PSV Eindhoven vs Go Ahead Eagles
Date: 28 January 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:30 UK / 16:30 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
PSV Eindhoven’s title ambitions have suffered another big blow on Tuesday evening when Ruud van Nistelrooy’s men shockingly fell 1-0 away at relegation-threatened Emmen in the previous round of Eredivisie.
Mauro Junior got sent off just before the break at De Oude Meerdijk, leaving PSV significantly weaker in the second half of the affair.
The team from Eindhoven are now six points below leaders Feyenoord and they can ill afford any more slip-ups in the games to come.
The hosts will thus be highly motivated to boost up the confidence with a comprehensive victory over Go Ahead Eagles on Saturday afternoon at Philips Stadion.
The Eagles suffered a tough 1-4 home loss to the second-placed AZ Alkmaar, allowing the counterparts nine attempts on target on the occasion.
Given they are now up against the second-best attacking line in the country, there is not much to suggest a better outcome for them in Eindhoven.
We will particularly be looking at young wide forward Xavi Simons who has bagged nine goals so far in the season for PSV Eindhoven. He should have plenty of room to deliver here against the leaky Go Ahead Eagles’ back line.
Also, we have to say that PSV own a great home record of seven wins, one draw, and one defeat in nine Eredivisie fixtures at Philips Stadion this term.
