Team News

Heracles
NEC Nijmegen
  • Head coach John Lammers has no free injury worries.
  • Following last weekend's setback in Amsterdam several players are pushing for starts.
  • Among those looking to make Heracles' starting lineup are Ruben Roosken, Marko Vejinović, Thomas Bruns and Bryan Limbombe.
  • Rogier Meijer has a fully available squad to choose from.
  • Despite the setback against Excelsior he's expected to make few changes though forwards Pedro Marques and Rober González are in contention to start.

Prediction

  • Heracles were humbled 4-1 in their opening Eredivisie match at Johan Cruijff Arena against Ajax while NEC suffered a 4-3 defeat against Excelsior at home which extended their winless streak in Eredivisie opening round matches to four games.
  • When the sides last met in Eredivisie action, they played out a goalless draw at Goffertstadion in January 2022.
  • NEC, though, have got the better of Heracles lately, unbeaten in their last three Eredivisie matches (two wins and one draw).
  • Heracles is seeking their first league win over Heracles since December 2016.
  • Youri Baas, Sontje Hansen, and Koki Ogawa are the early leading scorers for NEC while Mario Engels has netted Heracles' only Eredivisie goal this season.
  • On home soil last season, Heracles registered 15 wins, three draws and one loss across 19 Eerste Divisie contests. NEC, meanwhile, picked up five wins, six draws and six losses in their 17 Eredivisie matches on the road.
