Groningen vs PSV
Date: Saturday, 27 October 2018
Kick-Off at 18:45 UK / 19:45 CET
Venue: Hitachi Capital Mobility Stadium (Groningen).
The top of the table will meet the very rock bottom on Saturday evening as reigning champions PSV travel to Hitachi Capital Mobility Stadium to take on the struggling Groningen side in the 10th round of Eredivisie.
The Peasants are still impeccable in this term of the competition. They won nine from nine so far and are healthy five points adrift of the second-placed Ajax coming into this weekend’s tie.
The Pride of the North, on the other side, took only four points from nine outings so far. They just lacked meticulousness at the back so far in the season. The team did not do much better at the other end failing to find the back of the net on more than five occasions. It’s by far the weakest attacking record in the entire league.
Groningen vs PSV: Head-to-head
PSV generally dominated the head to head tie with the Pride of the North winning 29 and losing just 7 H2H encounters.
However, the Peasants had big troubles with Groningen in the last couple of years.
Each of last four head to head affairs ended without a winner.
Groningen vs PSV: Prediction
The clash with the unbeaten team comes at the wrong time for the hosts who fell 4-1 last weekend away at Heracles. Danny Buijs’ men thus made it six defeats and a draw in last seven games in all competitions.
The fact they allowed four goals against the likes of Heracles is all but promising coming into the clash with PSV who boast league’s by far the best attacking record with 36 goals notched in 9 games so far (4 per game).
The visitors bagged an impressive ten-goal tally in last two league ties with VVV and Emmen. They also managed to save a point in the mid-week Champions League tie with Tottenham (2-2 draw). The only question is how many goals will end up behind Sergio Padt’s back here.
