PSV Eindhoven vs FC Emmen
Date: 6 August 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
Emmen had the best defensive record in the second tier of Dutch football last season en route to earning the return to the Eredivisie football this year.
However, the team led by Dick Lukkien will have one of the two toughest away fixtures to start the season with as they travel to Eindhoven to take on PSV on the opening day of the 2022/23 top-flight campaign.
PSV have significantly bolstered their squad with high-profile signings this summer and they are ready to challenge Ajax in the battle for the Eredivisie silverware this time around.
After all, Ruud van Nistelrooy’s men have already proved to have what it takes to demolish Ajax seven days ago when they celebrated a 3-5 victory over the Amsterdam outfit in the Dutch Super Cup.
PSV have also been in action on Tuesday evening when they held a very strong Monaco side to a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round at Stade Louis II.
The outfit from Eindhoven will have a great chance to back up the very promising start to the season with a comprehensive victory here against the newly-promoted outfit.
If we look at Emmen’s pre-season results, it is very hard to see the visitors avoiding a catastrophic defeat on Saturday evening at Philips Stadion.
Emmen lost three of the previous four friendlies, conceding three goals in each of the losses to the likes of De Graafschap and Sparta Rotterdam.
