Roda JC Kerkrade vs Heracles Almelo Free Picks, Predictions, and Odds
Heracles has been nothing but terrific this season topping the league rankings before the World Cup break.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
The last time these teams met was a month and a half ago in the Dutch Cup and Heracles won in a five-goal thriller. Their last meeting in the Second Division was four years ago, and it was another big win for Heracles.
Over 2.5 Goals
Four straight matches between these sides ended with at least three goals, and with the way Heracles is playing, it’s hard to comprehend that something similar won’t happen again.
Heracles hasn’t played a draw in away matches this season, they have five wins and three losses. Roda, on the other hand, is one of the best home teams in the league, so this will be a big challenge for Heracles who are in the middle of a great run of form.
Roda JC Kerkrade vs Heracles Almelo Preview: Can Heracles hold on and win?
Roda JC Kerkrade
Roda is currently eighth in the league table, but because AZ Alkmaar’s U21 team is in front of them, they are seventh. They are far away from Heracles who top the league, but they have a legitimate chance of securing one of the top eight positions to give themselves a chance into promotion to Eredivisie. They were there recently but failed to secure an extended stay. Their current season has been a challenging one, they lost three times in their last five games, but are hoping that their home form will keep them where they need to be when the time comes to fight for promotion. Team captain Nils Roseler is injured, so there will be a change in the middle of the defense. Roda’s biggest strength is their center forward Dylan Vente who scored impressive 13 goals this season and is by far the best scorer in the league. He is also the team’s best creator with four assists.
Heracles’ twelve wins in 16 matches are impressive enough, but the most satisfying thing for the team is their continuity. They don’t fall apart easily, even when they are in trouble. They have three losses this season, but only one draw. They are the best-attacking team in the league with 44 goals, and at the moment have a four-point cushion in front of Maastricht who lies third in the rankings. Only the top two teams will secure a direct path to Eredivisie. Heracles doesn’t depend on a single player to score goals, they have important diversity in that aspect. Emil Hansson leads the scoring charts with nine goals but also has seven assists. Nikolai Laursen follows with seven goals and five assists. Interestingly, both are wing players, one attacks from the left side, the other from the right.
