NEC will welcome Heracles to Goffertstadion for a matchday 19 fixture in Netherlands Eredivisie. The last meeting on 29th August 2021 ended in a NEC 1-0 win. Both sides have met eleven times in the most recent seasons. NEC has won 6 matches, and Heracles triumphed in 4. Recent outings average 2.55 goals, while both teams score 55% of the time.

NEC's latest fixture against Willem II ended in an away 1-0 win. NEC was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. NEC set the tone early and scored in the 38 minute.

Heracles's recent game against Cambuur ended in a home 1-1 draw. The midfielders disappointed the rest of the squad. They constantly failed to keep possession and didn't create much for the strikers. Heracles deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 77th minute.

So far, NEC plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.70 points per away game on average compared to 0.90 points at home. NEC's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 40% of home games.

Heracles has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Heracles wins 0.22 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Heracles kept a clean sheet in just 11% of their visits.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Heracles.

Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don't think this one on Saturday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 51% of NEC's home and Heracles's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
