Utrecht vs Heerenveen Prediction & Match Preview

Utrecht vs Heerenveen
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Friday, 2 October 2020
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Stadion Galgenwaard.

One of the most interesting clashes in Dutch Eredivisie this weekend is taking place at Galgenwaard on Friday.

In-form Heerenveen will try to maintain 100% win rate at very hot ground.

Not many teams managed to beat Utrecht as visitors in the last couple of seasons. In terms of the odds, away win is priced at huge 4.00 odds at the moment, while chances for hosts to achieve same success are at 1.75.

Both squads have very high ambitions in this campaign – to cause troubles for top-tier teams like Ajax, AZ, PSV and Feyenoord and to qualify for Europa League through regular season.

Utrecht vs Heerenveen Head-to-head

All of the head to head duels between these opponents were super-exciting and enjoyable to watch in the last couple of seasons, offering high number of goals and action.

Sixteen out of the last seventeen meetings ended either BTTS or Over 2.5 FT, so we are expecting to see something similar this time as well.

In terms of all time stats, there was total of 61 duels – 24 were won by Utrecht, 22 by Heerenveen. Utrecht have six straight victories at this stadium though.

Utrecht vs Heerenveen Prediction

Heerenveen have surprising found themselves at the top of Eredivisie table three rounds in. They have collected the maximum number of points so far, but there were some lucky circumstances in some games.

For example, they were not dominant against VVV last weekend at home but still won the match 1-0, mainly because of one-man advantage.

Victories against Willem II and Fortuna Sittard were different stories though. Youngster Joey Veerman had a great season opening, bagging two goals and providing two assists.

Utrecht have played only two games so far – they defeated RKC Waalwijk at this ground easily 3-1, while duel in Venlo ended without a winner 1-1.

As you can see, this squad rarely keeps a clean sheet. We are expecting a lot of goals, so both teams to score at 1.50 is probably the biggest banker bet available for the weekend.

Utrecht vs Heerenveen Bet Tips

  • Both teams to score @ 1.50
