Heerenveen or Draw

Heerenveen have started the new campaign with two wins from two and alongside their early-season confidence, the hosts should have the edge on AZ in terms of freshness on Sunday. Alkmaar were involved in a taxing European clash with Scottish giants Celtic in midweek and there could be a continental hangover to contend with when they visit the Abe Lenstra Stadion on Sunday. With those factors considered, Heerenveen look an excellent price in the double chance market.

Both Teams to Score

Heerenveen seem to be playing with a new attacking focus this season and with their new philosophy in effect, both teams scored in their pulsating 3-2 victory at home to RKC last week. We think there is a strong chance that BTTS will land again on Sunday, especially when you consider that three of the last four meetings between Heerenveen and AZ produced action at both ends.

Over 2.5 Goals

The host’s new forward-looking approach is certain to spawn a number of exciting fixtures this season and we expect Sunday’s clash to follow suit. Remarkably, eight of the last nine tussles between Heerenveen and AZ delivered a minimum of three goals and everything is in place for another white-knuckle fixture between the teams this weekend.

Heerenveen vs AZ: Match Preview

Heerenveen

Heerenveen have started the 2021/22 Eredivisie season in impressive fashion taking six points from the first six on offer thanks to wins over Go Ahead Eagles and RKC. Talismanic frontman Henk Veerman hit two of his team’s three goals last week and the in-form 30-year-old could be one to watch again against AZ.

AZ

AZ lost key attacking duo Calvin Stengs and Myron Boadu in the summer and they have looked a shadow of their former selves since. Alkmaar have scored just once themselves in their opening four competitive fixtures this term, with the second of their strikes an own goal from Celtic’s Carl Starfelt. With pivotal midfielder Teun Koopmeiners also angling for an exit before the transfer window shuts, AZ could be set for a season of regression this term.
