Draw

Excelsior are clearly the team with a lot of momentum coming into the game. It will take a great deal of effort from Heracles to get anything out of this match, as the team has been suffering from a bout of poor results that have taken a hit on their confidence levels. Excelsior are likely to make a huge advantage of their own supporters. The game is likely to be treaded carefully by both teams.

Total goals under 2.5

There have been more than 2.5 goals in a string of games involving Excelsior. However, there is a lot at stake in this game and both teams would not be in a mood to throw away the fixture in the first leg. This may lead to a cautious approach that will dampen the goals in this game.

Both teams to score – yes

Heracles might be down on confidence and recent form, but they have a better squad than the opposition. This will have a big impact as the home team tries to continue their good form in front of goal. At the same time, Heracles will get opportunities to score on their own.

Excelsior vs Heracles: Match Preview and Team News

Excelsior

Excelsior are likely to count heavily on home advantage in the first leg. After all, Marinus Dijkhuizen’s team has never lost at the hands of Heracles in two meetings. Excelsior, though, have not been in the Dutch top division for three seasons. They are likely to be cautious in the opening few minutes of this game.

Heracles

Heracles are fighting to stay in the division after a horrible run so far. The away games have not brought much joy to the team. René Kolmschot is also out of contract in a few weeks and the uncertainty surrounding his future has added to the club’s woes.
