PSV and Feyenoord will deliver the biggest game of this week’s Eredivisie round. This is the clash of two clubs with rich history, who were even the European champions at one point. PSV plays really well this year, and the lack of luck separated them from the UEFA Champions League. On the other side, Feyenoord has been in crisis in recent matches, not producing a better performance while playing on the road. The event at Philips Stadion in Eindhoven promises a lot of excitement, so take three minutes of your time to read this article.
PSV (-166) has only one defeat in 13 competitive matches so far this year. It took place in Lisbon, against Benfica, later costing Roger Schmidt’s boys the UCL spot. Yet, following that disappointment, they continued as if nothing happened, playing well and creating a slight advantage atop the Eredivisie standings.
The most recent domestic match was in Alkmaar, where PSV trashed the hosts, 0-3, and after that, they had a Europa League game against Real Sociedad, that saw them playing a draw, 2-2.
In mentioned 13 matches, Schmidt’s side didn’t score two or more goals on three occasions, suggesting their offensive-minded approach to each event. In this one, the hosts will have multiple injuries that might slow them down a little bit, and we’ll mention all the absent players in the remaining part of the article.
Feyenoord (+375) has been oscillating a lot since the start of the year. Most of their fans aren’t particularly happy with the way Arne Slot leads this unit, and that frustration has multiplied over the past few weeks.
Over the most recent three games, the Pride of the South lost to Elfsborg, 3-1, Utrecht with the same result, and in the end played 0-0 with Maccabi in Haifa. We also need to say that all three events took place on the road.
Previously, Feyenoord was in one hell of a shape, posting six straight wins, in five keeping clean sheets, and scoring multiple goals in each.
Kreekels, Ledezma, Sambo and Sangare are out for this game. Delanghe, Felipe, Seelt, and Thomas are questionable, but most of them should be in the protocol.
In Feyenoord, only Diemers is questionable.
Head to Head Matches
During the last year, Feyenoord had the edge over PSV, winning at home, 3-1, and then playing 1-1 on the road. Overall, PSV didn’t triumph in direct meetings since 2018, settling with three losses on the road and four draws in Eindhoven. All these events were with both teams to score.
In our opinion, PSV is currently the best team in the Netherlands and are our top favorites for winning the title. Beating Feyenoord should not be a problem for Schmidt’s unit because they aren’t only in better shape but have a much deeper roster. Despite encountering multiple injuries, PSV is our pick here. Furthermore, we would go with them covering -1.5 spread, which would boost the profits pretty good. As you saw, Feyenoord is not good away from home these days.
Pick: PSV Wins -166
