PSV Eindhoven vs RKC Waalwijk
Netherlands – KNVB Beker
Date: Tuesday, 30 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
PSV’s busy schedule after the International break continues as they host RKC Waalwijk for their KNVB Beker clash on Tuesday afternoon, just days after the weekend Eredivisie trip to Groningen, as they look to build on the great challenge and a 2-2 draw against Premier League rivals Tottenham in Champions League.
Luuk de Jong netted a late equalizer on Wednesday and extended a three-game unbeaten streak for Boeren, showing off in the final third once again after beating VVV and Emmen beforehand – with a total of ten goals scored!
RKC Waalwijk could thus have troubles coping with the Eredivisie table-toppers at this point and even more so with their troubles on the road – where they’ve suffered four consecutive losses since early September.
They come into the match on the back of a thriller 3-2 win over Utrecht II but it does feel Fred Grim don’t have enough firepower at this point to seriously challenge in-form PSV, even if Mark van Bommel sends out a rotated lineup with some of his more fringe players.

- Interestingly, Waalwijk have had more success in front of the home crowd and bagged wins in all of the last three home matchups against PSV.

We could see a rotated line-up here but we still feel they have what it takes to outclass the Eerste Divisie rivals.
We do feel we’ll still see goals and PSV’s in-form attacking line surely promises a lot for the day as well, as we also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.80.
