Heracles vs VVV-Venlo Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Heracles welcome Venlo at the Polman Stadion on Saturday afternoon, with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in the Eredivisie. Heracles suffered a 3-0 defeat on the road at PSV Eindhoven last time out, in a game in which their defender Robin Propper saw red in the stoppage time. On the flip side, Venlo lost 0-2 at home at the hands of ADO Den Haag, with Maurice Steijn’s men conceding both goals in the second half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview. Feel free to visit our Bet of the day page to check our best daily tips.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Heracles are undefeated in twelve home meetings with Venlo in the Eredivisie, but the visitors have been in splendid shape on the road throughout this competitive season. In addition, Venlo have kept a clean sheet in each of their most recent two away games across all competitions. It’s difficult to predict the winner here, but I’m fancying goals at both ends of the field.

Heracles Preview

Heracles have endured a mixed run of form throughout this 2017/18 competitive season, registering three wins, three draws and four defeats in their ten official fixtures. The Almelo-based club come into this clash on the back of a three-game winless streak in the Eredivisie, which includes a heavy 3-0 defeat at PSV Eindhoven at the weekend. This leaves Heracles only in 14th spot in the standings tied on nine points with other three teams, just two points clear of the bottom three. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Heracles’ main issue throughout this campaign as they hold the third worst defensive record in the division with 17 goals conceded in nine rounds. At the other end of the field, Heracles managed a decent tally of 12 goals so far this season, including three from their topscorer Paul Gladon. Brandley Kuwas has also played a vital part in Heracles’ performances throughout the season, helping the team with two goals and three assists in his six league appearances. At home, Heracles have only lost once in five home league fixtures, while scoring at least two goals in four of these. In addition, Heracles are undefeated in twelve home meetings with Venlo in the Eredivisie, keeping a clean sheet in seven of these.

Heracles Team News

Brahim Darri, Lerin Duarte and Sebastian Jakubiak are all doubts, but Robin Propper is missing through suspension.

VVV-Venlo Preview

The newcomers Venlo were on a six-game unbeaten streak across all competitions prior to their back-to-back defeats against PSV Eindhoven and ADO Den Haag in their most recent two league fixtures. Venlo have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net recently as they allowed seven goals in their last two games in the Eredivisie. The newcomers still sit comfortably in 10th spot in the standings with 12 points to their name after nine rounds, five points clear of the bottom three. The most interesting fact is that Venlo are undefeated in five away games across all competitions this season, scoring at least two goals in three of these. The bad news is that Venlo are winless in twelve away visits to the Polman Stadion. In addition, Venlo have only lost once in their last five meetings with Heracles, both home and away. Clint Leemans have been the standout player for Venlo in this early part of the season, helping the team with five goals in his nine league appearances. Vito van Crooy has also looked decent this season, contributing with two goals and two assists.

VVV-Venlo Team News

Jonathan Opoku and Tristan Dekker are both missing through injury, while Jerold Promes is suspended.
