PSV Eindhoven vs FC Utrecht
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-off at 15:45 UK/ 16:45 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
With a 100% win record at home, PSV started the game against FC Utrecht on Sunday as clear favourites to snatch full-three points.
The head-coach Roger Schmidt had and still has some head-aches in the selection department with plenty of key players missing out with injuries, but this PSV team did exceptionally well to earn positive results in tough conditions.
In Eredivisie, they are third, 3 points behind the free scoring Ajax and surprise package Vitesse, make a perfect scenario to perform at top level on Sunday.
Utrecht are on a decent run as well, in the sense that they lost just 2 games this season. But they haven’t won a whole lot, only 2 so far with the remaining 6 ending in stalemates.
They come to this clash without a win in 6 with their latest three being stalemates. Also, they remain winless on the road this season, again 4 draws and scored in 4 of those 5 games.
