Feyenoord vs Heracles
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 18 February 2018
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK
Venue: Stadion Feijenoord (Rotterdam).
Feyenoord have had a dismal campaign in this term of Eredivisie and they will not be in position to defend the title given that the runaway leaders PSV are as many as 22 points above at the top of the standings at this stage. The Champions League football is also just an illusion looking at things from this perspective since the second-placed Ajax are 15 points adrift of the defending champions who can only fight for the third position and the place in UEFA Europa League.
The team led by Giovanni van Bronckhorst has seen the most recent slip up seven days ago when Vitesse picked up a 3-1 win over the champions. It was the third loss in last four league games on the road for Feyenoord.
Things do look much better in Rotterdam where Feyenoord have won six on the bounce I all competitions. The streak stared just against Heracles back in late-December when the hosts took a 3-1 win at De Kuip thanks to goals from Szteven Berghuis (a brace) and Sven van Beek.
The continuation of such impressive run in front of the home crowd should not come in question for Feyenoord given that they are up against one of the league’s worst travellers Heracles. John Stegeman’s men have lost eight and drawn two of last ten away matches in Eredivisie conceding as many as 12 goals on last three travels against the likes of VVV, Groningen and NAC Breda.
Feyenoord vs Heracles: Head-to-head
The head to head stats also entirely favour Feyenoord who have won 10 and lost just 1 one 13 home meetings with Heracles.
Feyenoord have won each of last four H2H matches between these two sides netting as many as ten goals in last three meetings with Heraclieden.
Four of last five H2H games have seen both teams on target.
Feyenoord vs Heracles: Prediction
The hosts should not have too many troubles continuing their fine trend in home matches against Heraclieden, but the standout bet is Feyenoord to win & BTTS ( a scenario which has happened in four of last five H2H games) since the hosts have proven to be quite vulnerable at the back recently.
Over 3.5 goals FT is a bet you should not make a mistake with, and you can back it at 1.83 odds.
