Utrecht vs Heerenveen
Date: Wednesday, 15 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Galgenwaard (Utrecht).
Utrecht host Heerenveen in the last match of the regular season in Eredivisie on Wednesday evening at Stadion Galgenwaard. These two likes battled it out in the Europa League play-offs in the previous term when Utrecht advanced thanks to the away goal rule (5-5 on aggregate).
Utreg will feature Dutch Europa League play-offs in the post-season this time around too. They share 5th place together with Vitesse and can’t be dropped out of top-seven with a five-point advantage on 8th-placed Groningen and only one game left to play.
The hosts are two points above 7th-placed Heracles who travel to Eindhoven to play last year champions PSV in the last round. It means Utreg will likely play Vitesse in the play-offs regardless of the outcome of this tie with Heerenveen. However, a win here would definitely move the hosts away from the clash against 4th-placed AZ in the play-offs.
Utrecht vs Heerenveen: Head-to-head
We have to expect a goal fest when these two likes come across each other.

The streak includes this term’s 2-3 victory for Utrecht in mid-December last year at Abe Lenstra Stadion.
Utrecht vs Heerenveen: Prediction
Heerenveen had a disappointing campaign this season in Eredivise. They are miles away from the Europa League play-offs sitting 11th ahead of this last round fixture. De Superfriezen boast one of the weakest defensive records in the entire division with as many as 70 goals allowed in 33 affairs.
They ended a five-game winless streak on Sunday beating rock-bottomed NAC Breda 2-1 on the home patch. Each of last four games Heerenveen played saw goals scored at both ends. Utrecht fell 4-1 away at new champions Ajax on Sunday and they have a nice chance to boost up the confidence before the play-offs with a three-pointer here.
Home win & Both Teams To Score has to be the way to go here based on everything written above.
