Heerenveen vs Feyenoord
Date: Sunday, 6 May 2018
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: Abe Lenstra Stadion, Heerenveen.
Heerenveen could have clinched the Europa League playoffs with a win over NAC Breda last Sunday, but instead of maintaining the superb run of form against the struggling opposition, De Superfriezen suffered a demolishing 3-0 loss to put their ambitions in jeopardize.
Jurgen Streppel’s squad is now set to play the last term’s champions Feyenoord on the final day, looking to snatch a win which would keep them inside the top-seven in the Eredivise standings. Nonetheless, making it count will be a super tough challenge for the hosts given they are up against an outfit which has won seven league games on the bounce as well as the KNVB Beker final against AZ.
Sadly for Feyenoord and their fans, the team will not play the most elite football competition on the continent next year as they are destined to the Europa League football having finished third in spite of such a strong series of results in the last quarter of the campaign.
Heerenveen vs Feyenoord: Head-to-head
Feyenoord were obviously the more successful side in the history of the H2H matches against De Superfriezen.
Der Club aan de Maas won 25 and lost 14 of 53 matches against Heerenveen, but the H2H stats is all level at 14 wins apiece when it comes to games played at Abe Lenstra Stadion.
Both teams were on target in all of last six head to head matches.
Heerenveen vs Feyenoord: Prediction
Feyenoord won eight on the bounce in all competitions and there are no doubts Giovanni van Bronckhorst and his men will want to finish the campaign on high in spite of the fact the match has a much greater importance for Heerenveen. The away win is worth backing at the 2.20 odds knowing that De Superfriezen shipped three goals to the relegation strugglers NAC Breda seven days ago.
We generally expect to witness a high-scoring contest given that each of last six head to head matches saw the BTTS option “come in”.
