FC Twente vs Heracles Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

FC Twente will be looking to put their Eredivisie campaign back on track when they welcome Heracles at the De Grolsch Veste on Friday evening. FC Twente suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat on the road at FC Groningen last weekend, despite the fact they had 16 goalscoring opportunities and five shots on target. On the other hand, Heracles fought back from one-goal down to secure a 2-1 home win over Roda JC Kerkrade thanks to two second-half goals from Robin Propper and Vincent Vermeij. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Heracles have enjoyed a better run of form than Twente recently, but the hosts hold an impressive head-to-head home record. Twente have won ten of their twelve home meetings with Heracles in the Eredivisie, losing just once in the process. Furthermore, Heracles have scored at least two goals in ten of these twelve home fixtures against Heracles. I’m backing Twente to get all three points here, but I’m also expecting Heracles to get on the scoresheet.

FC Twente Preview

FC Twente are one of the worst teams in the Eredivisie at the moment in time as they have lost five of their opening six league games. They picked up a comfortable 4-0 home win over FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie a fortnight ago and followed this up with a 1-3 away victory at ONS Sneek in the KNVB Beker Cup last week. However, their two-game winning streak ended last weekend as they were beaten 1-0 on the road at FC Groningen. At home, Twente were on a six-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their 4-0 win over FC Utrecht in their most recent home fixture. Twente currently sit only in 16th spot in the Eredivisie table tied on three points with the 17th-placed Willem II, just two points behind safety. Scoring has been Twente’s main issue throughout this early part of the campaign as they only netted six goals in six league appearances. Tom Boere has been Twente’s most prolific player in front of goal so far this season, helping the team with two goals and one assist in his five league appearances. Twente should feel confident ahead of this tie as they have won their last five home meetings with Heracles in the Eredivisie, scoring 13 goals and conceding just three in the process.

FC Twente Team News

Danny Holla is the only doubtful player for Twente ahead of this clash.

Heracles Preview

Heracles’ form in this early part of this 2017/18 competitive season has been a complete mixed bag with three wins, two defeats and two draws in their seven competitive fixtures. They were winless in four Eredivisie games prior to their 2-1 home victory over Roda JC Kerkrade last weekend. Sandwiched in-between these results, Heracles have also managed a 0-2 away victory at Rijnsburgse in the KNVB Beker Cup. The Almelo-based club have been involved in high-scoring affairs of late, as five of their last six competitive games have seen more than three goals scored. Heracles find themselves in 10th position in the Eredivisie table tied on eight points with the 11th-placed FC Groningen, just one point behind the top seven. The most worrying fact is that Heracles have failed to win a single Eredivisie game on the road so far this season, but at least they got on the scoresheet in both of their two league trips. Furthermore, Heracles have only picked up one victory in their twelve visits to the De Grolsch Veste. In addition, Heracles have failed to score in seven of those twelve visits. Brandley Kuwas and Reuven Niemeijer have been Heracles’ most dangerous players in front of goal so far this season, as the pair bagged four goals and three assists between them.

Heracles Team News

Brandley Kuwas, Bart van Hintum and Sebastian Jakubiak are all doubts.
