PSV Eindhoven vs Feyenoord
Netherlands – Super Cup
Date: Saturday, 4 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion, Eindhoven.
PSV and Feyenoord are set to raise the curtain to the new season in the Dutch football on Saturday when they will battle it out for the Super Cup trophy at Philips Stadion in Eindhoven.
Interestingly, it was just Feyenoord who eliminated the Peasants en route to the KNVB Beker silverware last year, beating them 2-0 in the quarterfinal of the competition.
However, PSV won the league and they did it in some fashion. The Peasants’ crown never came in question as they finished four points clear off Ajax in second in spite of failing to win a single of last three games of the campaign.
PSV enter the new season with a different manager, but same ambitions. It is a familiar face, Mark van Bommel, who took over Philip Cocu on the bench.
Van Bommel can be thrilled with how the team looked under his guidance in the off-season as the Peasants will come into this on the back of three straight wins against the likes of Galatasaray, Olympiacos Piraeus and Valencia.
PSV Eindhoven vs Feyenoord: Head-to-head
Feyenoord won the cup clash, but PSV came on top in both league meetings in the previous term of Eredivisie.
Overall, the Peasants lead the H2H tie by two victories ahead of the 69th clash with Feyenoord.
PSV were particularly dominant in matches in Eindhoven where they won 17, drew 4 and lost 8 of 29 games against Dew club aan de Maas.
PSV Eindhoven vs Feyenoord Prediction
Feyenoord have also been thriving in the final third during the pre-season. They bagged ten goals in last three friendlies against Basel, Fenerbahce and Levante. Jens Toornstra and Steven Berghuis were on target in the final test on Sunday when the Dutch outfit saw off Levante 2-1 at home.
Luuk de Jong and Gaston Pereiro scored goals in PSV’s 2-1 win over Valencia last weekend. Mark van Bommel has a very exciting list of players in the final third and the Peasants will surely create lots of opportunities in front of Feyenoord’s goal here.
Both teams have been enjoying a fabulous attacking form of late and we just have to back the BTTS option at the 1.66 odds here. Braver tipsters can try with PSV to win & BTTS at the odds of 3.75.
