1-0 - Lost
Heerenveen have been in a bad shape lately, losing many matches, which escalated in the last round with the loss to Ajax 5:1. They have allowed way too many goals in these last games, but let's face it, those were away games. Heerenveen are generally known as clear home team, and they've proven that this season, too. The hosts lost here only to Ajax, Feyenoord, and AZ, two best teams in the leagues and one very good team. They played very well against Sparta in their last home game, winning 3:0, and that is a way they should play in front of their fans. On top of that, they are very close to the 7th place and EL playoffs, and I believe the players are aware of the situation. The games of Heerenveen are very, very efficient, which is a common thing about them, and there have been 3.3 goals per average in their matches, while 23 from all 31 ended with at least 3 goals.
Willem II are currently on the safe 11th place with 36 points, far away from both playoffs and relegation zone, so they can "relax" and play without some big pressure and motivation. They probably solved everything in the last round with the very much needed win over the terrible Go Ahead Eagles 2:0. They are not the best away side, with the score 4-4-7, 12 goals scored and 20 allowed, and their away form hasn't been the best lately.
The duels between these two side have been packed with goals, asonly 1 from their last 14 duels has seen less than 3 goals, which is fenomenal. I think we can expect goals, and with Heerenveen being a very good home side and still competing for Europe, I see them taking all 3 points in this entertaining game. Good luck!
