2018-19 Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 26 August 2018
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Abe Lenstra Stadion (Heerenveen).
Heerenveen have started the season well and will be hoping to keep up this unbeaten start as they meet Feyenoord on Sunday. Meanwhile, Feyenoord recovered from an opening day shocking defeat with a comfortable win against Excelsior last weekend.
A point separates the two teams as they go into Sunday’s clash and we hope to see a tough game after 90 minutes. Heerenveen started the season with a 3-2 win of Zwolle and went on to draw against Vitesse last weekend.
Heerenveen where shortchanged in the possession stats as they gave up 65% overall possession to Vitesse. They had just 3 shots on target in that game. Heerenveen took the lead in the 26th minute but surrendered the lead 9 minutes to stoppage time as Vitesse pulled level.
Heerenveen are now 5th in the league table and hope to go up higher after Sunday.
Feyenoord lost shockingly to new sides De Graafschap in the opening game but bounced back last week against Excelsior.
Van Persie opened the score after 17 minutes, they waited till 77th minute to add another goal. The game went on until Van der Heijden sealed it in the 89th minute time make it 3-0 for Feyenoord.
The fans will be hoping to see a repeat of such performance this week.
