Heerenveen vs Willem II: Prediction
After comfortable 3-1 victory at RKC Waalwijk last Sunday, The Super Frisians have climbed to fifth in the table. With a WDL record of 7-6-3 (27:19 GD) and superb form (one defeat in the last ten league games), their chase for European spots is ongoing.
Their last home game was superb 3-2 comeback v Vitesse, having been 0-2 down. Under Johnny Jansen, Heerenveen are currently unbeaten at home, though they struggle to break teams down. Five times they’ve drawn, having won against Zwolle, Sparta and Vitesse, scoring ten and conceding seven.
Willem II shocked the league leaders in Amsterdam and rampaging Ajax have suffered their first loss in the Eredivisie. Tricolores are still the most pleasant surprise in Dutch football, sitting at fourth with nine wins, two draws and five defeats under their belt.
Koster’s men rank among better teams away from home. Three losses, one draw and four wins, having scored 13 while conceding 14.
Jansen will only be missing Jan Ras, youngster whose season’s over due to cruciate ligament rupture. Due to same injury, guests will be without services of Fernando Lewis.
Both teams to score is a viable bet considering their h2h history and recent form. Heerenveen conceded a goal in five of their last six home matches while Tricolores haven’t scored only twice in their eight travels.
I’d like to back Jansen’s men to win this. Guests are still in seventh heaven following huge win last week so Super Frisians, currently unbeaten at Abe Lenstra Stadion might bring them crashing down. Draw No Bet, just to be safe.
