PSV vs Emmen Prediction & Match Preview

PSV vs Emmen
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 20 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).

The reigning champions are still impeccable at the start of the new Eredivisie campaign. They won eight from eight and are already healthy five points clear off first challengers Ajax at the very top of the standings. Saturday brings them a nice chance to keep the stellar form going and clinch another three-pointer as they play host to the recently-promoted Emmen side as Eredivisie returns to action after the international break.

The Peasants have really been ruthless so far in the season. They have an incredible 30-3 goal difference after eight rounds. They bagged as many as 16 goals without conceding a single in last four league wins, a streak which includes a demolishing 3-0 victory over Ajax a month ago.

PSV vs Emmen: Head-to-head

The two teams will play each other for the first time ever on Saturday evening.

PSV vs Emmen: Prediction

Emmen sit in the bottom half of the league standings with two wins, two draws and four defeats so far in the season. They won’t come into this tie in the highest of spirits after losing two and drawing one of past three league outings.

Dick Lukkien’s troops allowed as many as five goals in last two games against Heracles and Fortuna Sittard revealing way too many holes at the back. Such holes will be exploited heavily by high quality attackers in PSV’s ranks.

The hosts have an amazing firepower on display with the likes of Hirving Lozano, Luuk de Jong and Gaston Pereiro. This trio combined as many as 18 goals in eight games so far and they will no doubts have plenty of room to create up front on the occasion here.

The only question is how many goals will end up in Emmen’s net here. We bet the number will easily exceed two and we’ll go with PSV to win by three or more goals difference at the odds of 1.85 as the main betting option here.
