Heerenveen vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction
A double draw in the last two matches has pushed Heerenveen to the 7th spot beside Willem II in the table. The Super Frisians are unbeaten at home in this league season but have accumulated 5 draws in it.
These draws have cost them some valuable points and the Gaffer, Johnny Jansen will be working on taking all three points in the match.
Heerenveen had their previous home encounter with Groningen who is close to the host in the table. Even though the hosting side led the first half in the last minute with a penalty goal netted by Faik H, the opposition replied in the same coin in the second half.
In the meantime, Sparta Rotterdam is struggling to find a win in the campaign. They are currently in the 11th position in the league table with 4 each in all possible outcomes.
Moreover, the Castle Lords are winless in the last four league away fixtures with two losses in it.
Henk Fraser and his men will be visiting Heerenveen after facing a defeat with Groningen on the road. With Smeets B missing a penalty for Sparta Rotterdam, they lost the chance to lead when Sierhuis netted the opener in the 85th minute.
Also, they had to play with 10 men in the injury time after Coremans T was sent off and Groningen’s Benschop C made sure the penalty wasn’t missed.
Hence, shining light upon the poor away records of the visiting team and Heerenveen’s unbeaten streak at home, it is evident that the host can be counted on to win the game.
