SC Heerenveen vs Vitesse Prediction

The return of Eredivise action, post the international break, was certainly not kind to SC Heerenveen who were handed a 2-1 defeat by PSV in their last trip on the road. Nevertheless, it is certainly worth mentioning that the loss was just the home team’s third of the campaign.

Johnny Jansen’s men have picked up the win in four of their previous six games in the top flight, garnering fourteen points from a possible eighteen.

On the other hand, Vitesse are on an alarming four-match losing streak at the moment. The visiting contingent lost to Sparta Rotterdam in their previous clash on the road. Prior to that matchup, the guests admitted defeat to Groningen by a 2-1 scoreline.

With back to back losses, the visitors are now sporting no more than a two-point cushion over their counterparts on the ladder. Furthermore, Leonid Slutsky’s men have now lost their last two outings to teams that are dwelling below them on the ladder.

Meanwhile, SC Heerenveen are the only other side apart from Ajax to remain unbeaten at home. Hence, the hosts have every reason to have their hopes up this week.

Be that as it may, the home side have had no more than a share of the spoils in their five of their last seven games here. Taking into account that their previous meeting with this foe on home soil also ended as a tie, a draw no bet is sizing up to be the safest punt in this one.

Additionally, there have been no dearth of goals when these two sides lock horns. Eight of their past ten h2h clashes here have featured both teams on the scorecards, while six of those ten have also witnessed over 2.5 goals on the charts.

With the hosts deprived of a clean sheet in their last two games here as well, count on both teams to rack up the goals tally this week.
