Last match of round number 12 of the Eredivisie will be played between Utrecht and Heerenveen. It is scheduled to begin Sunday at 17:30 on Gangelwaard arena.
Utrecht is in a dangerous area, ranked 15th, with 12 points, just two more than the first position leading to the dam. At midweek, coached by Jan Wouters was tormented in the Dutch Cup with a team of Division III, winning 2-1 at the end of 90 minutes table showing the score 1-1. In the last round of the championship, Utrecht lost with the score 1-3, although still opened the score in minute 10. At home, however, hosts Sunday is doing pretty well for a band that strives to relegation, winning 3 matches, obtaining two draws in the 5 stages of the championship. Besides Sarota, Duplan and Janssen, this week a new player was injured for the hosts. It’s about Martensson, who has little chance to enter the match on Sunday. The hosts are excellent aerial duels, which is their most dangerous weapon. Therefore, we believe that Utrecht will try to get as many corners or free kicks in this game.
Heerenveen is also not far from the bottom of the table positions. Coached by the legendary Marco van Basten 10th place with 15 points but with a game less than the other teams. At midweek, Heerenveen took the match in the third round of the Dutch Cup, going to the limit, 1-0 by VVV Venlo. In the previous two stages, Heerenveen was narrowly defeated by 2-3 in the match at home against Vitesse and 1-2 last week, traveling to Nijmegen. Kruiswijk and van der Berg could be used in Sunday’s game, after a period of absence.
Last season, Utrecht defeated at home 2-1 by Heerenveen hosts opening score since the first 10 minutes of the game. And two seasons ago. ,, Farmers’ Gangelwaard were defeated by a score of 1-3. Centralia this match is Jochem Kamphuis, who refereed a once in Utrecht this season, then giving them two yellow cards. In the last match of Eredivisie however, 7 times Kamphuis showed the yellow card and once the red.
