Heerenveen vs RKC Waalwijk Lineups, Preview, and Team Information

Heerenveen

It will be extremely hard for Heerenveen to replace the goalscoring output of Sydney van Hooijdonk who returned to Bologna when his loan deal with the Eredivisie team expired. He scored 26 goals in 54 appearances for Heerenveen and it is tough to see who can make a similar impact for the team this season. The player that was brought in to replace him is Ion Nicolaescu who came from Beitar Jerusalem. Sven van Beek is doubtful to start the match.

Potential lineup: Noppert, van Ottele, Bochniewicz, Kohlert, Hall, Olsson, Haye, Nunumete, Halilovic, Sahraoui, Nicolaescu.

RKC Waalwijk

The visiting team was happy with the way they finished the last season and is eager to continue similarly this time around. There wasn't any money spent or earned this summer regarding player transfers, most of the deals were on free-agent signings.

Potential lineup: Vaessen, Adewoye, Van den Buijs, Lutonda, Lelieveld, Roemeratoe, Felida, Oukili, El Harmazi, Kuijpers, Kramer.

Player to Watch: Osame Sahraoui

There are quite a few young players at Heerenveen this season and it is obvious that the club management changed the course in how they see the team developing in the future. One of the players that will be a part of that project is Osame Sahraoui. The 22-year-old Norwegian was brought in from Valerenga during the January transfer window, he didn't feature much in the first six months for the club making 19 appearances in limited minutes and scoring a single goal with six assists.

However, this season should be different as there will be more openings in the starting lineup for Sahraoui to make an impact. The young Norwegian scored 13 goals alongside 19 assists while playing in 91 games for Valerenga.
