Tip Reasoning

  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 5 of the last 7 meetings between these two clubs.
  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 5 of Fortuna Sittard’s last 6 matches.
  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in Heracles’ last home game.
  • Fortuna Sittard have lost 7 of their 10 away games in the Eredivisie this season.

Heracles beat Fortuna Sittard with ease the last time they met in Almelo

Heracles went down 1-0 away at high-flying Willem II last time out while Fortuna Sittard won 2-1 at home to Heerenveen, meaning that the gap between the two clubs was reduced to just 3pts. However, Heracles have won four of their last seven matches against Friday’s visitors and managed to take a point home with them when the pair drew 1-1 back in August.

Over 2.5 goals have been produced in five of the duos’ last seven encounters and the same can be said for five of Fortuna Sittard’s last six matches, so you can begin to see why we are expecting at least three goals to be scored in Friday’s clash. Heracles’ last home game produced over 2.5 goals, ending in defeat at the hands of Feyenoord, but Heracles have won more often than not at home this season and their guests are yet to secure a single away win this season.

Heracles average 1.60 points per home game while Fortuna Sittard only average 0.30 points per away game, which is well below the league average of 1.05 points. 70% of the visitors away games have ended in defeat and with Heracles scoring an average of 2.40 goals and conceding 1.50 goals per home game, we have backed a final scoreline of 2-1 in favour of the hosts.

Fortuna Sittard have a dire away record in the Eredivisie

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 70% of Heracles’ home games as well as in 70% of Fortuna Sittard’s away games this season, and both teams have scored in 50% of the hosts’ home matches and the visitors’ trips on the road, which adds further weight to our tip for Friday’s clash as well as our correct score prediction.

Two of Heracles’ wins this season have been via a 1-goal margin while three of Fortuna Sittard’s defeats have been decided by that very same margin and we have predicted a narrow 2-1 win for the hosts. Heracles have only kept clean sheets in 30% of their home games so far but have failed to score in just 20%, while Fortuna Sittard have managed to keep a clean sheet in 10% of their away games.

We’re confident that over 2.5 goals will be scored in Friday’s match and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1 in favour of Heracles. The hosts don’t head into this clash as the form favourites and are looking to end a losing streak, but Fortuna Sittard are yet to win on the road and we believe this could be the moment that Heracles secure their first win of the new year.
