Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Heracles will be looking to make amends for a 3-0 loss to Vitesse when they take on RKC Waalwijk on day 5 of the new Eredivisie campaign. Heracles kicked off the season with a 2-0 win over Den Haag, but, all of a sudden, they suffered a dip in form. The Black and Whites are eager to put an end to their three-game winless run in the national championship, and the game against the rock-bottom seems to be an ideal situation for that to happen.
RKC do not seem to be competitive at this level, and given their shaky defence, anything but a routine home win will be a major surprise. Since Heracles boss Frank Wormuth can count on key players for Saturday’s showdown, we predict that the underdogs are going to return home empty-handed. In their previous home game in the Eredivisie Heracles did well to hold PSV to a draw.
