I really like the hosts here, they have very much targeted this match as three, must win points, with some tough fixtures coming up between now and Christmas. They have certainly named a very adventurous line up, with an attacking midfield formation, ahead of a three man strike partnership. Until the heavy loss to AZ, which someone was going to be on the end of sooner or later, they had got their act together, taking a point at Ajax and thumping Groningen 5-1, a result made all the more impressive, by the fact that the visitors were previously unbeaten on the road.

Heracles are struggling, they have conceded 15 in 4 starts and 17 in 5 away matches. They have two very winable home games coming up and with their away day woes, if they are to survive this season, will be better suited by committing theirselves fully to those two matches, especially with 3 key players very doubtful for this evening.

H2h favours NEC who have a 4-1-1 record and only conceded in one game, with all wins coming by an identical 2-0 scoreline.

6 points NEC -1/2 ball 1.70 + general quote.

Good Luck.
