Heerenveen vs NEC – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

NEC have won two of their last three meetings with Heerenveen ahead of Sunday’s contest. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

NEC Double Chance

Heerenveen’s confidence is a rock bottom following a run of four straight defeats and NEC could be worth backing to take advantage of their host’s slump on Sunday. NEC came out on top in two of their last three meetings with De Superfriezen and they are unbeaten in their last seven encounters with them overall. With that strong head-to-head record in mind, we recommend siding with NEC in the double chance market this weekend.

Under 2.5 Goals

Heerenveen’s 2-0 reverse at home to Fortuna Sittard was the club’s fourth defeat to nil on the spin an De Superfriezen have notched just three times in their last seven Eredivisie fixtures combined. NEC meanwhile, have registered just three goals in their last four league assignments, while four of their last five matches have produced under 2.5 goals. We don’t expect a deluge of action when these shot-shy teams clash on Sunday, so back under 2.5 goals to hit the net again.

Under 1.5 Heerenveen Team Goals

With zero goals in their last 360 minutes of Eredivisie football, Heerenveen have looked devoid of ideas in attack in recent weeks, though the alarming drop off in their output could allow bettors to land a winner in a niche market. Heerenveen have only scored one goal in their last four matches at the Abe Lenstra Stadion and with their lack of punch hugely problematic, they can be backed in the under 1.5 team goals market with confidence.

Heerenveen vs NEC: Match Preview and Team News


Heerenveen confirmed Ole Tobiasen as the club’s interim boss until the end of the season on February 4th following the January sacking of Johnny Jansen, though the Dane couldn’t inspire a turnaround in fortunes against Fortuna. While relegation fears aren’t quite rampant at the Abe Lenstra Stadion, Heerenveen will need to find a way to halt their dramatic slide soon. Another poor result this weekend could see them tumble all the way down to 13th position.


NEC were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw at PEC Zwolle in their last league fixture, though they are still handily placed in 9th spot. Rogier Meijer’s charges have lost just once in their last seven matches on the road since early October and the popular coach will hope to have Pedro Ruiz, Joep van der Sluijs, Mathias De Wolf and Rens Van Eijden – who are all injury doubts – back in contention this weekend.
