Groningen vs PSV Eindhoven
Date: Sunday, 8 March 2020
Kick-Off at 15:45 UK
Venue: Hitachi Capital Mobility Stadium.
Groningen welcomes PSV Eindhoven on Sunday and this should be one of the most interesting clashes of Eredivisie Round 26.
Hosts have been trying to enter the playoffs zone for quite some time now, while PSV hopes other title contenders are going to spill some points and allow them to get back into the race.
We should see a narrow contest judging by the odds. Home win is priced at 3.20 odds at the moment, while chances for PSV to secure 6th victory on the road are reflected in 2.20 price.
Groningen vs PSV Eindhoven Head-to-head
Thanks to very rich history and high number of trophies won in Netherlands, it is not surprising to see PSV’s dominant stats against Groningen FC.
Team from Eindhoven was victorious in 32 out of 51 duels so far, losing only seven.
The first head to head match in the season between these teams was also won by PSV 3-1 in September 2019.
Five out of the last six encounters have ended either Over 2.5 goals FT or BTTS. Interestingly, Groningen won six out of their seven total games against PSV at this ground.
Groningen vs PSV Eindhoven Prediction
Groningen are currently sitting in 8th position with 35 points, just three behind the playoffs line and Vitesse. A big majority of their points was collected at home where they won seven out of 12 matches, while losing four.
Interestingly, those defeats didn’t happen against top tier teams but Twente, Heracles, VVV and Utrecht. As the matter of fact, Groningen defeated Ajax at this ground recently.
PSV Eindhoven are having a great time in the last month, having won three out of the last four Eredivisie games. They were not successful in the derby match played against Feyenoord last weekend at home. That match ended without a winner 1-1. Also, one of their best players Donyell Malen is still injured.
PSV have won only 5 out of 13 matches played away from home, so we feel confident in picking the draw here as the first bet.
Stake should not be high though. History says we usually see open clashes when these two teams meet, so consider BTTS for the alternative.
