Date: Saturday, 30th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Abe Lenstra Stadion (Heerenveen).
Heerenveen has got a great opportunity to make a march towards their European dreams this weekend. They are pitted against a struggling relegation-battler, with a deficit of six points to overcome in the next eight match-days, in order to be counted amongst the playoff sides. They have been in good form in the recent match-days, especially at home.
Excelsior has posted a single point on the board from their last four league games and is hanging above the exit line by a point. With Graafschap slowly making some progress from below, the team is facing danger at this critical juncture of the season.
