Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Twente and Heracles go head to head at De Grolsch Veste in what is expected to be a close Eredivisie encounter. The Reds suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their previous four league fixtures, and seeing that they have slim chances of booking their place in the Conference League, home win should not be considered.
Since Twente failed to impress in a 3-0 loss to Fortuna, head coach Ron Jans could opt to make changes to the starting XI. Heracles, on the other hand, are fighting hard to secure a top-eight finish. The Black and Whites impressed in a 4-0 win over Venlo, and we predict that they will take advantage of Twente’s poor form. In their last meeting at De Grolsch Veste Heracles defeated Twente 3-2, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
