Excelsior (W) – Heerenveen (W) Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 08:30

Heerenveen recorded a second consecutive loss again by 3-5 as a host in the last round against Heracles and this confirmed in total how weak they were in defense. Such matches serve for self-esteem and greater confidence in case of victory, which coaches know very well and try to impose on their team. Their only victory remains in the first round and they are now required to take advantage of this match with Excelsior, which is also not in good shape. Still, Heerenveen has no problems in attack and has scored in every match since the start of the season, which is important. Venlo. Excluding a 3-0 loss from NAC, Heerenveen have scored in all of their last 13 games. They have conceded 21 goals in their last 9 games and a minimum of 2 in each of them, with the exception of their fixture this season vs.

Both Heerenveen and Excelsior will be hoping that the international break has given them the required time to shake off those defeats and put a plan together that will see them return to winning ways on Saturday, but if the performances of both teams this season and their goal scoring ability are anything to go by then Heerenveen should win the game with relative ease. Heerenveen had 54% of the overall possession, more corners, and more shots at home to struggling De Graafschap, yet came away with nothing to show for their efforts as the visitors claimed a 3-0 victory. Excelsior can have no complaints about their defeat at home to Zwolle last time out, as the visitors had 54% of the possession, more corners, and far more shots during the ninety minutes and deserved their 2-0 win.

Something interesting for them is that they did not play a friendly match at home in the summer. Obviously, the position of Excelsior is similar to that of Heerenveen. Excelsior are still looking for their good shape, but its hard for them and is likely to fight for survival this season. They have the same goal difference and the same points as Heerenveen at the moment and from the last 8 home games of Excelsior, in 7 we saw BTTS + over 2.5 goals and in the other one they finished 1-1 a few weeks ago against Fortuna Sitard. Attacking football, many goals, not much thoughts of defense and big results.

marsson scored twice in the first half to see Excelsior lead Heracles 2-1 at half time in Almelo, but the hosts scored three times in eleven second half minutes to take what looked like a commanding 4-2 lead. Most expected PSV to win in Alkmaar and take the title race down to the wire, but an early second half goal from Til proved enough for AZ to claim A 1-0 win and hand Ajax the Eredivisie crown on a plate. The visitors began their comeback via a seventy-first minute goal from Mattheij and appeared to have rescued a point in the eighty-ninth minute when Eckert made it 4-4, only for marsson to complete his hat trick and win the game 5-4 in stoppage time.
