Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Out-of-sorts Heerenveen will look to put an end to their four-game losing run when they take on Cambuur in the Eredivisie round 22. De Superfriezen have been struggling to find their form of late, and, as a result, they are six points behind the playoffs berth ahead of Sunday’s clash. Syb Van Ottele is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in a 2-1 loss to Feyenoord, while all Pelle van Amersfoort, Andries Noppert, and Sven van Beek are out of contention with injuries.
The hosts, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, and seeing that they will go for a victory as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Marco Tol limped off with injury in a goalless draw with Nijmegen, with Leon Bergsma likely to step up, while Jamie Jacobs faces the race against clock to be fit for the match.
Highlighted Team (Heerenveen):
Heerenveen is a Dutch football club that is well known for their white shirts with blue stripes. De Superfriezen (The Super Frisians) play home matches at Abe Lenstra Stadium, which has the capacity of 26,400 people.
Heerenveen have yet to win the Eredivisie title, but they impressed in the 1999/00 season, with the team finishing the process in second position in the standings. Thanks to a top-two finish, the club booked their place in the Champions League. Heerenveen, though, recorded only one in the group stages of the elite competition as they defeated Olympiakos 1-0 at home ground. De Superfizien retain a fierce rivals with Cambuur, and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two teams.
It has to be noted that Heerenveen won the Dutch Cup in the 2008/09 season, with the team beating Twente on penalties in the title game. New Chelsea signing Hakim Ziyech played for Heerenveen at the start of his senior career.
