Heerenveen vs ADO Den Haag
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Tuesday, 17 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Abe Lenstra Stadion (Heerenveen).
Heerenveen’s form has seen quite a few stumbling blocks throughout the season, but they are still in position to make it to the Europa League playoffs in the remaining three rounds of the competition. They are about to host ADO Den Haag, with whom they are locked on points, on Tuesday evening in a six-pointer at Abe-Lenstra.
The winning side gets to break into the top seven in the league ladder and both Heerenveen and Den Haag will come into the game high on confidence after weekend’s wins. The hosts took as many as seven points from last three league outings conceding just once in last two (pretty impressive for Dutch league standards).
Nonetheless, Jurgen Streppel’s men will have a tough job keeping things tight at the back here given Den Haag’s fine attacking form in the recent set of outings. The team led by Alfons Groenendijk notched five in last two games against Utrecht and Twente.

Heerenveen vs ADO Den Haag: Prediction
Reza Ghoochannejhad was the one who broke the deadlock in the weekend’s away fixture with VVV (0-2 win for Heerenveen). The Iranian striker thus took his league tally to eight and he will have a nice chance to add even more goals to it on Tuesday against the struggling defensive line of Den Haag’s.
The visitors shipped seven goals in last three league outings and as many as three in the previous away fixture at Utrecht. Den Haag struggled to get points on the board against the rock-bottomed Twente on Saturday. They eventually made it thanks to Bjorn Johnsen who has been in good touch lately. The Norwegian striker scored three goals in last two games and he is Haag’s top scorer with 15 to his name so far in the season.
Both teams have a string firepower on display in the final third and we could really witness goals when they clash each other on Tuesday.
