Heerenveen and Sparta Rotterdam to Draw

Although Heerenveen was ahead by six points last season compared to Sparta Rotterdam, the two teams drew in both of their meetings in Eredivisie last year and they played a couple of very close games.

In addition to this, both teams enter the new season in good form, winning most of their preseason friendlies. So, all things considered, we can see a duel between Heerenveen and Sparta Rotterdam ending without a winner for a third time in a row.

Heerenveen and Sparta Rotterdam to Draw at Half Time

Since we expect this match to end in a draw, we can also see the two teams being tied at half time. After all, that is usually the case for matches that end without a winner.

Furthermore, three of the last five h2h meetings between Heerenveen and Sparta Rotterdam have also been tied at half times, so we won’t be surprised if that is the case on Friday as well.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in four of the last five head-to-head duels between Heerenveen and Sparta Rotterdam, so we would hardly be surprised if that happens again in this match.

In addition to this, both teams scored in 56% of all Heerenveen matches in Eredivisie last year, while the same thing happened in 47% of all Sparta Rotterdam games in the league last season.

Heerenveen vs Sparta Rotterdam preview: A close encounter in the first round

Heerenveen

Last season, Heerenveen was eighth in the standings, but they were actually closer to the relegation zone in terms of points then they were to the top five teams in the standings. Still, it wasn’t a bad season overall for them, but their fans are certainly hoping for a better one. Meanwhile, Heerenveen enters the new season without any injury concerns.

Sparta Rotterdam

Things looked bleak for Sparta for a while last season, but four wins in the last six matches in the league helped them finish the season in the 14th spot in Eredivisie, one point ahead of relegation playoffs and two points ahead of direct relegation. With that in mind, Sparta Rotterdam is one of the main candidates for relegation this season as well.
