Heracles vs Vitesse
Date: Saturday, 16 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Polman Stadion (Almelo).
Vitesse kept their fine spell of form going last weekend by holding Feyenoord to a 1-1 draw at GelreDome. They won three on the bounce in Eredivisie beforehand and currently occupy 5th place in the league ladder coming into Saturday’s away clash with 7th-placed Heracles.
The host generally left a strong impression in the first half of the season, but their form saw somewhat of a slide in the last couple of weeks. Frank Wormuth’s men took just one point from past two rounds against the likes of Utrecht (a 1-5 defeat) and Emmen (a 1-1 draw).
Heraclieden can rely on a fine home form ahead of this important fixture against top-half opposition. They won 8 and lost 4 of 12 home outings so far in the season. They saw off Ajax 1-0 on the home patch a month ago.
Heracles vs Vitesse: Head-to-head
Vitesse were the dominant force in the history of this match-up.
They lead the H2H tie by 9 wins ahead of 30th encounter with Heraclieden.
Vitas won three and drew two of last five encounters against Heracles.
The streak includes two wins in this season (a 4-0 victory in the league at home and a 0-2 win in cup on the road).
Heracles vs Vitesse: Prediction
Heracles do have a fine home record in this term of Eredivisie, but the last pair of their performances does not quite promise a pleasant evening to their fans here. On top of this, Vitesse were flying high attackingly of late and they’ve won last two head to head encounters from this season.
The away win thus has value at 2.20 odds, while you can alternatively back goals at both ends at the odds of 1.50. Vitas rarely keep their net untouched on travels. As the matter of fact, they’ve last done so back in October last year just against Heracles.
