Utrecht vs Heerenveen Prediction & Betting tips
With Utrecht and Heerenveen, two undefeated teams from the Eredivisie meet. However, the guests have already played and won three games instead of just two. Thanks to the great run, Heerenveen is at the top of the table together with Ajax Amsterdam.
The home side therefore has to adjust to an opponent with a broad chest. From their point of view, however, a test match from August, which was clearly won 4-1, can be encouraging. For the upcoming match at the Galgenwaard stadium between Utrecht and Heerenveen, the tip is aimed at both meeting and more than two goals.
The red and whites took the ungrateful sixth place in the early termination of last season in the Eredivisie. As a result, participation in qualifying for the Europa League was just missed. Coach John van den Brom’s team can therefore fully concentrate on their national tasks.
After an unfortunate draw in the clearly dominated opening game at Venlo, the first win of the new season was achieved last weekend. The RKC Waalwijk was defeated 3-1. A success that was not undeserved, but one goal too high in view of the proportion of the game and the chances.
Basically, the club from the fourth largest city in the Netherlands was able to hold the squad together as much as possible, which is why there should not be any major teething problems at the beginning of the season. This is also supported by the fact that, with the exception of the injured Willem Janssen in midfield, the entire squad is available at Utrecht.
The “Super Frisians” put in a disastrous preparation phase: All six test matches ended in bankruptcy. But apparently the games still provided enough useful impressions for coach Johnny Jansen, because the season opener has been going well so far with consistently wins in the first three rounds of the game.
The squad was also strengthened last summer. For example, the German U19 international Oliver Batista Meier is now on board. The newcomer from Bayern Munich 2, the champions of the 3rd division, has already successfully introduced himself with a goal against Fortuna Sittard on matchday two.
This also applies to the other newcomer in the storm in the person of Henk Veerman. The giant, over two meters tall, previously played at St. Pauli in the second division and also scored in the game he won against Sittard. Veerman is not that new, however, as he was already under contract with the 2000 runner-up before joining the Kiezkickers.
With his namesake Joey Veerman, Heerenveen also has a strong offensive player. The 21-year-old scored on the last two match days. In view of the strong performance in the game forward so far, the odds for at least two hits of the guests are provided with value at Utrecht against Heerenveen.
