Emmen vs Heracles
Date: Sunday, 10 March 2019
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: De Oude Meerdijk (Emmen).
Emmen can clearly feel the strength of a higher division football at this stage of the season. They were not pulling up any trees in recent weeks as a three-loss thread kept them at a position which leads to relegation play-offs at the end of the season.
Dick Lukkien’s men still have a chance to turn a corner and escape the danger area as the safe zone is just one point away. However, their recent spell of form does not quite promises success here against Heracles who won three of last four league outings.
Emmen will face troubles to keep things quiet at the back when they come face to face with Heraclieden. The hosts were very easy to break down recently as they shipped nine goals during the mentioned three-loss thread.
Emmen vs Heracles: Head-to-head
Heracles lead the head to head tie by five wins coming into 27th encounter with Emmen.
These two sides did not play each other in a league affair in 13 years before this term’s 2-1 victory fro Heracles at Polman Stadion.
Emmen, however, have a positive record in home outings with Heracvlieden (7 wins and 5 losses in 12 matches).
Emmen vs Heracles: Prediction
The visitors played hot and cold throughout the entire season, but they still did well enough to be 7th in the league ladder after 24 rounds of the competition. The team led by German manager Frank Wormuth picked up three consecutive clean sheets in the league before falling 1-5 to Utrecht last weekend.
The winning thread started with a 1-0 victory over the likes of Ajax which makes the loss to Utrecht super hard to explain. The clash with Emmen should give a chance for Heracles to rebound, we would not quite bet on the visitors here knowing they only won 3 and lost 7 of 12 away matches in this term of Eredivisie.
Emmen might be super tough to break down, but don’t forget that they held reigning champions and current leaders PSV to a 2-2 draw before beating Den Haag 3-2 recently at home. The value is decent with Emmen to win at 3.20 odds.
