PSV Eindhoven vs Cambuur
Date: Saturday, 21 August
Kick-Off: 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion
On Saturday evening, PSV and Cambuur will square off in a match that is in favour of the home side at Philips Stadion. PSV started the new Eredivisie season in style, defeating Heracles 2-0 on the road.
In their last outing, goals from Bruma and Noni Madueke in the 40th and 64th minute respectively sealed a comfortable victory.
In that game, PSV had 64% possession which resulted in 19 shots on goal, out of which, 6 were on target compared to Heracles’ 36% possession which resulted in 6 shots on goal, out of which, 2 were on target.
Cambuur, on the other hand, struggled in a 2-1 loss to Groningen. Robin Maulun was able to equalise for The Yellow Blues, but a stoppage time winner from Jorgen Strand Larsen in the 93rd minute stole a point from the away team.
In that game, Cambuur had majority of the possession which totalled up to 54% while Groningen had 46% but, the Yellow Blues were not able to create chances and threaten the opposition as they had 6 shots at goal and were able to keep 3 on target.
Whereas Groningen were able to muster 11 shots on goal and keep 7 on target which was the main factor in the game as they tested the defensive steel that Cambuur had on offer.
PSV can really challenge for the title, but they must continue winning to make progress if they are to end Ajax’s dominance in the Dutch top flight.

PSV Eindhoven vs Cambuur Prediction
This fixture should see the home side comfortably being winners as they are rock solid in all departments of their game. Their tremendous record against the Royal Blues is to be taken into consideration.
As a result, the home side are going to be extremely dominant on the ball and they will be looking to pile up attack after attack on their visitors.
We see a massive value in PSV running riot and improving their overall goal difference as we should see Mario Gotze getting in on the scoresheet at any time during the game as he would see a really good opportunity to add to his goals tally.
At the same time, we do not see how Cambuur are going to hurt the home side when they are on the attack and hence, we back our chances of both teams not to score.
