Heracles Almelo – sc Heerenveen had everything out of a 0-0 race, but the home team will take off with the three points: 1-0.
It became a competition to quickly forget for Heerenveen. Siem de Jong was back in the base, but had to be replaced before the rest due to an injury. Anyway, Johnny Jansens team was the lesser in Almelo. Heracles could have gotten a big head start early in the game.
The only goal of the match was made in the 88th minute by Delano Burgzorg, who scored this seasons 500th Eredivision goal. He was served by substitute Ahmed Kutucu, who passed Ibrahim Dresevic and then served Burgzorg.
Heracles thus takes an important step towards the left row. Frank Wormuths team is now eleventh. Heerenveen remains in eighth place, but can still be overtaken by Sparta and FC Utrecht.
