PEC Zwolle vs Heerenveen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Friday, 10 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: MAC PARK Stadion, Zwolle.
PEC Zwolle and Heerenveen will have the honour of raising the curtain to the new Eredivisie season on Friday evening at MAC PARK Stadion.
These two outfits just missed the Europa League play-offs in the previous term of the competition, finishing just points shy of the top seven in the league ladder.
Bluefingers will definitely enter the game higher on confidence after winning back-to-back friendlies against Levante and RKC Waalwijk, bagging three goals apiece in wins.
Vito van Crooij, who arrived this summer from VVV, might be a terrific addition to team’s attacking line.
The Dutchman was among goalscorers in the last test with RKC Waalwijk and he is our top suggestion for the anytime scorer pick here.
PEC Zwolle vs Heerenveen: Head-to-head
- We could be in for a high-scoring thriller judging by teams’ most recent H2H history.
- Four of last five head to head games saw goals at both ends and produced three or more goals.
- Zwolle were the more successful outfit last year when they won both meetings with Heerenveen, netting five goals along the way.
- Bluefingers won each of last three H2H games with the Super Frisians.
PEC Zwolle vs Heerenveen: Prediction
The hosts could well extend the fine streak in H2H games with the Super Frisians based on Heerenveen’s horrendous defensive displays in latest friendlies.
The visitors conceded as many as eight goals in a demolishing defeat to German Hoffenheim. Such a devastating loss was followed by a 1-3 defeat to Spanish Levante last weekend.
Such defensive woes of Heerenveen’s will be the music to the ears of can Crooij and company who are well worth backing to net two or more goals at the 1.90 odds.
The Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS is also a must-take pick at the same 1.90, while the home win is paid at 2.20.
Zwolle only lost 5 of 17 home games last season which combined with Heerenveen’s disastrous spell of form in the off-season makes the home win or draw double chance a banker at the odds of 1.40.

PEC Zwolle Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 1.90
