PSV stumbled a few days ago in a duel with Sparta, failing to beat an opponent on his field. However, it is unlikely that the club will be able to create a sensation for the second time in a row – despite the good form.
The hosts are seriously inferior to the opponent in the class. Surely both teams will rotate, but PSV has a more solid and high-quality reserve, it is unlikely that the favorite will stumble today.
Prediction for this match: PSV individual total over two goals.
