Heracles vs Feyenoord Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Heracles and Feyenoord will square off at the Polman Stadion on Saturday afternoon, with both teams looking to extend their unbeaten start to the new Eredivisie season. Heracles threw away a one-goal lead twice to settle for a 2-2 home draw against Excelsior last time out in the Eredivisie. Brandley Kuwas and Paul Gladon both got on the scoresheet for John Stegeman’s men. Meanwhile, Feyenoord won 5-0 at home over Willem II thanks to a brace from Jens Toornstra and three other goals from Steven Berghuis, Tonny Vilhena and Jean-Paul Boetius. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Feyenoord are hot favourites, but Heracles have also enjoyed a strong start to the season. Feyenoord are unbeaten in their last four meetings with Heracles in the Eredivisie, but the hosts managed to score at least once in two of these. I’m backing Heracles to get on the scoresheet here as they have scored at least once in 13 of their last 15 home games across all competitions.

Heracles Preview

Heracles kicked off the new Eredivisie season with an impressive 2-1 home win over Ajax and followed this up with a creditable 1-1 away draw at SC Heerenveen in the second round. They even had a one-goal lead twice against Excelsior a fortnight ago, but the visitors bounced back each time and had to settle for a 2-2 draw. During the International break, Heracles picked up a comfortable 6-0 victory over KVV Quick 20 in a friendly fixture. The Almelo club find themselves only 10th in the Eredivisie table tied on five points with 9th-placed SC Heerenveen, one point behind the top seven. At home, Heracles have been a decent side over the past seven months, having lost just two of their last nine Eredivisie home games. Heracles lost their most recent home meeting with Feyenoord, but prior to that, they were unbeaten in two games against the Rotterdammers. Actually, Heracles have scored at least once in seven of their last eight home meetings with Feyenoord across all competitions. Paul Gladon and Brandley Kuwas have been Heracles’ most dangerous players in front of goal in this early part of the campaign, as the pair bagged four goals and two assists between them.

Heracles Team News

Dario Van Den Buys is the only injury absentee for Heracles ahead of this clash.

Feyenoord Preview

Feyenoord, on the flip side, started their title defense in a great manner as they have picked up victories in each of their opening three league fixtures. They won narrowly against Twente and Excelsior in their first two league games, but they smashed Willem II 5-0 in their most recent Eredivisie fixture prior to the International break. The Rotterdammers sit at the top of the Eredivisie table tied on nine points with second-placed PSV Eindhoven, just two points clear of third-placed PEC Zwolle. Feyenoord looked incredibly strong at the back in this early part of the campaign as they hold the best defensive record in the division, conceding just once in three league games. At the other end of the field, Feyenoord have managed to find the back of the net on eight occasions so far this season, with Steven Berghuis, Jean-Paul Boetius and Jens Toornstra scoring two goals each. Feyenoord’s away form over the past six months has been a complete mixed bag with three defeats, three wins and one draw in their last seven away games in the Eredivisie. The good news is that Feyenoord are unbeaten in their last four meetings with Heracles in the Eredivisie, scoring at least two goals in three of these.

Feyenoord Team News

Kenneth Vermeer and Bart Nieuwkoop are both missing through injury, while Ridgeciano Haps is a doubt. The good news is that Sven van Beek is back in training.
