Heracles vs Vitesse
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Erve Asito, Almelo.

Vitesse have competed with all other title contenders so well in the opening two months of new Eredivisie campaign. However, their form suddenly declined and they spilled a lot of points in December 2020. The Vultures open the New Year with a rough away day to Erve Asito, where they are going to face Heracles.

Hosts have picked up great form in late 2020, winning six points in the last two appearances and making an escape from the relegation zone. The gap between them and Europa League spots is just huge, so it would be miraculous to make such comeback. In terms of the odds, visitors are warm favorites for the win, currently priced at 1.95.

Heracles vs Vitesse Prediction

Even though they have less points than Vitesse by double, we don’t think Heracles are going to lose this match. Squad struggled with injuries throughout whole 2020 season, and results have changed immediately when key players returned.

Heracles defeated Heerenveen and Groningen in late December, demonstrating fine form and excellent teamplay. A couple weeks before that they returned from Rotterdam with a point won against Feyenoord. Home win or draw is currently offered at solid 1.80 price.

As for the alternative bet, we are going to back both teams to score. Vitesse scored 10 and conceded nine times during their seven away days, while Heracles stepped up in this segment a lot. BTTS is offered at 1.70 odds.
