Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Despite beating NEC Nijmegen 3-2 in their last league match, PSV failed to put an end to Ajax’s dominance in the Eredivisie. PSV, though, booked their place in the Champions League qualifiers as they are seven points clear of third-place Feyenoord ahead of Sunday’s showdown. Roger Schmidt’s troops aim to finish the season in style, and they are seen as hot favourites to beat the rock-bottom side at MAC PARK Stadion.
There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Zwolle. The Blauwvingers suffered a 2-0 loss to Sparta in midweek, with the Rotterdammers ruining their survival hopes. Anyhow, David faces Goliath at MAC PARK Stadion, meaning that anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. All Max de Waal, Oussama Darfalou, and Samir Lagsir should miss out with injuries for the home side.

Konstantinos Lamprou is a Greek goalkeeper who plays for Eredivisie club RKC Waalwijk. Kostas is a product of the famous Ajax football academy, but he eventually decided to join Feyenoord football school.

In the 2019/20 season he did not see any game action with Vitesse, and, as a result, he decided to join RKC Waalwijk at the end of the campaign. Born in Athens on September 18, 1991, Konstantinos Lamprou has 14 caps for the Greece U21 team. He has yet to make his debut with the senior team. His preferred foot is left and he wears the No. 31 shirt at RKC Waalwijk.
