SC Heerenveen form and stats

4-2-2 is the win-draw-loss statistic for SC Heerenveen in their Eredivisie matches away. Heerenveen has recorded two wins in a row in their away matches and hold legitimate hopes of a third one.

The manager Jansen was unhappy after their last game, a Eredivisie match played at their home ground Abe Lenstra Stadion. Heerenveen suffered a 0-3 loss to Feyenoord (placed 3rd). It's probably bad news for Heerenveen that their keeper Mous managed seven saves in the Feyenoord game, but still couldn't hinder a loss. Mous (goalkeeper) was the best performer with a rating of 7.43. Mous stopped the opponent with seven saves.

Preceding that game was the away victory against SC Cambuur with the score of 2-1.

SC Heerenveen are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is zero wins, one draw and three defeats. From a total of four matches.

A new game in only three days for SC Heerenveen, the KNVB Beker home match versus Go Ahead Eagles. Busy days.

Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Heerenveen have scored 9 goals in 8 league games away. As opposed to that, SC Heerenveen have seen the ball go into their own net 8 times on the road.
