Heerenveen vs Willem II – Prediction (Eredivisie – 13.12.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

With their third victory in four matches last time out (each of which saw both teams score) SC Heerenveen are better off after 16 games than in comparison to four of the last five campaigns. That noted, the Abe Lenstra Stadium averages a league-low 2.13 goals per-match on average (league average: 3.25), potentially putting importance on the first goal. Generally well-behaved, Heerenveen have received a league-low 15 bookings this season (0.94 per-match on average). Even so, the opposition on the day has received more bookings than Heerenveen in just one of the Super Frisians’ last three league games.

Willem II recently won away to champions Ajax at double-figure odds. Once again outsiders in an away league game, it could be at the bookmakers’ peril, as their W/D rate in such games since the start of 2018/19 is 57.89%. However, they have still conceded the opener in a majority (five) of eight away league games. Visiting coach Adrie Koster has a split record vs Heerenveen (W6, D1, L6), though he is on an eight-game run in the fixture without a draw. Notably, five of the last six such clashes have produced over 3.5 match goals (4.83 per-match on average).

Players to watch: Anders Dreyer has assisted Jens Odgaard for a second-half goal in each of Heerenveen’s last two league victories. Mike Ndayishimiye’s 42nd minute strike sent Willem on their way to victory last time out, and he has scored a first-half goal in consecutive appearances.

Stat attack: Just one of Heerenveen’s eight home league games has seen a goalless first half (1.38 first-half goals per-match). Terrible Tilburgers! Willem received a red card in each of the last two H2Hs. Willem have been winning at both HT/FT in five of their last seven league matches.
