Utrecht vs Heracles
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 28 November 2021
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Galgenwaard.

The fourth-placed Utrecht have been the best in the Dutch top flight this season barring the three titans (Ajax, PSV, and Feyenoord). However, lately they have been on an inconsistent streak, and are being chased furiously by the fifth-placed Vitesse.

As such, they are in urgent need for a huge win, and it’s fortunate that they are pitted against the 13th placed Heracles, who have been one of the worst teams in the league – especially on the road.

Likely, expect a win for Utrecht this Sunday.
