NEC to Win

NEC’s clash with Heerenveen on Saturday pits two clubs at the opposite end of the form spectrum against each other in Nijmegen and we recommend siding with the red-hot hosts. NEC have climbed up to 7th spot in the Eredivisie thanks to a run of three wins in four, while Heerenveen are on the slide after a rotten run of five defeats in six assignments. With momentum on their side, we’re tipping NEC to keep the misery coming for De Superfriezen.

Both Teams to Score

Heerenveen’s results have been worryingly subpar of late, though they have at least retained some of their goalscoring threat. Consolation goals have been the order of the day for De Superfriezen and both teams hit the net in five of their last seven Eredivisie fixtures as a result. The same market holds plenty of appeal for Saturday’s encounter with an NEC team that traded blows with their opponents in four of their last seven games.

Over 1.5 NEC Team Goals

Heerenveen have conceded twice in three of their last four league tussles and their habit for shipping in multiples makes NEC an interesting prospect in the over 1.5 team goals market this weekend. NEC have plundered an impressive 11 goals in their last five Eredivisie outings and having hit the net three times in their last home contest against Groningen, they should have the confidence to push forward against struggling Heerenveen in Nijmegen.

NEC vs Heerenveen: Match Preview

NEC team news

NEC could be without Joep van der Sluijs, Pedro Ruiz, Mikkel Duelund, Mathias de Wolf and Rens Van Eijden this weekend. Rogier Meijer’s charges thumped Groningen 3-0 in their last league test in what was arguably their most convincing display of the campaign to date.

Heerenveen team news

Ibrahim Dresevic was sent off in Heerenveen’s 2-1 reverse at home to Vitesse last time out and the defender is suspended this weekend as a result. Fellow defenders Erwin Mulder and Pawel Bochniewicz are a doubt and a confirmed absentee respectively. Heerenveen’s dreadful run of five defeats in six league matches has them in freefall and another loss on Saturday could move them to within a point of the drop zone.
