Willem II to Win

Heerenveen are in dire straits and De Superfriezen seven-game losing streak has dragged them into the Eredivisie’s relegation tussle. With a temporary manager in charge (Ole Tobiasen) and their most dangerous players sold (Henk & Joey Veerman), Heerenveen look incredibly vulnerable and Willem II are worth backing to take advantage of their plight.

Under 2.5 Goals

With just two goals notched in their last seven games combined, Heerenveen have looked alarmingly toothless in recent weeks and as such, we shouldn’t expect them to pull up any trees on Saturday. In addition, six of Willem II’s last seven Eredivisie assignments have produced under 2.5 goals, so expect little in the way of quality attacking play in Tilburg.

Willem II to Score First

Heerenveen’s confidence looks worryingly brittle at present and De Superfriezen have started their recent fixtures tentatively as a consequence. Ole Tobiasen’s strugglers have conceded the opening goal in 100% of their last seven contests in the Eredivisie – a stat Willem II boss Fred Grim will be fully aware of. With that in mind, we’re tipping the Tricolores to make a fast start to Saturday’s game and Willem II look a solid bet to break the deadlock.

Willem II vs Heerenveen: Match Preview and Team News

Willem II

Willem II lost narrowly for the third time in a row when they slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Groningen last weekend – their third loss by that scoreline on the spin. Manager Fred Grim believes his side are due a change in fortunes, though the Tricolores could be without midfielders Thijs Oosting and Pol Llonch Puyalto as they continue their attempts to spark a revival in form.


The odds on Heerenveen being relegated this season are tumbling fast and for good reason. Seven defeats on the trot is a dismal run for a team tipped to land a top half finish and with Henk Veerman moved on to pastures new in January, De Superfriezen have looked completely devoid of cutting edge in the final third.
