Vitesse vs Heerenveen Prediction & Match Preview

Vitesse vs Heerenveen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 16 February 2020
Kick-Off at 11:15 UK/ 12:15 CET
Venue: GelreDome (Arnhem).

The hosts were left heartbroken after the loss against Groningen on the road. This ended a six-game unbeaten streak for Vitesse who are 6th in the table right now. Every point is crucial for the side if they wish to get into a Europa qualification spot.

Vitesse is fresh from a home defeat against Ajax in the Cup. Apart from that, they have been pretty consistent at home. They are unbeaten in the last 3 league games at home.

On the other hand, Heerenveen is coming into this game on the back of two league defeats on the road. This completes a six-game winless run in the league. Goal scoring is not a problem for them but conceding has been a regular scene for the team managed by Johnny Jansen.

Most of the goals that Heerenveen scored came on the road. So it is safe to bet on both teams scoring with 1.57 odds.

More than half the outings of Johnny Jansen’s teams saw a final score with more than 2.5 goals. This trend can also be seen in 3 of their 5 recent h2h matches as well. Since both sides have been good at attacking this season we can bet on a score over 2.5 goals with 1.62 odds.
