Twente vs Heracles
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Friday, 20 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: De Grolsch Veste (Enschede).
Although the newly-promoted side have got off to an unbeaten start, it needs saying that the hosts have come out on top in just half of their six games so far. Following two frustrating draws, Twente picked up all three points in their last home match which saw them take down Utrecht by a 3-1 scoreline.
On the road, the home team featured alongside Sittard in a five-goal thriller that ultimately saw the hosts walk away with a 3-2 victory.
Despite the initial stutter, Heracles have got things going for them with back to back wins in their most recent matches. The away side posted a narrow 2-1 victory over Groningen in their last outing while at home they thrashed Willem II with a massive 4-1 scorecard.
Although the visitors have been showing promise, taking down Twente who are on a two-match winning streak of their own at the moment, is just too a herculean a task to pull off, especially in their own backyard.
Twente vs Heracles Head to head (h2h)
- Three of their last five fixtures have seen Twente secure the bragging rights.

- Only two of their last five games here have seen both teams find the back of the net together.
- Heracles have not kept a clean sheet in their last ten visits here.
Twente vs Heracles Prediction
The home team have already forced the runners up of last season to share the spoils with them and are certainly sizing up to be a very tough team to take down.
The squad are not showing any signs of slowing down at home either and have already scored seven goals to their name from their previous three games here. Additionally, Heracles have not been faring well in their previous visits to this stadium and have just two wins to boast of from their last thirteen trips here.
Although Twente are the clear favorites judging by their previous head to head stats, it is worth mentioning that two of the last three games for the hosts on home soil have seen them salvage not more than a point.
So the safest punt to back would have to be a double chance, as Heracles have absolutely no chance of causing an upset.
Furthermore, five of the last seven goals at home for Twente and two of the previous three away goals for the visitors, have come in the latter forty-five minutes of the game. Given that their last three head to head clashes here have also goals post the restart, count on over 1.5 goals in the second half by all means.
