Zwolle – Heerenveen betting tips for today, August 10, 2018.
Football: Netherlands – Eredivisie
Tip: BTS – Yes
Match Result: 2:3 WON!!!
|The 63rd Eredivisie season begins after a long summer with Heerenveen’s visit to Zwolle. An even match is expected on paper, as the sides finished just two points apart at the end of last season.|
|Zwolle’s staff have been busy in the transfer market, with their activity positively received. By contrast, precarious times may lie ahead for Heerenveen, with Reza Ghoochannejhad and Denzel Dumfries leaving the club over the summer. Without a key defender and a proven goalscorer, experts believe Heerenveen could struggle.|
|New manager Jan Olde Riekerink takes charge of Heerenveen for the first time. This is his first ever game in charge of an Eredivisie side, and the Dutchman’s greatest honour to date is guiding Galatasaray to a winning Turkish Cup final appearance.|
|Interestingly, both sides played Spanish outfit Levante in a pre-season friendly leading up to this game. A new-look Zwolle, including new number nine Mike van Duinen, won 3-1 whilst Heerenveen’s defensive woes continued as they lost 3-1.|
|Players to watch: Midfield duo Clint Leemans and Vito van Crooy (ZWO) will make their league debuts. The promising duo scored 15 goals and notched nine assists between them for Venlo last term.|
|In the opposite dugout, Riekerink will hope marquee signing Rodney Kongolo can fill Heerenveen’s defensive hole.|
|Stat attack: Indefensible form! Heerenveen have conceded 11 goals across their last two warm up games.|
|Heerenveen conceded the highest number of goals of any team in the top eight last season. Zwolle, meanwhile, were the lowest scorers in the top-half.|
|Zwolle are unbeaten at home vs Heerenveen in their last four H2H meetings (W3, D1).|
|Each of the last five encounters here have seen both teams score, with over 2.5 goals in the game.|
