Utrecht vs Heracles
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Galgenwaard (Utrecht).
Rene Hake’s appointment as Utrecht manager bought some change into the side. The host was unbeaten in six of seven league games when he started, but they have won just one of the following ten matches in their schedule this season. They will host after suffering a 1-0 loss on the road against Vitesse last time out.
Heracles has leveled their points with the host on the table with three wins in their recent four clashes. In their previous encounter, they had a massive 4-0 win at home against FC Emmen. They will visit on the back of that victory with improved morale of the players. But their manager Frank Wormuth has lost five of six h2h clashes with Utrecht.
Utrecht vs Heracles Head-to-head (h2h)
- None of their last six meetings have ended in a draw.
- Their previous encounter gave a 4-1 away win for Heracles.
- The host has recorded four of the last five overall wins.
- Both teams have scored in three of their recent five fixtures.
- The visitor has won only two of their previous ten meetings.
Utrecht vs Heracles Prediction
It has been a goal fiasco whenever these two sides meet in recent times. Only one of their last seven h2h meetings had seen lesser than 3 goals in a match. This shows that we can expect a high-scoring affair in ninety minutes. Also, both teams are likely to see the back of the net in the encounter.
So, the combined tip of over 2.5 goals and BTTS will probably be a suitable option from the goals department in the clash. At 2.00 odds, the tip is likely to yield decent returns for the punters. Besides, both teams have scoring averages above 1.0 goal in the league this season.
With their squad strength and ground advantage, Utrecht is closer to taking all three points. The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter. Also, the host has a better record in the h2h history between the two sides.
