Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
All eyes will be on De Kuip when Feyenoord and PSV go head to head in the Eredivisie derby on Matchday 20. Feyenoord kicked off 2021 with back-to-back wins over Sparta and Zwolle, but they are on a three-game losing run in the Eredivisie ahead of the visit of PSV. The Rotterdammers are eager to get back on course, but they will have a big fish to fry in Sunday’s derby. The likes of Bijlow, Kokcu, and Teixeira are all out of contention with injuries for the hosts.
The Rood-witten, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 midweek win over Emmen. PSV are on a three-game winning run in the Dutch top flight, and given Feyenoord’s current form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Roger Schmidt’s troops. A man to watch in the away team will be Donyell Malen, who has netted nine goals so far this term.
