Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
All eyes will be on Philips Stadion when PSV and Twente face each other in the Eredivisie round 21. PSV aim to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Feyenoord, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Twente in Saturday’s clash. Even though Gakpo, Gotze, Ledezma, Madueke, Romero, and Viergever are likely to miss the game with injuries, home win should be considered as PSV are seven points behind Ajax in the Eredivisie standings.
The Tukkers, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to find the net in the previous three league fixtures. Twente have been producing fine displays on the travels this season, but given the importance of the match for PSV, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the title-chasing side. The likes of Brama, Cerny, and Oosterwolde are all likely to miss the game through injuries.
Highlighted Player (Philipp Max):
Philipp Max is the son of the former striker Martin Max, who is famous for being one of the oldest winners of the top scorer crown in Bundesliga, at the age of 32 and 34. Born in Viersen, Germany, Philipp Max started his career in SC Baldham, after which he joined 1860 Munich in 2003.
Bayern Munich youth team was his next destination, but three years after Max signed for Schalke 04 in 2010. For two years he played in the youth team and after that he was moved to Schalke 04 II, recording 54 games and netting 3 goals in the process.
He made his debut for the Shalke 04 senior team on March 2014 in the clash against Borussia Dortmund, as a replacement for Julian Draxler. However, he did not impress during his spell with Die Königsblauen, so he moved to Karlsruher and later on to Augsburg, which was a spot on decision. The left back, who can also play as a left midfielder and left winger, was the second-best assist provider in the Bundesliga during the season 2017/18, just behind Thomas Muller.
Highlighted Team (Twente):
Based in the city of Enschede, Twente is a Dutch football club that welcomes their rivals at De Grolsch Veste. The venue was opened on May 10, 1998, and the capacity of the stadium is 30,205 people. The club was founded in 1965 as a merger of Sportsclub Enschede and Enschedese Boys.
The Reds did remarkably well to win the Eredivisie title in the 2009/10 season, with the team finishing the process only one point clear of Dutch giants Ajax. As a result, Twente booked their place in the Champions League group stages. The Reds did well to collect six points in their group, but that did not help them make it to the last 16.
Twente are well known for their red jerseys, but they wear dark blue shirts when playing on the travels. The Reds take on Heracles Almelo in the Twentse Derby. Sander Boshchker is leading Twente’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 653 goals on his account.
