The SC Heerenveen boss Kees van Wonderen doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match owing to a completely injury-free group to choose from. Tibor Halilovic is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We think that De Superfriezen should make use of the 5-3-2 system, handing starts to Andries Noppert, Sven van Beek, Pawel Bochniewicz, Joost van Aken, Milan van Ewijk, Rami Kaib, Antoine Colassin, Anas Tahiri, Simon Olsson, Amin Sarr and Sydney van Hooijdonk.
Team News: FC Twente
Due to a fully healthy group available to choose from, the FC Twente manager Ron Jans does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this match.
We’re of the thinking that De Tukkers will likely elect for a 4-2-3-1 lineup, choosing Lars Unnerstall, Joshua Brenet, Mees Hilgers, Robin Propper, Gijs Smal, Mathias Kjoeloe, Ramiz Zerrouki, Vaclav Cerny, Michel Vlap, Virgil Misidjan and R. van Wolfswinkel.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that FC Twente and SC Heerenveen may both struggle to make a breakthrough here.
We’ll see, but this could easily end up all-square. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a close game with a 0-0 scoreline at the end of the 90 minutes.
