Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
A place in the Eredivisie Conference League playoffs final will be at stake when Twente and Heerenveen go head to head at de Grolsch Veste. The Reds won the first leg 2-1 and, as a result, they are with one foot in the final. With no fresh injury worries to report, Ron Jans is unlikely to make changes to the starting XI that faced Heerenveen on Thursday evening. Max Bruns, though, remains in the recovery room.
The visitors, on the other hand, need to adopt an attack-minded approach in the reverse fixture if they are to overcome a one-goal deficit. Since Twente should have a number of opportunities to score on the break, home win should be considered. Both van Aken and van Beek are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team ahead of the trip to Enschede.
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.
