Both Heracles and Feyenoord were beaten in the Eredivisie last time out, and in midweek Heracles were knocked out of the KNVB Beker while Feyenoord progressed thanks to a big win over Den Haag. On Sunday the pair return to the bread and butter of the Eredivisie, and with both teams on twenty points and only separated by goal difference we’re expecting a competitive game between the pair.
Ilić gave Breda a twenty-first minute lead at home against Heracles last weekend, and that strike proved enough to separate the two teams at the half time interval. The visitors managed to get back onto level terms on the hour mark through Kuwas, and with 55% of the overall possession and sixteen shots to the hosts four, it looked as if Heracles were the only team that were going to go on and win the game.
However, after absorbing the majority of the pressure from the visitors, Breda struck late on through te Vrede to claim all three points. Heracles didn’t deserve to lose this game, but only have themselves to blame for doing so as the visitors missed a hosts of chances when the game was tied at 1-1, but poor finishing cost them dearly.
Swedish striker Peterson has started the season in fantastic form with eight goals in the opening eleven Eredivisie matches, but Heracles also have Dalmau and Kuwas on five goals each and the trio will all cause Feyenoord problems this weekend.
Feyenoord were completely outplayed when they travelled to Amsterdam last time out, but they caused many of their own problems in the first half. Full back St. Juste was sent-off in the fifth minute and in the twenty-second minute the visitors goalkeeper Bijlow scored an own goal to put Ajax 1-0 up.
Moroccan midfielder Ziyech added a second goal for the hosts late in the first half, and with a man down and a two goal deficit to make up it was always going to be hard for Feyenoord to get back into the match. Ajax added a third goal in the final ten minutes of the match through former Southampton midfielder Tadić that wrapped up a comfortable 3-0 win for the Eredivisie’s second placed club.
We’re confident that Feyenoord will return to winning ways this weekend and have backed the game to end 2-0 to the visitors. Feyenoord have won the last five meetings between the two clubs and Heracles have lost three of their last five matches in league and cup, while Feyenoord have won four of their last six in league and cup.
These two sides have played each other thirty-eight times before, and with 25 wins, 8 draws, and 5 defeats its Feyenoord who have dominated this fixture over the years.
Maximilian Rossmann, Silvester van der Water, Robin Propper, Sebastian Jakubiak, and Jeff Hardeveld could all miss Sunday’s game due to injury.
Jerry St. Juste is suspended, while Ridgeciano Haps remains sidelined through injury for the visitors this weekend.
