Heerenveen vs Willem II Prediction
Towards the end of the last season, Heerenveen had only one win in their past five matches in the league schedule. They were 10 points behind the visitors in the table.
But Willem II was not so different either as they too finished the season with a downward slope in form. The Tricolors also had only one win in the previous five clashes in their schedule.
Besides, their last h2h encounter resulted in a draw. And at home, the host has lost only once to the Tricolors in their previous 18 h2h clashes.
Willem II had a troubled away run in the league last season, and they had finished with a three-game losing streak on the road. Based on those stats, the double chance favoring Heerenveen will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
Also, the BTTS will come in handy for the ninety minutes as both teams have scored in the past four h2h meetings in a row.
