ADO Den Haag are set to host Heerenveen on Saturday, with Ruud Brood's side hoping to put their 6-0 defeat to Sparta Rotterdam behind them as the new coach suffered a devastating loss during his first game in charge.
Meanwhile, Heerenveen have got their 2020-21 campaign off to an impressive start, conjuring up five victories in their opening nine games to leave themselves sixth place in the table.
Den Haag currently find themselves in the relegation playoff places, having secured just one win this season - a narrow 2-1 victory against VVV-Venlo back in early October.
Since then, they have only managed to pick up a single point, with their defensive record particularly worrying this season.
De Residentieclub have conceded 26 league goals already this campaign, with many of those coming in their latest 6-0 loss at the Het Kasteel.
An unlikely win against Heerenveen this weekend would be just their second of the season and could see them climb up to 15th, moving out of the danger zone in the process.
Without a doubt, De Superfriezen will be hoping to get their season back on track, having won just twice in their previous seven league fixtures.
The two sides last met back in February this year, with the match ending in a 2-2 draw. However, it is worth noting that Heerenveen hold the upper hand when it comes to the head-to-head record - winning eight matches out of a possible 19 over the last decade, compared to Den Haag's four victories.

Den Haag are still without Peet Bijen, with the defender currently nursing an ankle injury. Although the 25-year-old is likely to miss Saturday's game, he could return for the following match next month.
Heerenveen, on the other hand, will be without Dewaele - after the midfielder was handed a straight red in their previous game against Waalwijk.
ADO Den Haag possible starting lineup:
Koopmans; Van Ewijk, Del Fabro, Pinas, Faye; Goossens, Rigo, Elmkies; Catic, Arweiler, Bourard
Heerenveen possible starting lineup:
Mulder; Floranus, Van Hecke, Bochniewicz, Woudenberg; Kongolo, Veerman; Nygren, Batista Meier, Van Bergen; Veerman
We say: ADO Den Haag 1-3 Heerenveen
Despite their poor result against Waalwijk, Heerenveen should have enough quality to conjure up a comfortable victory against the hosts. However, both teams have been particularly vulnerable in defence, so expect a high-scoring game on Saturday.
