Heracles vs Fortuna Sittard
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Friday, 7 February 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Erve Asito (Almelo).
Considering the dismal form of Heracles, and the comparatively better run of Sittard, the chances are higher for Fortuna for a win. However, throughout the years, Heracles have performed phenomenally well against this opponent, and this raises the scope for the BTTS bet this match-day.

- Seven of the last eight wins went to Heracles.
- Seven of the previous ten clashes saw Sittard conceding three or more goals.
- The reverse fixture of this upcoming encounter had ended in a 1-1 draw.
- At this venue, the hosts are on a 100% unbeaten run, and it would have been a 100% winning run if not for a 0-0 draw in 2004.
- The last time these two met here, Heracles won 6-0.
Heracles vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
Heracles lost on the road the last match-day against Willem II, and the scoreline was 1-0. It was the fifth straight loss for the team, and with that, they maintained the 100% losing record in 2020.
Sittard battled hard for a win the prior game week at home. They had hosted Heerenveen, and recorded a 2-1 win, with the winner coming in the 74th minute. After a difficult start to their 2020, the team showed intensity to get back into form.
Sittard have lost all of their games in 2020, and have failed to score in all but one match. On the other hand, their counterparts have won their latest game, and were unbeaten in seven of their last nine overall match-ups. They are also on a two-fixture unbeaten run on the road (both of which were against tough teams).
As such, expect Fortuna Sittard to avoid a loss at the least this Friday. However, they have a single win against this opponent in the past two decades, and they are yet to win a fixture at this venue. They have also conceded thrice or more against Sittard in seven of the past ten encounters, and six alone in their latest visit to this venue.
Finally, Fortuna have conceded a total of 31 goals from their previous ten games on the road, while Heracles have scored 30 from their prior ten home appearances. By all means, expect the BTTS bet to bring huge returns this Friday.
