PSV Eindhoven vs Heracles
Date: Saturday, 15th October, 2016
Kick-off: 18:45 UK
Venue: Philips Stadium, Eindhoven.
PSV are already seven points behind Feyenoord at the top of the table and they will be desperate to snatch a home victory over Heracles, to keep up with the challenge. They simply must win this type of matches, since Heracles are one of the weakest teams in the competition, and anything but a confident home win on Saturday evening at the Philips Stadium would represent a major upset.
PSV are winless in two consecutive matches, including the Champions League away game at Rostov, and they will surely be looking to get back on track. The attacking line is functioning great as Phillip Cocu has a decent potential with De Jong, Propper and Pereiro up front.
Heracles on the other side managed to avoid a defeat in two back to back matches, having played two draws with Groningen and Twente.
