Heracles vs Groningen
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-Off at 15.30 UK
Venue: Erve Asito, Almelo.
Heracles and Groningen will open proceedings for an exciting Eredivisie Saturday as they are set to battle it out at Erve Asito.
Both sides have shown decent attacking form in their respective mid-week fixtures and we have reasons to expect an open game packed with goal-scoring chances at both ends.
The hosts will be hoping to complete a solid week after clinching four points in the last two league affairs. They picked up a big 1-0 win over Heerenveen seven days ago and got unlucky not to have claimed the full spoils on Tuesday evening away at PEC Zwolle.
Lucas Schoofs and Delano Burgzorg secured them a two-goal advantage at the half time, but Heraclieden failed to keep hold of it in the last 45 minutes. Groningen, on the other side, bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Vitesse by storming past bottom-half strugglers ADO Den Haag 3-0 on Tuesday.
Heracles vs Groningen Head-to-head
The visitors lead the head to head tie by six wins going into the landmark 40th clash against Heraclieden.
The latest set of H2H matches between the two sides does not quite suggest a goal fest since none of the last two encounters has produced two or more goals.
Heraclieden edged past Trots van het Noorden 0-1 in the reverse fixture played just more than a month ago at Hitachi Capital Mobility Stadium.
Heracles vs Groningen Prediction
Heracles took advantage of the schedule to pick up two consecutive clean sheets on the home patch against Emmen and Heerenveen.
However, we can hardly see them keeping a clean sheet against Groningen who have scored at least two goals in four of the last five league matches.
As we mentioned above, Danny Buijs’ troops bagged three goals in a demolishing home victory over ADO Den Haag on Tuesday night.
Both Teams To Score is by far the best betting option you can take for this match.
As for the winner, we see a big value in backing the draw at the sky-high 3.60 odds. We feel there will be little to separate the two outfits here.
