Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
PSV will be looking to retain top position in the standings when they host G.A. Eagles to Philips Stadion on Matchday 18. The league leaders rolled over RKC 4-1 in their last league match, with the team extending their winning run to three games. Both Carlos Vinicius and Vertessen are pushing for a start, while Madueke, Propper, Zahavi, and Sambo remain in the recovery room.
The newcomers, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to NEC, and despite their fine displays in the first half of the season, we are tempted to put our money on the title-chasing hosts. In their last meeting in the Dutch top flight PSV defeated G.A. Eagles 2-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Both Marc Cardona and Sam Crowther are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
