Willem II vs Heracles
Date: Sunday, 20 September 2020
Kick-Off at 13.30 UK
Venue: Koning Willem II Stadion, Tilburg.
The most pleasant surprise package from the previous Eredivisie season is Willem II. Team from Tilburg was 5th and earned the right to compete in Europa League qualifiers after a very long time. This weekend they are welcoming Heracles at home turf, searching for first points in the new season.
Visitors have won only two out of 13 away games last season, so it’s not a surprise to see such high 3.50 odds on them.
The only potential issue for the home team we see is fitness. Willem II have just returned from a short trip to Luxembourg where they faced Progres Niederkorn. The trip was more than successful.
Willem II vs Heracles Head-to-head
These two teams have faced 26 times in the past, and stats are heavily going in favour of Heracles. This squad has 15 victories over the opposition, while losing eight.
Good news for Willem II fans is that situation at this venue is a bit different – six wins, two draws, and five losses. The total number of goals scored in those encounters is 41, which averages around 3.15 per duel.
Hosts were victorious in five out of last six h2h meetings.
Willem II vs Heracles Prediction
Willem II have kept every single core player from their last season’s roster. When it comes to acquisitions, it’s worth mentioning the arrival of John Yeboah from Wolfsburg and Mike Tresor from NEC Nijmegen.
The premiere appearance in Eredivisie didn’t go so well – Tilburg got defeated on the road in Heerenveen 0-2 FT. Things looked so much smoother on Wednesday in Europa League though with 5-0 win against Progres. Evangelos Pavlidis was man of the match with two goals.
Heracles had a great time during the pre-season, beating Telstar and Utrecht with identical 4-0 result. Start of the new season saw them beat ADO Den Haag at home too, so they are obviously going to be a tough nut to crack. We fancy the 1.72 odds offered on away win or draw double chance.
