat which followed the one at home against the likes of Willem II before the international break. De club aan de Maas clearly lacks motivation after losing the battle for silverware in early stages of the season.
The hosts won just one of last seven league outings and they fell to fourth place as a consequence. Giovanni van Bronckhorst will rely on the home record on Thursday when his troops host Hereneveen in the last game of the mid-week Matchday in Rotterdam.
Feyenoord won 11 of 13 home outings in this term of Eredivise. Such fine record will, however, be on a serious test here against Pride of Friesland who are capable of beating any opposition in the league on their day.
Feyenoord vs Heerenveen: Head-to-head
Feyenoord can also hope to build on a superior head to head record in matches with Heerenveen.
De club aan de Maas won three and drew one of last four ties against Heerenveen.
We should definitely be in for a high-scoring thriller here as each of lst eight head to head affairs between these two likes saw goals scored at both ends.
This term’s clash produced as many as eight goals in a 3-5 victory for Feyenoord at Abe Lenstra Stadion.
Feyenoord vs Heerenveen: Prediction
The visitors have been playing hot and cold throughout the entire season, much like their counterparts. They were in good touch lately winning four of last five games, but a 0-3 home defeat to De Graafschap was kind of hard to explain.
Jan Olde Riekerink’s men finally managed to keep things tight at the back on Saturday when they celebrated a 1-0 victory over relegation strugglers Excelsior.
We can say there is no value in backing the home win at 1.33 odds based on everything written above. We will go for goals instead as H2H games between these two likes usually offer genuine goal fests.
