Heerenveen vs Excelsior Lineups, Team News, and Match Preview

Heerenveen

There is a concern among Heerenveen's supporters that their season could go toward a downward spiral rather fast if something doesn't change soon enough. Heerenveen has a positive h2h record against Excelsior and the team will feel they have a chance of taking the victory. Pawel Bochniewicz is injured while Charlie Webster will miss the game through suspension.

Potential lineup: Noppert, van Ottele, Kohlert, van Beek, Hall, Brouwers, Tahiri, Olsson, Sahraoui, Nunnely, Nicolaescu.

Excelsior

The Rotterdam outfit also started the season with a win but then had three draws and a loss. Still, they currently have a top ten standing in the Eredivisie. However, there are plenty of injury issues for the team: Kik Pierie, Adrian Fein, Lennard Hartjes, Couhaib Driouech, Jacky Donkor, Mike van Duinen, and Raphael Eyongo are all set to miss the match.

Potential lineup: van Gassel, Zagre, Nieuwpoort, Widell, Horemans, Baas, el Yaakoubi, Sandra, Agrafiotis, Lamprou, Fernandes.

Player to Watch: Osame Sahraoui

The 22-year-old wing player has transformed Heerenveen's attacking options. The talented Norwegian has scored three goals and delivered an assist in five games this campaign. Considering that Heerenveen scored nine goals, Sahraoui's stats are even more impressive, especially because he is not your regular striker.

Sahraoui has started his career at Valerenga where he spent four years before joining Heerenveen in the January transfer window. He already made his debut for Norway national team who are trying to earn a berth at the EURO2024 tournament next year. Sahraoui made a single appearance for his national squad.
