Their opponents are currently sitting in the relegation zone but with solid team spirits after beating Willem II in five-goals thriller match last weekend. Judging by the odds, Heracles have much bigger chance to claim all three points in Almelo, as they are currently priced at 1.72 odds. Fortuna have zero victories away from home this season.

Heracles vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
Heracles ended the previous Eredivisie campaign in solid 9th place. Considering the fact their roster hasn’t changed much, it’s fair to say they are underperforming in the new season heavily. Poor efficiency is one of the main reasons for poor standings, as team bagged only 11 goals in 11 games.
Coach Frank Wormuth can’t be satisfied with current form of his strikers. The only player who offered good consistency is Rai Vloet who scored seven goals. This squad definitely has the quality to be in upper part of the table, so we will back them to win Friday’s clash and start the recovery. Fortuna Sittard were 16th in the last season, and we predict them to fight another relegation battle in upcoming months.
