Match Preview and Predictions

  • Sunday’s action opens with the 57th Eredivisie meeting between Vitesse Arnhem and Heerenveen (VIT: W16, D22, L18). The hosts are enjoying their finest ever start to an Eredivisie campaign, although they did lose as favourites for the first time this top-flight season in the last round (W7, D1, L1 when favourites).
  • Vitesse boast a perfect record at home (W5), scoring 2+ goals in every game, whilst also leading at HT in all but one (HT: W4, D1). Moreover, Thomas Letsch’s charges have conceded just two goals at home so far, both of which came between 46’-60 whilst they were already leading.
  • Visiting Heerenveen are now winless in four league games following a third consecutive draw last time out, although they showed great resolve in coming from behind at any stage of the match in their last two. Despite that slight wobble, this still represents a stronger 11-game start than in nine of Heerenveen’s last ten top-flight campaigns (W5, D4, L2).
  • Each of the ‘Super Frisians’ six away league matches have witnessed both teams score, whilst five saw the first half produce over 1.5 total goals (HT: W3, D2, L1). Heerenveen may have to get their business done early here if they are to defy the odds though (W1, D1, L1 as away outsiders), as nine of their 11 scored away goals have arrived before HT.
  • Players to watch: Oussama Tannane has had a hand in six of Vitesse’s last seven goals (two goals) and is the first player since 2005 to assist four consecutive league goals for the club. For Heerenveen, Henk Veerman continued his scintillating scoring season with another strike last time out, and with nine goals so far he’s already enjoying his finest scoring Eredivisie campaign.
  • Hot stat: Expect goals as 20 of the last 23 competitive H2Hs saw both teams score, 15 saw over 2.5 total goals, whilst 13 saw both!
