Heerenveen vs RKC Waalwijk Prediction
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be a home win in full-time. Heerenveen has a lead over the visitor on the league table and has a better form in the middle. Their recent losses will hold them back, but we can expect a comeback as the host is on a mixed form in the campaign this season.
The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game, but their four-game winless streak at home might come as a hurdle for the win. On the contrary, RKC has lost their recent two outings in the campaign pulling out just two wins in the last seven away fixtures in their schedule.
Based on these stats, the host is likely to create more chances in the game. We can expect goals from both teams as both defenses are weak. Hence, the BTTS and over 2.5 goals will probably be the ideal choices from the goals area in the encounter.
