Heerenveen – Utrecht : 17th May 2017
The hosts looked like a debused team at the end of the regular season, recording no less than 7 defeats in the last 9 games. In fact, in 2017, Heerenveen was an unrecognized team. If in the first half of the season he managed to leave the unbeaten field in the clashes with PSV or Feyenoord, this year he managed only 4 victories in 18 games! Far too little for a team with European aspirations. On the other side, guests are at the opposite pole in terms of shape. With 7 wins in the last 8 stages, Utrecht finished fourth. The only defeat in this period came on Feyenoord’s field, score 0-2.
In the last direct encounter, Utrecht was forced to score at the score of 1-0. It was his second success in the last five straight games.
