High flying Heerenveen and Willem II meet in an intriguing Friday night Eredivisie fixture at the Abe Lenstra Stadion. Both clubs feature in-form attacks that are tipped to steal the show in a high scoring match.

Heerenveen Form


Heerenveen have overcome a slow start to the season with three wins in their last four Eredivisie matches. Johnny Jansen’s side have climbed to fifth on the table and are very hard to beat at the Abe Lenstra Stadion where Heerenveen are undefeated in 15 of their last 16 Eredivisie matches.

Willem II Form


Willem II are having a fantastic season, currently sitting fourth in the Eredivisie where they are undefeated in seven of their last eight matches. Adrie Koster’s side threw away a 3-1 lead at Den Haag in a 3-3 draw, but rebounded with a resounding 4-0 home win against Sparta Rotterdam.

Ché Nunnely, Mike Trésor Ndayishimiye, Freek Heerkens and Mats Köhlert were all on target before a huge 2-0 win against Ajax in Amsterdam. Trésor Ndayishimiye opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Damil Dankerlui gave Willem II a late cushion.

It was a slightly fortunate win, Willem II having 33% possession and 9-29 shots with goalkeeper Timon Wellenreuther producing a man of the match performance.
