SC Heerenveen vs Feyenoord Prediction
SC Heerenveen got the better of Willem II in the previous round to book their berth in the quarterfinals of the KNVB Cup. However, the hosts were certainly given a run for their money in that latter matchup, as the scores read 1-1, at the end of both regulation and extra time.
Nevertheless, the home team brilliantly kept their nerves in the penalty shoot, while their counterparts missed twice, subsequently handing SC Heerenveen a much-deserved win.
On the other hand, Feyenoord took down Fortuna Sittard in their respective round of sixteen clash. Although the visitors were also forced to endure an extra half hour, a super late strike from Luciano Narsingh, helped his side to a 2-1 victory, at the last blast of the whistle.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have been placing nothing but their best foot forward in their recent outings. Impressively, Feyenoord have come out on top in each of their past four trips on the road, and have stumbled just once in their last eight as well.
In sharp contrast, SC Heerenveen have been struggling to taste success, even in their own backyard. Miserably, the hosts are without a win in their past four clashes here in the running. Taking into account that the visitors have also secured the bragging rights in four of their past five trips here, count on Feyenoord to emerge victoriously in this one.
Furthermore, the guests have been a threat in the final third, especially in their recent outings. In fact, they have scored two goals or more in four of their previous five clashes away from home.
In addition, six of the last eight h2h meetings at this stadium have witnessed over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards. As such, a high scoring affair is certainly on the cards come Thursday.
