PSV Eindhoven vs Twente Prediction

PSV narrowly avoided defeat the last match-day, as they took on Venlo. The former were on the road, and were trailing by 1-0 even into the injury time, before the equalizer came in the 90+2nd minute.

Meanwhile, Twente were held to a 0-0 draw in front of their home crowd the previous game week, by Groningen.

This Saturday, despite their stumbles this season, make no mistake that PSV are the clear favorites. Last season, while they were in the hunt for the Eredivisie title with Ajax, Twente were not even in the picture, and were plying their trade in the Eerste Divisie.

Moreover, PSV have been one of the two best teams in the league for quite a long time, and on top of that, they have the home advantage as well.

On the other hand, Twente, who are yet to find their footing in the top flight, are asked to go against one of the titans of the competition, and that too while being slowed down by the away handicap.

Moreover, PSV were unbeaten in six of their last seven overall fixtures, and were invincible in 14 of their last 15 home fixtures. This sole loss had come against the second-placed Alkmaar.

On the contrary, Twente are on a run of seven winless match-ups, of which five were losses, and they are on a run of six straight winless league fixtures on the road (and five of these were losses).

Moreover, PSV recorded the last seven h2h wins, and the last they lost against this opponent was back in 2013. They have also scored two or more goals against Twente in 13 of the last 16 h2h clashes, and at this venue, they won five of the previous six h2h encounters.

Furthermore, PSV scored two or more goals at this venue in six of the preceding seven h2h battles, and only twice have they lost in front of the home crowd against Twente since 2001.

Taking into account all these observations, we arrive to the consensus that PSV are the overwhelming favorites this Sunday.
