Heerenveen could move into the top three if results go their way in the Eredivisie this weekend. Read our top three expert predictions for Saturday’s fixture below.

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

Heerenveen to Win

Heerenveen threw away a lead in each of their last two Eredivisie fixtures against AZ (1-3) and Groningen (1-1), though we’re backing De Superfriezen to record their second home win on the bounce against Fortuna Sittard on Saturday. The visitors looked out of sorts in their last away test at Sparta (1-3) and they could struggle again against a stronger Heerenveen outfit.

Both Teams to Score

Remarkably, eight of the last nine encounters between Heerenveen and Fortuna Sittard produced goals at both ends and the same market could be worth pursuing when the teams renew acquaintances on Saturday. The clubs have secured just one clean sheet between them in seven Eredivisie matches combined, so expect both defences to concede again this weekend.

Henk Veerman to Score Anytime

Heerenveen games rarely pass by without a goal-scoring intervention from talismanic forward Henk Veerman and we’re tipping the prolific striker to make his mark again on Saturday. The 30-year-old has scored three times in his last three Eredivisie appearances and Veerman notched three times in two games against Fortuna Sittard last season.

Heerenveen vs Fortuna Sittard: Match Preview

Heerenveen team news

Pawel Bochniewicz, Rami Kaib, Rodney Kongolo and Anthony Musaba will sit Saturday’s game out with respective injuries. Head Coach Johnny Jansen will want an improved performance on last week’s poor showing at Groningen, where Heerenveen could only muster nine attempts to their host’s 15, despite having a man advantage for the final minutes of the game.

Fortuna Sittard team news

Fortuna boss Sjors Ultee could be without Arianit Ferati, Richie Musaba and Lisandro Semedo this weekend. Sittard will most likely continue with Mats Seuntjens as their most advanced player, though Toshio Lake is pushing hard to start. Fortuna were left chasing shadows against Sparta Rotterdam last week where they conceded a whopping 18 attempts despite enjoying the lion’s share of possession (56.8%).
