Heerenveen vs Feyenoord
Netherlands – KNVB Cup
Date: Thursday, 11 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Abe Lenstra Stadion.
The Stadium Club are one of the best teams in the competition. In fact, they are considered to be one amongst the three titans in the Dutch top flight.
They had finished third in the table the last season, and at present, are placed fifth in standings, despite having a game in hand.
Do also note that they have a lead of nine points over the Super Frisians, who have played one extra match. On top of that, Dick Advocaat’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.
However, they have been struggling a bit in the last few weeks, and towards the end of January they had lost against this same opponent in a comprehensive manner.
Moreover, Johnny Jansen’s men also are in better form, based on recent fixtures.
By the looks of things, expect goals from both teams this Thursday.
Heerenveen vs Feyenoord: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Super Frisians had recorded a 3-0 win the last time these two locked horns, and it was just three weeks back.

- 11 of the previous 14 encounters had three or more goals.
- 14 of the former 20 clashes at this stadium had goals from both teams.
Heerenveen vs Feyenoord Prediction
Jansen’s men were unbeaten in six of their preceding seven overall match-ups, and they remained so in eight of their past eleven appearances at home.
Note that they are also on a two-fixture winning run at home, and they had defeated this same rival with a 3-0 scorecard just three weeks back.
However, note that the Stadium Club have been the far better team this season in the league, and they also have a phenomenal h2h record against this foe over the years. In the process, they have also scored in plenty.
Moreover, this is a knockout game, with a spot in the semis on stake.
Expect a fierce encounter this Thursday, and goals in plenty.
