Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Following an unlucky 2-2 draw with Feyenoord, PSV will look to somehow stay in the title race when they host NEC Nijmegen to their Philips Stadion. PSV face yet another must-win situation against Rogier Meijer’s men, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Cody Gakpo, who scored a brace in the Eredivisie derby, while Roger Schmidt has no fresh injury worries ahead of Wednesday’s clash.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to climb to the Conference League berth, but seeing that PSV are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the away side. Both Magnus Mattsson and Wilfried Bony are sidelined with injuries, speaking of the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Mario Gotze):
Mario Gotze is a German midfielder, who played for Ronsberg and Eintrach Hombruch during his youth career before joining Borussia Dortmund in 2001. He made a great progress during his spell at the Borussia Dortmund’s youth academy and on 21 November, 2009 he made his Bundesliga debut for the Millionaires.
Gotze scored 22 goals in 83 league appearances for the club between 2009 and 2013 and he joined Borussia Dortmund’s bitterest rivals Bayern Munich on April, 2013. The German midfielder, who is capable of playing as a striker as well, failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign, but it has to be noted that he was struggling with injury at the start of the season.
Gotze won three Bundesliga trophies with Bayern Munich, but at the end of the 2015/2016 season he returned to Borussia Dortmund. In 2014 he represented Germany at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil and he scored the winner in the final against Argentina. Mario Gotze was born in Memmingen on 3 June, 1992.
