Tip Reasoning

  • Heerenveen have lost each of their last seven matches.
  • Heerenveen failed to score in each of their last four home games.
  • Henk Veerman returns to face his former club after top-scoring for Heerenveen last term.
  • Utrecht are unbeaten across the last seven H2H meetings.

Not so ‘Super’ Frisians in freefall

A run of seven straight defeats has left Heerenveen in a relegation battle that they were not expecting this season. While they appear to be a steady mid-table side, just six points separated them from the bottom-three ahead of the weekend games.

The appointment of Ole Tobiason as Heerenveen’s caretaker manager has done little to soothe their form, with three defeats following. The Super Frisians at least scored their first goal under Tobiason’s stewardship in their last game, but that served only as a consolation in a otherwise woeful 3-1 defeat.

Utrecht have Europe on their minds

While Utrecht will hold on to their place in the European play-off positions no matter what happens here, a recent run of patchy form has cast some doubt upon their chances against a Heerenveen side who are enduring the longest currently active Eredivisie losing streak.

I predict that this game will be perfect for Utrecht to kick-start some positive form by taking advantage of a markedly poor Heerenveen side. However, this could be a tight encounter with a 1-0 scoreline being likely.

Finally, I am tempted to take a chance on former Heerenveen talisman Henk Veerman rubbing salt in their wounds by scoring on his return to the Abe Lenstra. Veerman contributed to three goals in this fixture, but now seeks his first as an Utrecht player.
