Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Following a 3-1 loss to PSV, Twente will look to stay in top five in the Eredivisie standings when they take on Heerenveen on Matchday 24. The Reds continue with their habit of producing much better displays at home than on the travels, with the team eyeing their 10th win at their De Grolsch Veste. Ramiz Zerrouki is banned for the match, while all Mathias Kjolo, Michal Sadilek, and Dimitrios Limnios should miss out with injuries.
Heerenveen, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to RKC Waalwijk, and seeing that Twente have turned their stadium into a real fortress, we are tempted to put our money on Ron Jans’ troops. In their last meeting in Enschede Twente defeated Heerenveen 2-0, and we predict that history is going to repeat itself. Defender Sven van Beek is sidelined with an Achilles tendon problem, while goalkeeper Andries Noppert remains doubtful.
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.
