Groningen to Win
Heracles finally ended their long wait for a first away win of the campaign when they beat struggling Fortuna 2-0 in Sittard earlier this month, though old habits could return for the Heraclidaen on Sunday. Groningen have looked strong at home of late, recording wins in three of their last five assignments at Euroborg and they can pad out their W column further against poor travellers Heracles, who have lost a galling 78% of their away fixtures since the summer.
Both Teams to Score
Groningen Head Coach Danny Buijs will be pleased at how many points his team have managed to collect at home in recent weeks, though he will still have concerns over his side’s defending and their lapses at the back could allow Heracles to nab a consolation on Sunday. Indeed, the Trots van het Noorden have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine matches, with both teams notching in six of the same games. Expect a similar outcome this weekend.
Jorgen Strand Larsen to Score Anytime
Jorgen Strand Larsen is finishing the campaign with a purple patch and the Norwegian attacker has scored three times in his last four appearances for Groningen. The 22-year-old also got his name on the scoresheet when he last played against Heracles in December’s reverse fixture and Larsen can add to his tally for the season against the same opponents on Sunday.
Groningen vs Heracles Match Preview and Team News
Tomas Suslov and Jan Hoekstra are expected to miss out this weekend through injury, while Radinio Balker is considered a doubt. Neraysho Kasanwirjo picked up a suspension triggering booking in Groningen’s 3-1 defeat at Heerenveen last time out and the defender will miss Sunday’s game as a result.
Kaj Sierhuis is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, though Heracles are also sweating on the availability of Orestis Kiomourtzoglou, Janis Blaswich, Rai Vloet and Ismail Azzaoui. Heracles are five points clear of the relegation play-off position in the Eredivisie, though they would like the extra insurance another win or two would provide before the season ends.
