Willem II vs Heracles Match preview
Willem II has been aiming to get into the top three spots in the league. Another three points will certainly put them there if Feyenoord drops points in their next match. Also, a win with a good margin can also fancy Adrie Koster’s boys to be in the top three.
With their last ten matches in all the major contests being unbeaten, Willem II will be coming in hot at the Tilburg stadium against Heracles. Their previous loss in a major contest was in November 2019 against Groningen on the road.
The host had their previous league clash at home against Zwolle. Both teams failed to score a goal in the ninety minutes forcing the match to a goalless draw. It is their second goalless draw within the recent five fixtures.
Heracles have taken a dip in form in the league lately. They have lost their last three matches in a row giving away clean sheets in two of them. Also, they have marked only three wins in their last ten overall fixtures.
Their prior clash in the campaign at home against Feyenoord gave them a 2-3 defeat at home as they lost the lead in the second half of the game.
Another three points would move them one place ahead in the current league table. With their poor form, Frank Wormuth will not have many hopes in fancying their chances for the three points. However, the gaffer will be keen on working on their defensive faults and improving Heracle’s strikers in the game.
Willem II vs Heracles Prediction
The picture is pretty clear for the punters as we can expect a clear win probably by the host in the ninety minutes. With their league standings and home ground advantage, Willem II will be the best bet for the punters if they draw no bet upon the team.
Taking a look at Willem’s form at home will clarify the probability of the prediction. Willem has lost only one of their prior ten home matches across all major competitions.
After four consecutive wins at home, the Tricolores recorded two draws in the successive matches ahead. That is why we cannot favor the host to win completely in the full-time.
Besides, Heracles have been winless in their past seven away fixtures in the league with four losses and three draws in it. In addition to that, Heracles have lost their previous away game to the likes of FC Emmen with a 1-0 scoreline.
Frank Wormuth’s side has registered only two wins in their ten away games so far in the campaign. On the contrary, Willem II has tasted defeat only twice in the same period at home. As such, the home team has shown a better composure than the Heraclieden.
Hence, Willem has more chances of creating opportunities in the clash. Along with that, their last three h2h clashes held here have seen the teams combined to score at least four goals in the ninety minutes. So, there is a chance for the total score to be over 2.5 goals in the match.
