Vitesse vs Heerenveen – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Heerenveen have lost only one of their last seven Eredivisie fixtures ahead of their trip to Arnhem to play Vitesse. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

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

Heerenveen Double Chance

Heerenveen’s late-season resurgence under interim-boss Ole Tobiasen continued last weekend when De Superfriezen snatched a late draw at home to Cambuur. Heerenveen have now lost just once in seven Eredivisie assignments and more points could be on offer when Tobiasen takes his troops to Arnhem. Vitesse have lost four of their last six tussles and their campaign seems to be petering out. With that in mind, back Heerenveen in the double chance market at the generous odds on offer this weekend.

Both Teams to Score

Recent meetings between Vitesse and Heerenveen have been keenly contested affairs and both teams managed to impact the scoresheet in seven of the last eight encounters between the clubs in the Eredivisie. BTTS has also been a winning bet in each of De Superfriezen’s last four matches in the league and there is a backable pattern in there for bettors to consider on Sunday.

Lois Openda to Score Anytime

Lois Openda bagged his 14th and 15th goals of the Eredivisie campaign in Vitesse’s 2-1 win at Go Ahead Eagles last weekend and with his confidence bolstered, the Belgian should be difficult to handle on Sunday. Openda notched a brace when Vites last played Heerenveen in October and the 22-year-old has the skills to punish the same defence in Sunday’s rematch.

Vitesse vs Heerenveen Match Preview and Team News


Jeroen Houwen and Maximilian Wittek are both out injured this week, while midfielder Riechedly Bazoer is absent through suspension. There are also doubts over the availability of Gnantin Yann Gboho, Alois Dominik Oroz and Nikolai Baden Frederisken for Vitesse. Vites are already guaranteed a top seven finish this term.


Pawel Bochniewicz is the only injured party for Heerenveen this week and interim-boss Ole Tobiasen has options to choose from elsewhere. De Superfriezen’s turnaround in fortunes over the past few months has been remarkable and they can still finish as high as eighth spot in the Eredivisie if results remain favourable.
