Heerenveen are on the rise in the table after winning three of their last four league games. They are now up to 10th in the table, only six points behind Heracles in the last Europa League Qualifiying spot. Strangely enough they have played a lot better away from home this season (6-4-3) and really need to improve their home form if they are to make it into Europe next season. We believe today is an excellent opportunity to do just that when they welcome lowly Excelsior to Abe Lenstra Stadium.
Heerenveen have a fully fit squad and are eager to redeem themselves after an embarrasing 0-3 home defeat to De Graafschap last week. Top scorer Sam Lammers has score five goals in his last four games and could be the deciding factor tonight.
Excelsior are down to 15th in the table and are really struggling at the moment. They haven’t scored a single goal in their last four league outings and have lost five of their last six games away from home. In fact, they have only two wins in 12 league games on the road, scoring only 11 goals while conceding 28.
The visitors will be without defender Robin Van der Meer but have otherwise a fully fit squad.
