Groningen vs Heracles, a new direct duel just 5 days from the previous

Championship in the Netherlands ended with a big surprise, Ajax lost the title in the very last stage. Matches in the Netherlands but continues because we have some unknowns. One would be the last team qualified for the next edition of the Europa League. Groningen and Heracles, bands that will play tonight at 19:30 on Euroborg are two of these bands. The match between them comes just four days after the last round of Eredivisie dispute when Lindgren managed a double in 11 minutes that ultimately made the difference, though Bel Hassani reduced the disabled in 70 minutes.

Groningen was the team contrasts in the last three months. First do not get even a point in six consecutive rounds. Even so leaders gave credit to van de Looi and were not deceived. Since the beginning of last month Groningen won 16 of 18 possible points. He won five games, but only one of them was taken at a difference of more than one goal. Groningen had in February – March 3 failures in a row, but playing with Ajax, PSV and Vitesse. There followed three games easier and therefore as many victories. Groningen’s problem is the prospect of a double header that took home goal in five of six matches, and your opponent has eight games in a row scored.

Groningen can not count on three players in this game. Even in the absence of Tibbling, Mahi and Antonia are injured, so Erwin van de Looi will likely begin with the same first 11 who won Sunday’s game.

Heracles was undefeated in seven games in a row before losing last Sunday on Euroborg. By then it was in the failure of successive four games without a win. Away not only won two games in the previous 12 games played away. But it is important to have scored again, because another failure with 1: 2 as the last Sunday would be a very bad result, bearing in mind that this played perfectly at home in the last month. Returning to the duel with Groningen it should also be said that the game was the sixth game in which the group was involved in Almelo and who scored both gates.

Despite the failure of Sunday’s game it seems coach will begin with the same first guests 11 and tonight.
