PSV Eindhoven vs Feyenoord
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 24th February 2019
Kick-off at 13.30 UK/ 14.30 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
The most anticipated game of this weekend. Giant-killers Feyenoord takes on the absolute best of the Netherlands. Unless Ajax is in the mix, it really can’t get better than this.
Feyenoord really doesn’t stand a chance for the title, or even for a top-two finish. But it’s not that. Pragmatic objectives are out the window for this fixture. It’s emotions at stake. It’s pride. These two sides have been the pillars of Dutch football from time immemorial, and neither would even want to dream about losing to the other.
The settings have also been set perfectly for his encounter. While PSV holds the pole position in the table, with electrifying performances in the offensive as well as defensive halves of the pitch, their visitors demolished the high-flying Ajax just a few match-days back, by putting six past them.

PSV Eindhoven vs Feyenoord Prediction
Eindhoven holds a perfect record at home this season, winning all their league matches so far. They would give anything to keep that going, and especially against this rival. They have scored the second-most number of goals in home-ties, at a rate of almost four per fixture, with just Ajax outscoring them. They have also registered two or more goals in their last eight games in a row. When these are coupled to the fact that Feyenoord lost their last three away ties in succession, along with PSV recording 12 of the last 15 wins at this venue, the chances for them to take the three points becomes very high.
But the domination of the hosts takes the backstage for a moment considering the rivalry between these two proud sides. Also, Feyenoord will try to make it two out of two after humiliating Ajax. They will go all in, and with them registering four or more goals in four of their last seven match-ups, it’s hard to see them not finding the back of the net at least once.
