These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Groningen Double Chance
Heerenveen continue to toil under interim boss Ole Tobiasen and though they have managed to bag a few draws in recent weeks, De Superfriezen have recorded just a single victory in their last 11 Eredivisie assignments. Groningen meanwhile, had won three out of four games before their recent defeat to Ajax – though they gave the champions a real run for their money in that defeat – and Danny Buijs’s in-form charges look a great value option in the double chance market on Sunday.
Both Teams to Score
Both teams rattled the net when Heerenveen and Groningen last locked horns in the campaign’s early throes back in September and a glance at Trots van het Noorden’s away record indicates a stake in the same market could be worth pursuing this weekend. BTTS has landed in six of Groningen’s last seven away tests and we’re tipping that pattern to continue on Sunday.
Jorgen Strand Larsen to Score Anytime
Norwegian forward Jorgen Strand Larsen notched Groningen’s consolation goal against Ajax last weekend, which came as no surprise to regular watchers of the Eredivisie this season. That was the 22-year-old’s third strike in as many games and Larsen has hit 12 goals in the league overall during an impressive campaign. The ex-Sarpsborg 08 starlet is in the midst of a purple patch and backing him to find the net again could be a smart move.
Heerenveen vs Groningen Match Preview and Team News
Nicolas Madsen, Joost van Aken, Djenahro Nunumete and Pawel Bochniewicz are all out injured for Heerenveen this week, while Siem de Jong is considered a doubt. De Superfriezen earned a point at Sparta last time out, which was their third draw in four games, though wins continue to be elusive for the strugglers.
Groningen could be without the services of Jan Hoekstra, Radinio Balker, Tomas Suslov and Daleho Irandust this weekend. Danny Buijs’s side looked like they were going to cause an upset against Ajax last week after a rip-roaring start to the contest and even though they were eventually beaten, there were positives to draw from an impressive showing.
