SC Heerenveen vs Vitesse Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Vitesse will look to extend their impressive start to this Eredivisie campaign when they travel to the Abe Lenstra Stadion to take on SC Heerenveen on Sunday afternoon. SC Heerenveen threw away a one-goal lead following Stijn Schaars’ early goal to succumb to a 3-1 away defeat at FC Utrecht. Meanwhile, Vitesse fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-1 draw on the road at Heracles thanks to a late goal from Brian Linssen. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview. Feel free to visit our Bet of the day page to check our best daily tips.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Heerenveen should feel confident ahead of this game as their recent run of form has seen them lose just once in their last six games across all competitions. On the other hand, Vitesse have struggled for fluency recently, but they did well to score at least once in each of their last four competitive fixtures.

SC Heerenveen Preview

SC Heerenveen were on an eight-game unbeaten streak across all competitions prior to their back-to-back defeats at the hands of Ajax and FC Utrecht in their most recent two league fixtures. Heerenveen looked terrible at the back over the past three weeks, having conceded seven goals in their last two games in the Eredivisie. Despite the recent run of form, Heerenveen still sit 6th in the Eredivisie table with 14 points after eight rounds, just two points behind the second-placed Ajax. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Heerenveen’s main issue throughout this Eredivisie campaign, as they hold the worst defensive record in top seven with 14 goals conceded in eight league fixtures. At home, Heerenveen were on a five-game unbeaten streak across all competitions prior to their 0-4 loss against Ajax in their most recent home league fixture. Furthermore, Heerenveen are undefeated in their last four home meetings with Vitesse in the Eredivisie, scoring at least two goals in two of these. Morten Thorsby has been the standout player throughout this Eredivisie campaign, helping the team with four goals and one assist in his eight league appearances.

SC Heerenveen Team News

Warner Hahn and Arber Zeneli are both doubts ahead of this clash.

Vitesse Preview

Meanwhile, Vitesse have endured a mixed run of form over the past month, registering two wins, four draws and three defeats in their last nine competitive fixtures. They are currently on a three-game unbeaten run in the Eredivisie, but sandwiched in-between these league outings, they suffered a 3-0 defeat at Nice and a 1-1 away draw at Waregem in the Europa League. The Arnheim-based club find themselves in an unexpected 4th position in the Eredivisie table tied on 15 points with the 5th-placed PEC Zwolle, just one point behind the second-placed Ajax. Vitesse have been scoring goals for fun throughout this Eredivisie campaign, netting 16 goals in eight rounds. Tim Matavz has enjoyed an excellent start to the season as he is currently the team’s topscorer with five goals in his eight league appearances. Away from home, Vitesse have only won once in their last five games across all competitions and are currently on a three-game winless streak. The good news is that Vitesse hold an impeccable head-to-head record over Heerenveen, winning three and drawing three of the last six meetings between them.

Vitesse Team News

Arnold Kruiswijk, Maikel van der Werff, Navarone Foor and Tim Matavz are all doubts ahead of this trip.
