PEC Zwolle - Heerenveen

Netherlands Eredivisie - Mac3Park Stadion

Zwolle vs Heerenveen is not a fixture which will catch the headlines and with neither side pushing for European spots this campaign it's just a case of being best of the rest and trying to establish some pride, especially for Zwolle in front of their home fans.

Zwolle vs Heerenveen prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot tip – Both Teams To Score – Yes

  • Half of Heerenveen's away games have seen both teams score
  • Zwolle have been on fire in front of goal finding the back of the net 13 times in their past five matches.

This is a game which is putting two sides up against each other who are very evenly matched. Both will be eager to put on a show and let the country know they are pushing to be the best of the rest by smashing their opponents.

Latest odds

Win probability

Home: 17/10 (2.7) – 37%

Draw: 13/5 (3.6) – 27.8%

Away: 27/20 (2.35) – 42.6%

As expected, the bookmakers don't believe there is much to separate these two sides. Therefore, we believe backing the draw/draw option at 5/1 (6.0) could be sensible with a 16.7% chance of landing.

Elsewhere, you can go all in on the home side to win an entertaining battle with Zwolle and over 2.5 goals being available at respectable odds of 29/10 and the probability figures say this has a 25.6% chance of this bet coming in.

Player to watch – Ferdy Druijf

Ferdy Druijf has turned out to be an inspired loan signing for Zwolle. The Dutchman has seven goal involvements to his name in the Eredivisie including five goals and two assists.

The partnership he's been able to form alongside Lennart Thy is a big reason why Zwolle find themselves in the top half of the table and not fighting in a very tough relegation battle.

Druijf and Thy are the duo that make Zwolle favourites for this clash and could easily be the difference makers.
