HRN vs HRA Dream11 :Heracles and Heerenveen begin their Eredivisie campaign today as the two sides get ready to take on each other
We’ve had to endure a long and arduous wait for football to resume in Europe but with August finally here, so is football. With all of the leagues in the continent slated to begin their sojourn in a maximum of two weeks, we have Eredivisie beginning things with the league having already gotten underway.
And Heracles and Heerenveen will be beginning their campaigns in the 2019-20 season starting today when the two sides take to the pitch to clash heads against each other. For Heracles who finished 7th last season, this campaign is all about using that as a platform and going onto break into the top 4 as they look to continue their ascendancy in league.
Elsewhere for Heerenveen, the 11th place finish in 2018-19 was a dejecting one but a sign of how much the side has detoriated in recent times. They have failed to make an impact on the league for quite some time now, serving only as an outfit who make up the numbers rather than truly challenging as a footballing side. They’ll be using this season as a means to repose the faith reposed in them by their raucous supporters and overhaul what has been a torrid time for the side.
Being the opening match of the season for both these sides, expect both to come out tentatively before finally finding their feet in the middle. This will be a match which should take time to come alive but once it does, we see Heracles emerging as the winner from this one.
They should stay true to a record which has favoured them heavily, seeing them win 14 of the 28 encounters contested between the two sides with Heerenveen winning 8 of those and the 6 ending in draws. They went up adding the services of Navajo Bakboord, Adrian Szoke and Cyriel Dessers, players who will help improve them in the attacking facet and take them to a win today.

- Drost will remain out for Heracles for some time as he continues to recover from an injury setback.

Dream 11 Picks
Goal-Keeper for HRN vs HRA Dream11
Given that this is the first match of the season for either side and that both the sides are unknown entities, we don’t see a cleansheet emerging from this one. Both sides will be looking to come hot off the blocks in this one and begin their soiree with a win and it’s this narrative which sees us go in with a goal-keeper who’ll provide us with more saves.
We’ve decided to go with Warner Hahn from Heerenveen owing to this script with the side set to face an onslaught of shots at their goal, something which will give Hahn a good opportunity to come up with important save points.
Defenders for HRN vs HRA Dream11
Continuing with the same narrative as we embark on building our backline, our three man defensive unit is composed of players who find themselves marauding up the pitch and finding themselves in attacking situations. And massively pivotal to Heracles 42 goals the last season were Dario Van Den Buijs and Maximilian Rossmann with the side’s formation seeing these two move forward to provide support to the attacking men and open up spaces in the opposition’s defence.
We have the one player coming in from Heerenveen as well with Woudenberg a part of our side for this one with the leftback’s 8 credit price tag making him excellent value.
Midfielders for HRN vs HRA Dream11
With a main reason of Heerenveen’s demise in the previous season being their defence, one which catapulted to leak 35 goals across the season, expect Heracles to enjoy their time today in the attacking facet. We are getting n their striker, Joey Konings as the first pick here with Mohammed Osman coming in as well after scoring 5 goals and getting 3 assists in the previous season.
From Heerenveen we are getting in Hicham Faik who nagged to find himself score thrice and get four assists in the last season. A pivotal part of his side’s 3 man formation in the middle of the mark, he’s not only likely to score but will contribute with the tackle points as well. Rodney Kongolo comes in as well with the Manchester City man having learned his traits under the tutelage of some of the best players in the arena.
Strikers for HRN vs HRA Dream11
His side’s top scorer in the previous season as he went onto get a massive 15 goals paired with 5 assists, rightwinger Cyriel Dessers is our first pick from Heracles over here. He’s going to be paired alongside Sylvester Van Der Water while with the 7 goals, we are bringing in Heerenveen’s lone striker, Mitchell Van Bergen for this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Dessers’ is chosen as our captain for this match while Konings is our vice-captain.
