NAC Breda vs Heracles: Preview and Predictions

NAC Breda vs Heracles
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Wednesday, 7 February 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Rat Verlegh Stadion (Breda).

NAC Breda will be hoping to end the unpleasant run of three consecutive losses on Wednesday evening when they host another out-of-form opposition Heracles at Rat Verlegh Stadion. The hosts have had troubles finding the back of the net of late as they’ve notched only a single goal in last three ties.

Heracles’ visit should give opportunities for the hosts to bounce back and clinch important points in the relegation battle as the visitors have one of the league’s weakest defensive records so far in the season. Heraclieden have shipped eight goals in last four league ties and they will come into this winless in lats five matches in Eredivisie.

John Stegeman’s men have been particularly easy to break down on travels as they’ve leaked in three goals in each of last two away matches against VVV and Groningen. This will be the music to the ears of Manchester City’s loanee Thierry Ambrose who took his Eredivisie tally to seven goals netting Breda’s only goal in the 3-1 loss away at Ajax this weekend.

At home, NAC have generally produced well in the final third against less-known opponents as they’ve notched three goals against Excelsior and Utrecht each in recent outings at Rat Verlegh Stadion.
