Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
After sharing the spoils with Zwolle on Tuesday evening, Heracles will be aiming to start a new winning run in the Eredivisie round 20 when they welcome Groningen at Erve Asito. The Black and Whites have been having their ups and downs this season, but the fact that they defeated both Emmen and Heerenveen in the previous two home fixtures is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday’s clash.
Groningen, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-0 win over Den Haag. The Green and White Army, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-0 win over Den Haag. Groningen, though, have always been struggling at Erve Asito stadium, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Both Bakboord and Knoester are likely to miss the game with injuries for the hosts, while Arjen Robben remain in the recovery room for the visitors.

Volendam are considered the club’s fiercest rivals, but they have a rivalry with Twente as well after the 1980s incidents between their fans. Groningen have yet to win the Eredivisie trophy, but they did well to go all the way in the Dutch Cup in the 2014/15 season.
