Preview: Heracles vs. Almere City - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Eredivisie clash between Heracles and Almere City, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Round 24 of the 2023-24 Eredivisie season draws to an end with a meeting between Heracles and Almere City at the Erve Asito on Sunday evening.

The teams were both beaten in their respective last outings and will be looking to get themselves back on track with a positive result this weekend.


Match preview

Heracles suffered a fourth defeat in five matches as they fell to a narrow 1-0 loss against FC Utrecht at Stadion Galgenwaard on Friday.

Erwin van de Looi's men fell behind to Victor Jensen's opener 10 minutes from time, and that proved to be the all-important moment in a tight affair.

As a result, the Heraclieden remain 14th in the Eredivisie table, just four points ahead of RKC Waalwijk in the race for top-flight survival.

Next up is the challenge of an opposing outfit who boast just one victory from the previous five editions of this fixture across all competitions.

Off the back of recently ending a six-game winless run on home turf, Sunday's hosts now go in search of back to back wins in front of their fans for the first time since September.

Almere City saw their three-game unbeaten streak come to an end against defending champions Feyenoord on Sunday in a 2-0 defeat at the Yanmar Stadion.

Alex Pastoor's men held firm in the first half but were eventually undone by second-half goals from Yankuba Minteh in the final 18 minutes.

With 27 points picked up from 23 matches so far, De Zwarte Schapen sit 13th in the standings, five points ahead of their next opponents ahead of the clash in Almelo.

Currently on a run of of four wins in five away matches leading up to Sunday, the visitors will be confident of getting the job done on enemy territory once again.

Team News

Diego van Oorschot is still sidelined for Heracles with a broken leg, while defender Sava-Arangel Cestic continues to nurse an ankle problem

The home side will also be without the services of 19-year-old Stijn Bultman, who is currently unavailable for selection through illness.

Pascu was fit enough to be named on the Almere City bench last time out, but it remains to be seen if he will be ready to play a part in this one.

Thomas Robinet has been directly involved in nine of his side's 22 league goals this term, making the Frenchman one to keep an eye here.


Heracles possible starting lineup:
Brouwer; Oppegard, Willems, Hoogma, Sonnenberg, Wieckhoff; Engels, Hrustic, De Keersmaecker, Bruijn; Hornkamp

Almere City possible starting lineup:
Bakker; Akujobi, Mbe Soh, Van Bruggen, Floranus; Robinet, Pena, Ritmeester; Van La Parra, Hansen, Cathline
