Heerenveen vs Vitesse
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Abe Lenstra Stadion.
Heerenveen and Vitesse will close the proceedings on an exciting Eredivisie day on Saturday when they take on each other at Abe Lenstra Stadion. The teams have had a completely opposite journey so far in the season.
While the hosts have been struggling badly to perform throughout most of the campaign, Vitas were the most pleasant surprise in the division. Nevertheless, both sides’ fortuned have turned in the last couple of weeks and it is hard to say which team will enter the tie as the favourites.
Johnny Jansen looks to have found the recipe to help his team in keeping things tight at the back. Heerenveen kept back-to-back clean sheets against the likes of Feyenoord (a 3-0 win) and Twente (a 0-0 draw) in the last two rounds.
Knowing that Vitesse did not shine in the last two of their games, we would not be shocked to see De Superfriezen keeping their stellar form going here.
Heerenveen vs Vitesse Head-to-head
- The draw has been the most common of the three outcomes in the history of this match-up. It happened on 23 occasions in 59 matches.

- Vitesse won two and drew one of the last three matches against De Superfriezen.
Heerenveen vs Vitesse Prediction
Vitas dropped to the third position in the Eredivisie standings after failing to beat the relegation-threatened RKC Waalwijk seven days ago on the home court. They had to settle for a 1-1 draw on the occasion, showing an uninspiring attacking performance against one of the worst defensive teams in the division.
The team led by Thomas Letsch took just one point in the last two league outings, although they have played the likes of VVV (a terrible 4-1 loss) and RKC Waalwijk in the process.
Since the hosts grew in form and confidence with two straight clean sheets, we just have to go for the home win pick, priced up at the massive 3.80 odds.
The more conservative punters can go with Heerenveen not to lose at the 1.80 odds.
