NEC road form has been good in recent weeks. They stole a 1-0 away win against Willem II and then held on for a draw against Roda JC. In general, it's difficult to take issue with this club's start to their Dutch Eredivisie campaign, their goal, after all, is top flight survival. They've enjoyed success on the road by shutting up shop and sorting out their defensive set-up. After giving up six goals in two games against Ajax and Heracles, NEC has kept two straight clean sheets. Still, coming home can put additional pressure on a team with more impetus on them to take control of the game and to try and score goals. It hasn't been an easy follow up campaign for Heerenveen after they put together an all-round impressive season in 2014-15. They did hold PSV to a draw at home, and have taken just the one loss (last weekend) 3-1 to Groningen. They've been guilty of conceding goals, but they also always look like a threat to score. Heerenveen aren't an easy team to get a read on, but still like them to match preseason expectations and finish somewhere in the top seven or eight teams in the Eredivisie.
