PSV Eindhoven vs Fortuna Sittard: Prediction
It has been a difficult four days for PSV with their 4-0 loss at Sporting on Thursday ending their chances of Europa League knockouts. Then on Sunday, PSV were held to a 1-1 draw at Emmen, which leaves them 13 points off Ajax and seven behind AZ.
Mark van Bommel, under severe pressure with his future hanging by a thread insisted that he can turn it around.
At home, PSV have been decent enough. In seven games, five wins, one draw and a defeat with a GD of 18:9. Half of conceded goals came from AZ (0-4). Since that shameful endeavor, PSV had one more outing in front of home crowd, winning 2-1 against Heerenveen.
Fortuna is doing as well as it can be expected from them, sitting on the outskirts of relegation zone and flirting with it. And if you thought they were bad away from home last year, this time they’ve outdone themselves. One point, five goals scored, twenty-five conceded. Worst team on the road in the Eredivisie.
Van Osch and Lammers are PSV’s long-term absentees while Fortuna will be missing Dammers, Dianessy and Leandro Fernandes.
Since we all expect PSV to win, I’m going with goals.
I’m leaning towards Half with most goals: 2nd Half. PSV had eight cases like that in previous twelve league games. Fortuna follows a similar trend (seven in eleven). Last two encounters between these ended up same way.
It’s worth putting few bucks on Fortuna to Score Exactly 1 Goal. Boeren have conceded at least a goal in last seven games while Fortuna scored at least once in five out of last six games.
