Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Utrecht and Heerenveen face each other in Sunday’s matinee at Stadion Galgenwaard in what is expected to be an interesting Eredivisie encounter. Utrecht failed to spoil PSV’s party in Eindhoven in their season opener, but they are surely capable of making life difficult for Heerenveen in front of home fans. All Zidane Iqbal, Bart Ramselaar, and Isac Lidberg are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home side.
De Superfriezen, on the other hand, kicked off the new domestic campaign with a nice 3-1 win over RKC Waalwijk, and given their attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. Defender Sven van Beek faces race against the clock to be fit for Sunday’s clash, while midfielder Pelle van Amersfoort remains in the recovery room. A man to watch in the away team will be summer signing Ion Nicolaescu, who opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend.
Highlighted Team (Utrecht):
Established on July 1, 1970, Utrecht is a Dutch club that competes in the Eredivisie. The club was founded as a merger of VV DOS, USV Elinkwijk, and Velox, and it has to be noted that VV DOS did well to win the Eredivisie trophy back in 1958.
Utrecht, on the other hand, have yet to win the national championship, but they have lifted three KNVB Cup trophies (1984/85, 2002/03, 2003/04). Leo van Veen is leading the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 153 goals. Speaking of the club’s colours, they were white and red shirts when playing at home, while blue is the dominant colour of their away jersey.
Due to the hooligan clashes, Utrecht have a rivalry with Dutch giants Ajax. The games between the two clubs have always been very tense on the field. Utrecht welcome their rivals at Stadion Galgenwaard, the venue which can hold up to 23,750 people. The stadium was opened back in May 1936.
