PSV Eindhoven vs Twente
Date: Sunday, 5th November 2017
Kick-off at 15:45 UK/ 16:45 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
On Sunday evening, the in-form hosts welcome an out of form Twente side struggling in 13. The visitors have recorded just 2 wins in their last five games in all competitions, with the hosts seeking their 10th consecutive win in all competitions.
PSV are hitting top form at just the right time. The Eredivisie leaders have not dropped points since their shocking loss to Heerenveen in September. The hosts have established a healthy 5-points lead ahead of Ajax in second, and would want to keep their safety net.
The recent PSV form is built on their good injury record thus far, with back-up goalkeeper Luuk Koopmans the only one to miss out.
On their part however, Twente have to contend with the absence of midfielder Danny Holla. Midfield Thomas Lam and defender Haris Vuckic will have to overcome various issues to make the match day squad.
PSV Eindhoven vs Twente: Head-to-head
This fixture is traditionally one of the highest-scoring encounters in the Eredivisie. Indeed, both teams scored in each of the last 4 fixtures, stretching back to April 2015.
The 2 most recent games have both ended in a scoring draw, with PSV winning the other two.
PSV have not lost to Twente at the Philips Stadion in 4 years since a 2-6 goal fest in March 2012. There have been 4 wins and a draw for the home team over this period.
PSV Eindhoven vs Twente: Predictions
Bet365 are backing PSV at 1.16 to continue the impressive winning run with a seventh win on the bounce. Punters can also back Twente to record a giant-killing result at 15.00. Well, that may be a bridge too far.
A more achievable target would be to back both teams to score at 1.75, or even the game to yield 3 or more goals at 1.28.
In fact, adventurous punters may yet get a bargain at 1.61 for Hirving Lozano (9 goals in 8 games) and 1.72 (8 goals in 10 games) to score at any time during Sunday’s visit of FC Twente.
With this fixture producing plenty of goals in recent encounters, odds of 2.25 are very generous for PSV to win and both teams to score. This selection would have won in 3 of PSV’s last 5 games, while Twente have failed to score only twice in their last 5 games.
For my final verdict on this match: Back PSV to win at home, but Twente have been very productive with their dangerous attacking play and we could have another potential goal rush on our hands come Sunday.
