PSV Eindhoven vs FC Groningen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 26th January 2019
Kick-off at 18.45 UK/ 19.45 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
The Lightbulbs will be lining up once more to destroy whatever poor souls that had the misfortune to stumble in front of them.
In fact, it’s my thinking that Eredivisie should organize a new league competition for 16 of the teams other than Ajax and PSV. And maybe add Feyenoord in the mix too. The rest of the teams and the fans would be eternally thankful. Because it just is not natural to have a 20-point difference between the first and fourth-placed teams at this point of a league tournament. It’s an abomination.
The Green-White Army is just two points away from the relegation cut-off as of now, and by the time the final whistle is blown on Saturday, I think we can expect them to stop worrying about it and accept the relegation tag once more.
PSV Eindhoven vs FC Groningen Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last five h2h wins belong to Mark van Bommel’s men.
- 13 of the last 14 wins at this venue belong to the hosts.
- The Peasants scored two or more goals in nine of their last twelve home-ties.
- The Pride of the North has not scored a single goal at the Philips Stadion since 2015.
PSV Eindhoven vs FC Groningen Prediction
The Farmers have scored goals at an alarming rate of 3.44 per match, leading to 62 from just 18 games so far. At the Philips Stadion, the rate becomes even scary, at 4.00 goals per tie. That is a total of 36 goals from nine home-ties.
The performance of the team from Eindhoven, at their home, has been so exemplary that all they let past them in these nine fixtures, is just two goals. 36 goals in return for only two. Even the mighty Ajax cannot lay claim to such an achievement.
The Red and Whites have won every single league game they played at home. On the other hand, Danny Buij’s men have been winless in their last five away ties in a row, and in nine of the last ten.
The hosts will make light work of these opponents and record another big win at home. They have scored two or more goals in 15 of their last 19 home-ties and scored three or more in eight of their last nine league games in front of the home crowd.
I believe the hosts will score in both the halves and get to work early and find the net before the 20-minute mark.
