Match Preview and Predictions

  • Although Heracles Almelo managed a hard-fought point last time out, they are still winless in nine of their last ten Eredivisie games (W1, D3, L6). Compounding matters further, only one side has received more yellow cards than Heracles this season, and they’ve been shown more yellows than the opposition – or a red card – in each of their last six league games.
  • They’ll be happy to be at home though, where 32 of their last 45 points have been earned, a run which includes Heracles’ only two league victories in 2020/21. That could yet improve as manager Frank Wormuth has won by a 2+ goal margin and ‘to nil’ in both of his prior home H2Hs with Sittard, whilst Heracles have also won eight of their last ten matches as an Eredivisie home favourite (W8, L2).
  • Visiting Fortuna Sittard grabbed their first victory of the season at the weekend courtesy of a 3-0 HT lead, despite extending their run of conceding 2+ goals to 11 consecutive Eredivisie games. Sittard bit the bullet and appointed Sjors Ultee as manager until the end of the campaign, although Ultee lost by a 2+ goal margin in his two games as interim coach prior to last weekend.
  • All four of Sittard’s away league defeats this term came via a 2+ goal margin, whilst three saw them trail at HT. However Sittard have also capitulated late on in away games too, with seven of their last nine conceded away goals arriving beyond HT.
  • Players to watch: Rai Vloet has been involved in nine of Heracles’ 11 league goals – the largest contribution of any player in his team this Eredivisie campaign (seven goals, two assists). Meanwhile, Zian Flemming scored his fifth competitive goal of the season last time out, although he’s still seeking his first away league goal for Sittard.
  • Hot stat: A league-high 72.73% of Sittard’s fixtures have produced over 3.5 goals.
