Nonetheless, they started domestic affairs in some style, bagging a demolishing 5-1 victory over Groningen on the opening Matchday and they will be looking to build on such display and pick up a result against Heerenveen in one of the most exciting clashes of the round away at Abe Lenstra.

The hosts also began the new Eredivisie campaign in a victorious fashion, bagging three goals in an away victory over PEC Zwolle last weekend.

Morten Thorsby was the man who inspired the initial success for De Superfriezen by bagging a brace and setting up the third goal from left winger Arber Zeneli. Interestingly, the Norwegian youngster was sent off early in the second half and he will be forced to skip the important Vitas tie on Sunday.

Heerenveen vs Vitesse: Head-to-head

  • Heerenveen lead the H2H tie by three wins, but Vitesse were much more successful in the most recent history of matches against De Superfriezen.
  • Vitas won three and drew two of last five encounters against Heerenveen and they netted four goals on two separate occasions in last three H2H outings.
  • Both teams were on target in three of last four head to head matches.

Heerenveen vs Vitesse: Prediction

What else but goals could we expect when these two sides take on each other in the last game of the Matchday on Sunday afternoon?

The hosts will be handicapped without the man who guided them through to the inaugural win last weekend. They will be up against a very strong opposition which bagged an impressive five-goal tally in the first round.

Knowing that Jan Olde Riekerink’s men afforded 11 goals in last two defeats in friendlies against Hoffenheim and Levante, we just have to go for Vitas to score two or more goals as the main betting suggestion at the odds of 2.37.

The Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS should be a banker at 1.90, while braver tipsters might fancy the 5.50 odds offered for Vitesse to win & BTTS.
