Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
RKC and Heerenveen go head to head at Mandemakers Stadion in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Sunday’s program. RKC aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to AZ Alkmaar and Sparta Rotterdam, with the team eyeing their only second win of the season. Heerenveen, on the other hand, aim to return to winning ways following a 3-0 loss to AZ Alkmaar before the international break, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to do so.
De Superfriezen want to regain their spot in top four, and we are positive that they will prove their worth on the field in Sunday’s football match. You should bear in mind that Heerenveen are after their fifth consecutive win over RKC in all competitions.
