Heerenveen and Twente face each other in a highly-anticipated Eredivisie clash at Abe Lenstra Stadion. Heerenveen aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Willem II, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Friday’s clash. USA international Llanez remains in the recovery room, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
In their last home game in the Dutch top flight, Heerenveen defeated Den Haag 3-0, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Twente. The Reds experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss at AZ Alkmaar, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the home side. It has to be noted that the likes of Cerny, Hilgers, and Pleguezuelo are likely to miss Friday’s game through injuries.
All eyes will be on Luminus Arena when Genk and Standard Liege face each other in the Jupiler League derby. Genk are eyeing their third consecutive win in the Belgian top flight, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Onuachu, who has netted 25 goals in the Jupiler League so far this season. Ou should know that Genk are eyeing their ninth home win of the season.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, are on a three-match losing run in the Belgian top flight. Standard Liege suffered a dip in form, and seeing that Genk are only two points behind second-place Antwerp, home win should be considered. John van den Brom should have a full squad to choose from, while Morocco international Amallah is back from suspension for the visitors.
