Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Venlo and PSV take on each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at Seacon Stadion – De Koel. Venlo are running down a blind alley, with the team losing each of their previous seven league fixtures. Jos Luhukay’s troops are on a seven-game losing run in the Eredivisie, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as big underdogs in Sunday’s clash. PSV, on the other hand, recorded a routine 3-0 win over Heracles at the weekend, with the team keeping their title hopes alive.
Roger Schmidt’s troops have slim chances of regaining the domestic title, but since the hope dies last, we are positive that PSV will go all guns blazing at Venlo. The hosts have been totally out of form of late, and we do not believe that they are capable of matching the star-studded visitors. When the two teams met in Eindhoven earlier this term PSV outclassed Venlo 4-1.
