PSV Eindhoven vs Fortuna Sittard
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 3rd February 2019
Kick-off at 13.30 UK/ 14.30 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
Make some way, for the champions are coming. Seldom do these kinds of dominations occur in football leagues, at least in the major European divisions. The Lightbulbs have secured twice as many points as Europe League-hopeful Venlo.
The Fortunezen can end up either in the top-most tier or the bottom-most, just in a matter of weeks, as not many points separate these spots, except for the ones like Ajax and PSV, who were not polite enough to hang back and wait for the others. Just three points prevent the team from Limburg from adorning a European position, while, take off five, and they are in the relegation zone.
I tell you, this Eredivisie, it’s a funny league. Well, funny for us, the viewers at least.

PSV Eindhoven vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
The Peasants are by far the best team in the league. They have recorded 52 points from their 19 games so far, dropping just four in the process. Also, get this, 16 of the total 18 teams have not even breached 40 points yet, and 14 of those are yet to reach 30.
They have also scored the most number of goals at home, and the second-most goals overall. Apart from Ajax, no other team is even in the vicinity of raising a challenge in terms of goal-scoring to this set of players. While our hosts have scored 64 goals in total, the third-most is 42 by Feyenoord.
The Farmers also remain the only team to boast a 100% winning record at home. They have not even trailed at a single half time so far while winning each one of their second half at home.
On the contrary, the team from Limburg were winless in four of their last five games and lost five of their last six on the road. They have also managed just four wins in their last 16 ties away from home.
The hosts are easily going to win this tie while keeping a clean sheet. They have conceded just thrice at home in all of their league season, and frankly, Rene Eijer’s men are not capable enough to add to that. Also, expect at least two goals from the hosts in the latter half of the game, where they are at their menacing best.
