Heracles vs Utrecht
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 29 April 2018
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK
Venue: Polman Stadion (Almelo).
The tough schedule is about to be continued for Heracles on Sunday when they host Utrecht in the last hone match of the season. Thy did manage to end the three-loss streak last time out thanks to a last-gasp brace from Jamiro who notched two goals in the stoppage-time of the away match against Excelsior.
These were team’s first goals in three matches. Such result instilled some confidence into John Stegeman’s players who should really be able to improve the attacking record and find goals past the struggling defensive line of Utrecht’s.
The visitors play ultra-attacking football under Jean-Paul de Jong, which is why nine of their last ten league outings saw both teams netting. Utrecht are particularly easy to break down on travels as they shipped 11 goals in last four Eredivisie matches on the road (almost three per game).
Heracles vs Utrecht: Head-to-head
Draw happened on 11 occasions in 27 head to head affairs and is the most common result in matches between Heracles and Utrecht.
Trips to Almelo did not go very well for Utrecht in the history as they won just one of 13 away fixtures with Heracles.
This term’s encounter saw teams share spoils in a 1-1 draw at Stadion Galgenwaard.
Heracles vs Utrecht: Prediction
Heraclieden are winless in last five matches in Eredivisie which kind of describes the 3.60 odds offered for their win. Nonetheless, if we know that Utrecht won only 1 of 13 matches at Polman Stadion, we do find the value in backing the hosts not to lose at 1.90.
Given Utrecht’s playing style, both teams to score should really be a banker bet, though you’ll hardly get rich with the 1.44 odds offered for such option. Also, knowing that Utrecht conceded 11 goals in last four games on the road, we will take Heracles to score two or more goals at 2.25.
