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

Calling it a tie

These are two teams on 6+ game winless streaks. RKC have no wins in their last six games, with a draw and five losses. However, Heerenveen have been relatively worse; they are without a win in their last nine games. As a matter of fact, that nine match winless streak includes an eight match losing streak. It’s fair to point out that two of the last three meetings between these teams ended in draws. Both teams have not been able to win games in over a month; with this in mind, we believe their respective winless streaks will continue here, with the spoils being shared at the end of this match.

Both teams will leak goals

This is more of a both teams to concede pick, rather than both teams to score. Heerenveen have not done a very good job defensively; they saw their defence breached in nine of their last 10 games across all competitions. Like Heerenveen, RKC have not been able to keep the goals out; they allowed at least one goal in all of their last eight games. To be fair, RKC have scored their fair share of goals; they found the back of the net in 12 of their last 14 games in all competitions. Additionally, both teams scored in five of the last six clashes between RKC and Heerenveen; considering both teams found the net in six of Waalwijk’s last eight games, both teams should score.

Goals will flow

These teams tend to score a lot of goals between them whenever they meet; four of their last six encounters went above the 2.5 goal mark, with three of those games going over 3.5. We’ve already established that both teams have conceded goals consistently throughout the season; Heerenveen allowed eight goals in their last five games alone. As a matter of fact, RKC conceded over 2 goals per game on average in their last eight games. Considering six of those eight games went over 2.5, this will likely be a high-scoring game.
