Zwolle vs Heerenveen Prediction & Betting tips
PEC Zwolle and SC Heerenveen have the honor to start a new Eredivisie season. Both teams will start a new year in good spirits. Who has the best papers?
Last season De Blauwvingers performed excellent in the first half of the competition. John van ‘t Schip, even the coach of Zwolle at the time, took points with his team for the winter break. PEC even stood in a meritorious third place for some time. After the Christmas and New Year’s break, however, PEC experienced a small collapse. From the sixteen games after the winter break, only eleven points were achieved. Remarkably enough, PEC managed to book a three point against the opponent of Friday – SC Heerenveen.
In the past few months, the necessary changes were made at PEC. So Mustafa Saymak, Philippe Sandler and Youness Mokhtar all left Zwolle. Only for the young Sandler did the blue-whites receive a transfer fee. Vito van Crooij and Clint Leemans came over from VVV Venlo, while the Zwollenaren also managed to capture some other talents. Most players still have to prove everything, but PEC is an ideal club to develop as a young player.
The club from Friesland had little joy on the field last year. The selection was too strong to really get caught up in the relegation zone, but the good news just kept up. The game of the Frisians was not good, and against a backdrop of less and less public interest in the Abe Lenstra Stadium, this caused a negative atmosphere around the club.
Jurgen Streppel was (at least in part) responsible for the malaise of the team by the club management. He had to clear the field. His replacement was Jan Olde Riekerink; a man who has more failures than success stories on his resume. In the summer, the selection also changed in various places. After a weeks-long transfer session, striker Henk Veerman is now on his way to the German town of Sankt Pauli.
