Heerenveen

  • It was déjà vu for NEC last weekend at home to Heracles; heading into the last five minutes of regular time with a lead, they conceded a late equaliser and were forced to settle for a draw.
  • It extends their winless run to ten games and means they’re the only Eredivisie side without a win this season.
  • Heerenveen also go into the game mystified how they didn’t win last time out – leading Vitesse 2-0, including another goal from the league’s top scorer Alfred Finnbogason, they managed to throw away all three points.
  • Unbeaten on their travels, so far this season, Heerenveen will be looking to bounce back – in the process inflicting another defeat on struggling NEC – and move to within a point of league leaders Twente, albeit having played one more game.
