Heerenveen vs Almere City Odds
Heerenveen Team News
Heerenveen is currently in seventh place on the table after 13 rounds played, with sixteen points. We believe that the fans of this club are not satisfied with the performance of their favorites, especially at the start of the championship, specifically in the first nine rounds. The host has only recorded five victories so far, three of which were in the last four rounds.
During this period, Heerenveen defeated Heracles 3:0, Vitesse 1:3, and Sittard 3:0, with their only defeat coming in a duel with Ajax, where they were convincingly defeated with a score of 4:1. The home team expects to continue their streak of good results in this round. Also, they are encouraged by the fact that they are facing a “newcomer” in the league and a team positioned in the lower part of the table. For this reason, anything other than a Heerenveen triumph on Friday night would be a significant surprise.
Almere City Team News
Almere City has qualified for the Eredivisie league for the first time, and after thirteen rounds, it is clear that they will have a challenging task to stay among the elite Dutch clubs for more than one season. Before this round, Almere is in 13th place with thirteen points, just one more than Utrecht, which is in the relegation zone. Additionally, with only twelve goals scored and 27 conceded, the visitors have one of the weakest attacks and the poorest defense in the Dutch championship.
After a disastrous start to the championship, Almere significantly improved their form, securing three victories (Utrecht 2:0, Waalwijk 1:0, and Sparta 1:2) in the last seven rounds, along with three draws and only one defeat, which came in the previous round against Heracles with a score of 0:5. It remains to be seen whether this setback has had a lasting impact on the visitors and if they will return to the rhythm from the previous matches in the game against Heerenveen.

Heerenveen vs Almere City Prediction
Heerenveen is a significant favorite in this match, and we expect them to continue their streak of good results from the previous four rounds (3 wins and 1 loss). Additionally, the home team tends to play matches with a high number of goals, and in the last six games involving this team, we have seen three or more goals. If we add to this the fact that Almere City has one of the weaker defenses in the Dutch championship, it is clear why we anticipate goals in this match as well.
