Heerenveen welcomes newly-promoted Almere City to Abe Lenstra Stadion on Friday, aiming for their third consecutive victory this season. The hosts aspire for a top-half finish, while Almere City seeks to cement their place in the top tier.
Heerenveen’s recent form has seen them secure four wins from their last five games across all competitions, including a convincing 3-0 triumph over Fortuna Sittard in their previous Eredivisie fixture.
Despite a rocky start, Heerenveen is gradually climbing the league table.
Kees van Wonderen’s squad sits seventh in the Eredivisie standings, tallying 16 points from 13 matches. They aim to continue their climb, staying ahead of the teams behind them.
Newcomer Osame Sahraoui has been instrumental, leading Heerenveen’s goal-scoring chart with four goals this season.
Additionally, the club’s recruitment strategy aimed at bolstering the team with young talents seems to be paying off.
Almere City’s debut in Eredivisie seemed challenging initially, securing just one point from their first six matches.
However, they’ve displayed resilience lately, notably defeating Sparta Rotterdam but suffering a hefty 5-0 defeat against Heracles in their last match.
Almere City sits 13th in the standings, with a solid performance away from home, accumulating eight of their 13 league points on the road.
Despite recent setbacks, they aim to maintain their promising start in the top flight.

Almere City Eredivisie form:
Heerenveen will miss the services of Daniel Karlsbakk due to illness, while Pawel Bochniewicz remains sidelined due to a back injury.
Expect an unchanged backline from van Wonderen’s side following a rare clean sheet in their previous outing.
Almere City might shuffle their starting lineup after a heavy defeat, with players like Manel Royo and Rajiv van La Parra likely to be on the bench for this encounter.
Braude, Van Beek, Van Ottele, Kohlert;
Haye, Olsson, Nunnely, Brouwers, Sahraoui;
Jacobs, Van Bruggen, Soh;
De Kamp, Koopmeiners, Resink, Floranus, Pena;
Heerenveen has shown prowess in goal-scoring in their recent home games, which may continue against Almere City.
With the visitors’ confidence possibly shaken by their recent defeat, Heerenveen could secure a 3-1 victory at Abe Lenstra Stadion.
