Heerenveen vs VVV-Venlo Predictions & Match Preview

Heerenveen vs VVV-Venlo
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Tuesday, 23rd April 2019
Kick-off at 18.45 UK/ 19.45 CET
Venue: Abe Lenstra Stadion (Heerenveen).

Heerenveen has an outside chance to make the European playoffs, and for that, the team needs to put in a flawless display in their remaining set of games. They have to make up a difference of seven points, with just 12 left to play for. That’s already a tough ask, but with the side having nothing to lose, they just might go for it.

Venlo is one of the very few teams that have avoided a win like a plague in the last several match-days. Their winless run saw them improving their points-tally by just two from the last five games. While they may be safe from relegation, due to the number of points they acquired earlier, fans feel that this is not the appropriate manner to conclude a season.

SC Heerenveen vs VVV-Venlo Prediction

Heerenveen has nothing to lose and will go all in for the playoffs. They do have the home advantage, and they are taking on an opponent that they have dominated for quite a long time. In fact, in the last 20 years, only once has Heerenveen lost against Venlo, and that came back in 2010. Even better, at this venue, the hosts hold a 100% unbeaten record, and in overall encounters, they have never failed to find the back of the net.

On top of all this, Venlo is winless in their last five games, eight of their last nine, and in 12 of their last 13 on the road. Meanwhile, Heerenveen was unbeaten in six of their last seven home ties. Expect a thorough win by the hosts this weekend.
