Match Preview and Predictions

  • The midweek Eredivisie action gets underway with the 16th top-flight clash between Zwolle and Heracles Almelo and it’s the hosts who trail the all-time H2Hs (W4, D4, L7). However, Zwolle did show character to overturn a HT deficit to win 3-1 last time out, and would leapfrog Heracles with a victory here.
  • Games at Zwolle have not been riveting affairs for the neutral, with five of their last six home league matches producing under 2.5 total goals (W1, D4, L1), which has contributed to this stadium being the joint-least entertaining Eredivisie ground this term based on total goals scored (2.0 on average). However, 66.67% of league games here have seen at least one goal before HT (HT: W3, D3, L3).
  • Frank Wormuth’s Heracles bounced back from defeat by scoring a dramatic winner en route to a 1-0 victory over Heerenveen, keeping them one point above Zwolle and within striking distance of the top half. However, four of Heracles’ five league victories prior to that recent win were followed up by conceding 2+ goals next time out (W1, L4 following league victories).
  • Heracles are not strong travellers this term, and have conceded 2.11 goals on average per away league game so far, whilst scoring just 0.67 on average. Moreover, Heracles have failed to score in a joint league-high 55.56% of their away league matches and subsequently enter this as outsiders – though they’ve overturned the odds in two of their last three trips (W2, L1).
  • Players to watch: Zwolle’s Reza Ghoochannejhad became the first ever Eredivisie player to score a hat-trick after being subbed on twice, both in 2019 and last time out. As for Heracles, Delano Burgzorg has scored the match opener in consecutive competitive fixtures.
  • Hot stat: Zwolle have won just two of seven league games entered as favourites this season (W2, D4, L1).
