HEERENVEEN VS VENLO (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 23.04.2019

Undertaking the role of host for this mid-table clash, Heerenveen are the worst Eredivisie home side with just 15 points from as many games (W3, D6, L6). However, they are at least unbeaten in four of their last five games here, notching over half of their current points total in that period (W2, D2, L1).
Despite the fact that the last two matches here at the Abe Lenstra have produced under 1.5 total goals, the ground remains one of the Eredivisie’s most entertaining, producing (on average) 3.67 goals per match.
Meanwhile, Venlo have picked up just 35.14% of their league points away from home, while winning just one of their last 12 Eredivisie away matches (W1, D3, L8). Additionally, Venlo have never won in eight visits to Friesland in all competitions (D3, L5), conceding at least twice in six of those encounters.
Furthermore, Venlo have won just one of 17 all-time H2H encounters in all competitions (W1, D7, L9). Visiting manager Maurice Steijn is also winless in each of his last five H2Hs with Heerenveen (D3, L2), and has won just two of his nine prior engagements with today’s hosts.
Players to watch: Still in his first season at Heerenveen, Sam Lammers has now been directly involved in 20 Eredivisie goals after his strike last time out (15 goals, five assists).
Peniel Mlapa cemented himself as Venlo’s top-scorer with his 12th Eredivisie goal of the campaign last time out. He has scored in two of their last three away matches.
Stat attack: Heerenveen have conceded at least twice in 13 of their last 16 Eredivisie matches.
Almost two-thirds of Heerenveen’s conceded home goals have come after half-time (62.5%).
Venlo have been trailing 1-0 at half-time in almost half (seven) of their 15 away league matches.
