Heracles to Win

NEC smashed and grabbed their way to a win at home to Zwolle last time out despite having less of the ball and mustering considerably less attempts, though we expect the Eredivisie new boys’ luck to run out on Sunday. Big-hitting duo Ajax and PSV are the only teams to have left the Erve Asito with three points in the last 11 league fixtures there, and Heracles strength at home makes them favourites to claim three points.

Under 2.5 Goals

Just like last season, Heracles already look like being modest goal-scorers this term. The Heraclieden managed to score just once in their opening two Eredivisie matches since the summer and their lack of thrust in forward areas should mean their clash with NEC is decided by fine margins. We recommend backing under 2.5 goals to be scored with that in mind.

Half Time Result: Heracles to Win

NEC’s first away game since their promotion was a sobering experience for Rogier Meijer’s charges. NEC were hammered 5-0 at Ajax – a result that wasn’t too much of a shock in itself – though it’s worth noting that all five goals were plundered in the first half. Heracles will attempt to replicate the champions’ rapid start when they host the club from Nijmegen on Sunday and a stake on them to be leading at the interval appeals as a result.

Heracles vs NEC: Match Preview

Heracles

Heracles boss Frank Wormuth would have been enthused about the fight his team showed last week when they clawed their way back to earn a point late on at Sparta Rotterdam. Following their opening day reverse to PSV and Heracles’ draw at Sparta, the Heraclieden are still waiting to taste victory for the first time this season, though we’re tipping that wait to end on Sunday.

NEC

After their harrowing opening weekend experience in Amsterdam, NEC bounced back in fine style against Zwolle last time out, though the underlying numbers from their 2-0 triumph made for worrying reading. NEC won’t be able to outperform the stats to that degree every week however, and we expect them to struggle on the road again on Sunday.
