Best Tip: Over 1.5 goals

While supporters of Heracles prepare themselves for this clash, they certainly have reason to expect an exciting match. After analysing the relevant stats and past head-to-head (H2H) fixture history, it looks as though over 2.5 goals will be a worthy bet, as both teams know they have goals in them and either could get the win. The prediction and odds are both pointing in the same direction: over 2.5 goals is the bet to go for.
