Heerenveen vs Heracles
Date: Sunday, 23th October, 2016
Kick-off: 15:45 UK
Venue: Abe Lenstra Stadion, Heerenveen.
Heerenveen have been phenomenal so far in the season. The team led by Jurgen Streppel is currently holding the third position in the league standings, in front of the likes such as PSV, AZ, Vitesse and Twente. The team will have a terrific opportunity to maintain the third position as they will be hosting the team from the bottom part of the league table, Heracles. The match is set to kick off on Sunday afternoon at Abe Lenstra Stadium in Heerenveen.
Heerenven were brilliant in the last three matches, demolishing ADO Den Haag and Groningen with 0-3 wins away from home. And they managed to grab a point against one of the strongest teams in PSV at their home ground. Heracles had a very difficult schedule over the last couple of weeks, but their work rate and composure has been brilliant that helped them to avoid defeats in the last three matches against Groningen, Twente and PSV. The away draw at PSV is probably the greatest upset the team led by John Stegeman have made in this season so far.
