FC Groningen vs Heracles
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 19th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Euroborg (Groningen).
Almelo took quite a hit in the last month, as they lost three of their five league games. The team really could have been vying for a podium finish, and instead is trying to get a hold of the consolation spots.
The Green-White Army is playing with fire as they refuse to get good results out of their chances. They have 15 points as of now and is above the relegation line by virtue of their goal difference.
But as football has taught us several times in the past, if it can go wrong, it definitely will, now or later. It’s just a question of when.
The team needs to start getting serious. They have several tough fixtures in the recent weeks. But if previous games and attitude are any indications, the chance for things to get better is bleak.

FC Groningen vs Heracles Prediction
Frank Wormuth’s men will unleash all their strength at the group of players that had the misfortune to stumble in front of the wounded animal, that is Heraclieden.
After a disappointing month hurting in their back of the heads, the team needs a rejuvenation. What better way than to demolish a struggling team that accumulated five winless games in their last five match-days.
Back a win for the guests. Expect the team from Almelo to get on the scorecard early, and before their rivals.
Though the odds are stacked against the Pride of the North, they have always performed well against this opponent, especially on the offensive front.
I expect the team to lose the tie, but not without finding the back of the opposite net at least once. They have done so in 12 of their last 13 attempts against Frank Wormuth’s men, at the Euroborg.
