Despite the fact that Heerenveen have won just one of their last five Eredivisie games (W1, D1, L3), they could go level with Twente - and provisionally cut the gap to the play-offs to one point - with victory here.
Heerenveen possess an identical W/D/L record to this stage of their last two seasons and will maintain synchronicity with 2018/19 with victory here.
The hosts are unbeaten in five home league games (W3, D2), while they possess a 50% win rate as home league favourites (W4, D2, L2).
Expect a fast start regardless of the result, as just one of Heerenveen's 12 home league games played so far has produced a goalless first half, of which two-thirds (eight) saw a matching HT/FT result.
Visitors Twente self-destructed last time out, as they scored two own goals, in what was only the second ever Eredivisie game to feature three own-goals. As if the embarrassment factor wasn't enough, that defeat extended Twente's poor run of form to one win in 11 league games (WI, D6, L4).
