Go Ahead Eagles Double Chance

Go Ahead Eagles are back in the Dutch top flight for the first time since 2017 and in what should be a carnival atmosphere at De Adelaarshorst on Friday evening, we’re tipping the hosts to avoid defeat in the double chance market. Heerenveen were notoriously poor on the road in the Eredivisie last term, winning just three times in 17 attempts away from home and Go Ahead Eagles can take advantage of their visitor’s persistent travel sickness.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams to score bettors found plenty of joy in Heerenveen’s away fixtures in 2020/21. A huge 13 of De Superfriezen’s 17 Eredivisie away contests produced goals at both ends and similar outcome is anticipated when they travel to Deventer this week. BTTS landed in 100% of Go Ahead Eagles pre-season home assignments and the factors suggest the same market could prove profitable again on Friday.

Over 2.5 Goals

Five of Heerenveen’s last six Eredivisie away games at the back end of last season delivered over 2.5 goals and we expect more excitement when Johnny Jansen’s take on a Go Ahead Eagles side keen to impress on matchday one of the new campaign. The hosts rattled home 15 goals in their final five home contests in 2020/21 and they possess enough punch in the final third to trade blows with Heerenveen this week.

Go Ahead Eagles vs Heerenveen: Match Preview

Go Ahead Eagles

Go Ahead Eagles handed ex-Netherlands youth team boss Kees van Wonderen his first primary club role last year and their faith in the talented coach was rewarded when they roared to automatic promotion from the Eerste Divisie. Go Ahead haven’t competed in Dutch football’s top tier since 2017 and after a busy summer in the transfer market, they look ready to cement their place there.

Heerenveen

Heerenveen finished in a disappointing 12th place last season – their joint-lowest ranking in the Eredivisie since 1994 – and coach Johnny Jansen will be under pressure from the outset of the 2021/22 season to mastermind a turnaround in fortunes at the club. Jansen’s efforts weren’t helped by a modest summer in terms of transfers however, with former AZ right-back Milan van Ewijk the only significant arrival. Winger Filip Stevanovic, who was brought in on loan from Man City, could also prove a useful acquisition.
