Reason For Heerenveen vs Heracles Betting Tips

It was another predictable season for Heerenveen last term as they fought their way to an 8th place finish in the Eredivisie, an area of the table that De Superfriezan are very familiar with by now. They have been a mid-table side for a seemingly endless period, only dipping out of the top ten twice in the last 25 years but only ever breaching the top three on one occasion.

Unsurprisingly, it’s looking like another stint in this section again this year. They started the campaign with an excellent and dramatic 3-2 win over PEC Zwolle, and while their results have dipped since then they remain in a comfortable 10th position after four matches.

Since that victory Heerenveen have failed to win in the Eredivisie, drawing to both Vitesse and VVV either side of an incredible 5-3 defeat at home to Dutch giants Feyenoord. It’s not been the best of starts, but things could certainly have gone worse for them.

Heracles, on the other hand, are enjoying a very pleasant start to the campaign. Their 3-2 win at home to AZ before the international break made it two wins, one draw, and one defeat from their opening four games and leaves them up in 5th position, but the chances are that their good fortune will come to an end at some point.

Like their opponents, Heracles are amid a long period of predictable stability in their Eredivisie position. They were promoted back in 2005, and since then have finished between 10th and 15th in ten of their 13 campaigns. Their most successful was a couple of years ago as they finished 6th in 2015/16, but the last two seasons have seen them slip to back-to-back 10th place finishes.

Despite their good start to the season, there is a concerning sign for the visitors. They managed to hold Ajax to a 1-1 draw away in the opening round of fixtures, but their most recent away day resulted in a 5-0 thrashing by fellow lower mid-tablers Willem II.

In fact, Heracles have only won two of their 19 Eredivisie away games since the start of last season, and have lost 11 of them. Meanwhile, Heerenveen have a promising home record of six wins from their last 13 home league games to look back on. Due to Heracles’ awful away record we’re backing Heerenveen to take the three points on Sunday, along with a 2-1 correct score predictions.
