Excelsior vs PSV Eindhoven
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 18.45 UK/ 19.45 CET
Venue: Stadion Woudestein (Rotterdam).
The battle for the Eredivisie title is once more on, as Ajax managed to cut down PSV’s lead at the top by four points in the last two match-days alone. Right now, Eindhoven’s reign at the top is threatened, and they have to deliver in this tie at any cost.
Things might just be going their way though, considering the stature of their opponents. Excelsior is just two points off the relegation line and has conceded the most goals of all the 18 teams in participation. They have also let in the most goals at home, and to make matters complicated for them, their visitors hold the distinction of having conceded the least away from home. Furthermore, PSV has scored 74 goals so far and is one of the two teams to score more than even 50.

Excelsior vs PSV Eindhoven Prediction
Eindhoven is desperate to win, and if history is any indication when the team is backed into the corner, they will deliver. They can’t afford to drop any more points considering that Ajax has gotten back their aura of invincibility. Right now, it’s an extremely favorable draw for PSV in the form of the bottom tier Excelsior, and a huge win is a must. More than the points on offer, Eindhoven needs this win to once again believe in their cause.
H2h ties amply suggest the team is capable of this task. They won the last six h2h ties in a row and recorded the last 17 wins in succession. Moreover, at this venue, they would have boasted of a 100% winning record if not for a draw in 2007. Even then, except for that drawn match, the visitors have recorded two or more goals in all of their attempts.
Additionally, the team is unbeaten in their last 11 fixtures in a row, and in 17 of their last 20 on the road. Whereas, Excelsior went winless in ten of their last fourteen match-ups, and in 14 of their last 20 at home.
And finally, PSV has registered 74 goals so far and is one of only two teams to cross 50, and they have conceded the least on the road. In addition, Excelsior has conceded the most goals overall, and at home.
There’s simply not one fact to argue against PSV recording a huge win this Sunday.
