Heracles vs Roda JC Kerkrade Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Roda JC Kerkrade are still searching for the first victory of the new Eredivisie season when they travel to the Polman Stadion to take on Heracles on Saturday evening. Heracles suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat on the road at PEC Zwolle last weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Jamiro Monteiro. Meanwhile, Roda JC Kerkrade lost 1-3 at home against Willem II last time out in the Eredivisie, with Mikhael Rosheuvel scoring their only goal just before the break. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips - Match Odds

I’m confident that Heracles will get back to winning ways in this one as they have looked much better than Roda in this early part of the campaign. Although Heracles have only lost once in their three home league games so far this season, they have scored at least two goals in each of these and should be able to grab all three points in this one against a Roda side who hold the worst defensive record in the division.

Betting Prediction: Heracles to win at odds 4/6 with Bet365

Heracles v Roda JC Kerkrade - Correct score betting tips and odds

As I've already mentioned before, I’m fancying a home victory in this one and Heracles to win 2-1 look a good bet. They have scored two goals in each of their three home games in the Eredivisie this season, while Roda have allowed two goals in each of their last two away fixtures.

Correct Score prediction: Heracles to win 2-1 at odds 7/1 with Bet365

Heracles v Roda JC Kerkrade - Total Goals predictions and odds

I’m expecting a goal fest here as both teams have been terrible at the back in this early part of the campaign, conceding 24 goals between them. Heracles have netted six goals at home so far this season, while Roda have conceded eight goals in their three away games in the Eredivisie so far this season. Furthermore, Heracles’ last five home meetings with Roda across all competitions have seen more than three goals scored.

Total Goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals at 3/5 with Bet365

Heracles Preview

Heracles did well to beat Ajax 2-1 at home in the opening round of the new Eredivisie season, but they have failed to win a single game since then. The Almelo club come into this clash on the back of a four-game winless streak in the league, including a narrow 2-1 loss on the road at PEC Zwolle last weekend. They bounced back with a 0-2 away victory at Rijnsburgse in the KNVB Beker Cup in midweek, and they will look to build on that when they take on the lowly Roda JC Kerkrade on Saturday. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Heracles’ main issue of late, as they conceded at least two goals in each of their most recent three league fixtures. They hold one of the worst defensive records in the division with ten goals conceded in five rounds. At home, Heracles have endured a mixed run of form over the past nine months, registering six defeats, seven wins and two draws in their last 15 home games across all competitions. They have only won once in three league games so far this season, but the good news is they have scored two goals in each of these. The bad thing is that Heracles are winless in their last two home meetings with Roda JC Kerkrade in the Eredivisie, conceding seven goals in the process.

Heracles Team News

Sebastian Jakubiak and Brandley Kuwas are both doubts ahead of this game.

Roda JC Kerkrade Preview

Roda JC Kerkrade, on the other hand, are definitely the worst team in the Eredivisie at the moment as they have failed to pick up a single point in five rounds so far this season. Roda have suffered defeats in each of the opening five league games, conceding at least two goals in each of these. Actually, they hold the worst defensive record in the division with 14 goals conceded in five rounds. Roda are rock bottom of the Eredivisie table at the moment and they need to start collecting points if they are to survive in the Dutch top tier this season. Away from home, Roda JC Kerkrade have only won once in their last twelve games in the Eredivisie and have failed to score in six of these. The good news is that Roda are undefeated in their two visits to the Polman Stadion, scoring seven goals in this term. Head-to-head, Roda are unbeaten in their last four meetings with Heracles in the Eredivisie, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Simon Gustafson is the team’s top scorer at the moment with two goals under his belt in his five league appearances.

Roda JC Kerkrade Team News

Christiaan Kum and Ognjen Gnjatic are both doubts ahead of this trip.
