PSV Eindhoven vs FC Emmen
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Philips Stadion, Eindhoven.
PSV Eindhoven were unable to keep up with Ajax Amsterdam and AZ Alkmaar in the previous edition of Eredivisie.
There were many changes within the roster during the summer, and they have the highest ambitions possible for season 2020/21. Their journey started with a win against Groningen last week, with realistic chances to maintain the 100% win rate in round two.
PSV welcomes Emmen, one of the most unpredictable teams in the league and anything but a convincing home win would be a huge surprise. The odds on home victory are at ridiculously low 1.16 rate, so we have to find some alternatives.
PSV vs Emmen Head-to-head
Emmen have spent only two seasons in Eredivisie in club’s history so far, so three games total against PSV in history shouldn’t surprise anyone. Fourth was planned to be played in March but got postponed due to pandemic outbreak.
Interestingly, PSV achieved only one victory against this opponent. The last two head to heads ended in draws 1-1 and 2-2.
12 goals were scored in previous meetings total, which averages 4.00 per match.
PSV Eindhoven vs FC Emmen Prediction
Low win rate in away matches was the main reason why PSV couldn’t compete for the title last year. Coach Roger Schmidt was satisfied with the pre-season period where Eindhoven defeated Hertha Berlin quite convincingly.
Starting the new season against Groningen on the road was not an easy task, but PSV prevailed and won the match 3-1. One of the best players in the league Donyell Malen recovered from injury during the summer and scored one goal.
It is also worth adding he missed a penalty shot though. The biggest acquisition during the summer Philipp Max is going to be great addition for the back line.
Emmen are going to be in the lower part of the table this season in our opinion. Their defense looked horrendous against VVV in the opening match, losing 3-5 FT. They might go through similar scenario at Philips Arena.
