Heracles vs Groningen Predictions

Groningen hold a narrow advantage going into the first leg of their Europa League play-off against Heracles, who finished a place above them in the Eredivisie this season. A 2-1 victory, sealed by Rasmus Lindgren’s winner, means Groningen are slight favourites in this tie, but the away goal held by Heracles could yet prove to be vital.

Heracles have drawn their last three matches at home and the same result again in Sunday’s game would not be enough to see them through. As the teams met on the last day of the Eredivisie season, Heracles have lost back-to-back games to Groningen 2-1, which could be a psychological factor to keep in mind.

Free betting tips and predictions for this play-off have also to consider the relative form of the two sides. Groningen have a lot of momentum, drawing at half-time and winning at full-time in six of their last seven matches, while they have also won eight of their last 10 matches against Heracles.

It is tempting to side with the visitors for this match on that basis, but instead we will be a little bit more cautious and instead back Groningen to avoid defeat, which would be enough for them to win the tie. Groningen Double Chance at 4/5 with Betfair is our tip for this Eredivisie play-off, with the 11/2 available on a 1-1 Draw also appealing.
