Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
There will be fireworks when Feyenoord and PSV face each other in the Eredivisie derby on Sunday. Feyenoord look unstoppable at the moment, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive league win. Midfielder Jens Toornstra is a major doubt, while goalkeeper Justin Bijlow is out for the rest of the season. Bryan Linssen is widely expected to return to the starting line-up after coming as a substitute in a 3-1 win over Fortuna Sittard.
PSV, on the other hand, aim to melt Ajax’s advantage in the Eredivisie standings. Given the attacking potential of the two sides, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team, but all Vertessen, Boscagli, Obispo, and Thomas remain in the treatment room. Winger Noni Madueke is a major doubt.
