Heracles vs Excelsior – Predictions, Odds, & Best Betting Tips

Heracles and Excelsior played out in a very one-sided first leg match that finished as a 3-0 success for the latter. After a 21st minute goal for the home team through Azarkan, late second-half goals from Dallinga and Driouech has almost put the Eredivisie outfit on the verge of relegation.

Draw

A close contest was expected in the first leg between Excelsior and Heracles. However, the Eerste Divisie team were able to make the most of momentum and home advantage to get a comprehensive lead. The substantial lead will allow Excelsior to sit back and defend while Heracles had to come out with the guns blazing from the word go. This will present opportunities on the counter for the visitors.

Total goals under 2.5

There have been more than 2.5 goals in back-to-back games for Heracles, but it is largely down to the defensive fragilities. Heracles are likely to keep things open from the word go, as they will be chasing the game first whistle. Excelsior will have opportunities to pick off the opposition, but they may sit too deep. This will result in a game that has less than 2.5 goals.

Both teams to score – yes

Heracles will be chasing the game in order to have any chance of staying in the division. Excelsior might have kept a clean sheet in the first leg, but the same cannot be expected in an away match from the second division outfit.

Heracles vs Excelsior: Match Preview and Team News

Heracles

Heracles have lost four consecutive games to put them in a very bad spot going into the crucial second leg at the Erve Asito. It would take a remarkable comeback and performance from the team to come through from the situation. Heracles’ last comeback victory was in December against Groningen.

Excelsior

After having overcome Roda JC in the previous round, Excelsior are on the verge of success in the play-off game against Heracles. It would be a worthy outcome for the team which has displayed a lot of grit in the recent weeks. Excelsior have gone without a defeat since the first week of April.
