Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Twente and PSV face each other in a highly-anticipated game at De Grolsch Veste on day 9 of the new Eredivisie campaign. Twente aim to build on back-to-back wins over Zwolle and Den Haag, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Talented Brazilian attacker Danilo, who has been scoring goals for fun of late, will be the man to watch in the home team.
PSV, on the other hand, are on a quest to put an end to Ajax’s dominance in the Dutch top flight. The Rood-witten recorded a routine 3-0 win over Willem II in their last league match, and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. The likes of Baumgartl, Delanghe, Piroe, and Viergever should return to contention for the visitors after recovering from coronavirus.
