Heracles Prediction – Can Heracles gain first win?

Having lost 2 of their first 3 matches of the new Dutch top flight season and gaining just 1 point from these 3 league matches in the Eredivisie, Heracles face a tough task of getting something from this upcoming clash against Vitesse, despite holding home advantage.

Early defeats to Heerenveen 4-0 and last weekend’s 2-0 loss to PSV have been either side of a point in a 1-1 draw away at Fortuna Sittard, but both of the aforementioned defeats were inflicted upon Heracles on home turf at their Stadion Erve Asito.

The early signs therefore are not good for the hosts who have now failed to win any of their last 8 matches in the Eredivisie, a poor sequence of results which includes 7 defeats – 4 of which have been in their own backyard.

Indeed, Heracles have lost their last 4 home matches on the trot, and the manner in which they’ve suffered these defeats is very worrying if you’re a Heracles fan; the hosts have scored 4 goals and conceded a total of 13 goals against during this lean period.

Vitesse Prediction – Can Vitesse maintain unbeaten start?

A solid point in a 2-2 draw at home with Ajax on the opening day of this new Eredivisie season marked the platform for Vitesse to build from as the visitors have subsequently posted back-to-back wins in the Dutch top flight.

Recent victories against Willem II 2-0 away from home and last weekend’s 3-0 romp on home turf at their GelreDome against PEC Zwolle mean that Vitesse not only bring a 3-match unbeaten start to this season with them here, but also a winning momentum.

Results overall for Vitesse have been looking up in recent times as the visitors have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 6 matches, which was a 2-0 loss at home to Utrecht towards the end of last season, and although results away from home have been mixed, Vitesse have a great chance of getting something from this trip to Heracles today.

Vitesse are unbeaten though in their last 6 matches overall in all competitions, which consists of 3 wins and 3 draws, so they should at least avoid defeat at Heracles this Saturday evening.


Key-Facts – Heracles v Vitesse

  • Heracles have lost their last 4 home matches on the trot in the Eredivisie
  • Vitesse are unbeaten in their last 6 matches in all competitions
  • Heracles have won just 1 of the last 6 meetings against Vitesse, 3-2 last season


Betting Tips Verdict

Heracles have made a poor start to this season and may struggle against Vitesse who should at least avoid defeat here.
