Heracles vs Vitesse Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Vitesse will look to close the gap at the top of the Eredivisie table when they travel to the Polman Stadion to take on Heracles on Sunday at lunchtime. Heracles suffered a 2-1 defeat on the road at FC Twente prior to the International break, with their consolation goal being scored by Paul Gladon. On the other hand, Vitesse fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-1 home draw against FC Utrecht last time out in the Eredivisie, with Mason Mount scoring the equaliser in the last 15 minutes of the game. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

We should be able to see goals here as Heracles netted two goals in each of their four home league fixtures, while scored at least two goals in each of their three league trips. In addition, four of the last five meetings between these two teams have seen goals at both ends of the field.

Heracles Preview

Heracles started this 2017/18 competitive season brightly with two draws and one victory in the opening three league fixtures, but their recent form hasn’t been great. The Almelo club were on a two-game winning streak across all competitions prior to their 2-1 defeat on the road at FC Twente last time out in the Eredivisie. They have failed to continue their strong form from last season and currently sit only in 11th spot in the standings tied on eight points with the 12th-placed FC Groningen, just three points clear of the bottom three. Even after the departure of their last season’s topscorer Samuel Armenteros, Heracles still managed to score a decent tally of eleven goals in seven league fixtures. Paul Gladon got on the scoresheet last time out in the Eredivisie and he is now the team’s topscorer with three goals under his belt after seven appearances. The good news is that Heracles looked solid on home soil in this early part of the campaign, having lost just once in four league fixtures. In addition, Heracles managed to score two goals in each of their home games in the Eredivisie so far. The worrying fact is that Heracles are winless in their last two home meetings with Vitesse in the Eredivisie, scoring just once in the process.

Heracles Team News

Bart van Hintum and Sebastian Jakubiak are both doubts ahead of this clash.

Vitesse Preview

Vitesse have struggled for consistency recently, and the bad news is that they have a difficult month ahead. They will take on Heracles on Sunday and this tie will be followed by meetings with Heerenveen and PSV Eindhoven along with two Europa League group fixtures. Their recent form has seen them lose 3-0 on the road at Nice in the Europa League towards the end of September and only drew 1-1 against Utrecht last time out in the Eredivisie. Overall, Vitesse have been in decent shape throughout this early part of the season and find themselves in third spot in the league table tied on 14 points with Zwolle and Heerenveen, just one point behind the second-placed Feyenoord. Their solid defence has been Vitesse’s secret for their good performance throughout this Eredivisie campaign, as they hold the second-best defensive record in the division with seven goals in seven rounds. Away from home, Vitesse have endured a mixed run of form over the past two months, registering three defeats and three wins in their last six games across all competitions. In addition, Vitesse are unbeaten in their two visits to the Polman Stadion, conceding just once in the process.

Vitesse Team News

Arnold Kruiswijk is the only doubtful player for Vitesse ahead of this trip.
