Reason For Vitesse vs Heerenveen Predictions

  • Both teams scored in 6 of the last 7 meetings between these two clubs.
  • Both teams scored in 5 of Heerenveen’s last 6 matches.
  • Vitesse are without a win in their last 4 matches in all competitions.
  • Heerenveen are without a win in their last 4 matches in all competitions.

Heerenveen average over 2-goals a game on the road

Vitesse followed up a 1-0 defeat at Groningen in the Eredivisie by being knocked out of the KNVB Beker in midweek in convincing fashion by Ajax, while Heerenveen were also knocked out at the Quarter-Final stage by Feyenoord. 6pts separate 6th placed Vitesse from their guests Heerenveen who occupy 10th spot in the Eredivisie table but the hosts haven’t won any of the pairs’ last four encounters.

Heerenveen have secured three draws and one win against Vitesse in their last four encounters, with six of the duos’ last seven meetings seeing both sides score. Both teams have also scored in five of Heerenveen’s last six matches but with both teams failing to win any of their last four outings, you can see why we have backed Sunday’s clash to end in a stalemate.

Vitesse have only lost twice at home this season and Heerenveen have picked up points in half of their away games this season, with the hosts averaging 1.80 points per home game and the visitors averaging 1.30 points per away game. Vitesse score an average of 1.80 goals per home game and concede 1.10 goals while Heerenveen score an average of 1.90 goals per away game and concede 1.70 goals, which is why we have backed a final scoreline of 2-2 this weekend.

Vitesse don’t lose many games in their own backyard

Over 2,5 goals have been produced in 70% of Vitesse’s home games and 60% have seen both teams score, while 80% of Heerenveen’s trips on the road have seen over 2.5 goals scored and 70% have seen both teams score, adding further weight to our prediction for Sunday’s clash. Vitesse have only kept clean sheets in 30% of their home games while Heerenveen have managed to keep clean sheets in 20% of their away games, and we can’t see either team shutting the other out over ninety minutes this weekend.

Exactly 4-goals have been scored in 30% of Heerenveen’s away games and the visitors have scored more goals on the road (19) than Vitesse have in their own backyard (18). Over 3.5 goals have been scored in half of Heerenveen’s away games this season and we believe this match has the potential to produce all of the required goals for a 2-2 draw.

We’re confident that both teams will score in Sunday’s clash and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-2. Both of these teams have struggled to find their form since returning from the winter break and both have goals in them but don’t keep a lot of clean sheets, which is why we have settled on Sunday’s clash ending in a 2-2 draw.
