VVV-Venlo vs SC Heerenveen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Seacon Stadion – De Koel (Venlo).
VVV-Venlo have been alternating between wins and defeats in their recent clashes and have picked up just six points from a maximum of twelve from their last four games. The home team were handed a narrow 1-0 defeat by Willem II in their previous trip on the road, prior to which they came out on top against Groningen by a 2-1 scoreline.
It has been quite a while since SC Heerenveen last had a taste of success. The away side have salvaged not more than a point in four of their previous six games each, the last of which was a 1-1 draw against Utrecht at home.
Although the away side are on a six-game winless run at the moment, the fact that they have been faring well in their previous visits to this venue certainly puts the pressure on VVV-Venlo.
VVV-Venlo vs SC Heerenveen Head to head (h2h)
- Their last two clashes have ended in a tie.

- Six of their previous ten meetings have seen goals down each end.
- A high scoring clash with over 2.5 goals on the charts have occurred five times in their past nine games.
VVV-Venlo vs SC Heerenveen Prediction
The hosts have lost just once in their last three games on home soil. However, it needs saying that one of their only two wins here came against a newly promoted side that has currently hit rock bottom in the table.
Furthermore, it has been nearly a decade since Venlo last got the better of Heerenveen at home. They have also gone on to admit defeat thrice in their six games since as well.
Taking into account that their last meeting here ended in a tie and the fact that visitors’ only one win in the new campaign came in one of their trips on the road, a double chancing backing either a draw or Heerenveen to win is the safest punt in this one.
In addition, the away side have found the back of the net before the break, in two of their last three outings. Given that their previous head to head matchup here have also seen the guests breach Venlo in the opening forty-five minutes, expect Heerenveen to slot the ball home in the first half itself this Saturday.
