Heerenveen vs Groningen Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in Dutch Eredivisie on Sunday, 22 January 2023.
Heerenveen have been consistent throughout the campaign, and particularly after the World Cup break. They are going after an entry into the top-seven of the table, and need a surplus of two points as things stand.
Meanwhile, Groningen are the only team to have a 100% losing record in the league in the last four game weeks, and are struggling to stay above the relegation cut-off.
Heerenveen recorded a 3-1 win in the latest h2h encounter, and they are also unbeaten in the past five years. They also recorded 17 of the previous 21 h2h wins at this ground to their name, and the last they ever lost such a clash was seven years back.
Heerenveen have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival, and particularly so at this ground. They are also in great form at the moment, and are at home.
On the other hand, Groningen are on a five-game losing streak, and they have just three wins to their name all through this campaign. And one of these victories even came against the dead-last placed Cambuur.

Meanwhile, Groningen are on a long series of losses, and have been very poor with their performances on the road.
