Heerenveen vs Groningen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 14th April 2019
Kick-off at 13.30 UK/ 14.30 CET
Venue: Abe Lenstra Stadion (Heerenveen).
Groningen is just below the playoff spots and needs to make up only two points from the next five match-days to get into the mix. But they are against some of the best teams in the country, and they have a poor away record. On top of that, they are taking on another play-off-hopeful Heerenveen.
The fact that Heerenveen has seen some recent struggles might be cheer-worthy for Groningen, but they do know how to raise their level at home. On any account this game should provide the thrills, considering either team is desperate for points, and with their playoff future hanging in the balance.

Heerenveen vs Groningen Prediction
Groningen has an awful away record. Since August of last year, they have had three wins on the road, and two of them were against relegation-battlers. On top of that, Heerenveen was unbeaten in eight of their last eleven games. H2h games too put Heerenveen as the favorites. Seven of the last eleven overall h2h wins and 12 of the last 15 at this venue were recorded by them.
On the basis of these observations, the top pick is definitely the hosts to avoid a loss.
But Groningen is no pushover either. They may have a dubious away record, but the team was unbeaten in 12 of their 15 attempts. Moreover, they are just two points away from a Europa-playoff spot. Also, nine of the last twelve h2h ties and four of the last five at this venue had goals from both teams. Expect the same to happen this Sunday.
