Utrecht vs PSV Eindhoven
Date: 13 March 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Galgenwaard.
Joey and Henk Veerman spent the first half of the Eredivisie season together in Heerenveen. They are now set to come across each other on the opposite sides as their new teams Utrecht and PSV are set to battle it out in the 26th round of the competition this Sunday at Stadion Galgenwaard.
Joey Veerman was on target for PSV last weekend in a 3-1 home victory over Heracles. The win kept Roger Schmidt’s men two points below leaders Ajax in the battle for the Eredivisie title.
PSV have generally been playing very well of late. They have won four consecutive league affairs, bagging as many as 13 goals in the process.
This phenomenal streak is about to be seriously challenged on Sunday against Utrecht who have been almost impossible to beat in their own backyard this season.
Utrecht have a fantastic home record of seven wins, four draws, and only one defeat (to Ajax) in twelve league games at Stadion Galgenwaard this season.
Rene Hake’s men will go into this tie on the back of two draws and one win in the last three outings. They were a much better side on the pitch in the last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Go Ahead Eagles but just couldn’t score more than one goal from 20 attempts on the occasion.
Utrecht vs PSV Eindhoven Head-to-head
- PSV have been the dominant force in the history of this matchup.
- They have won 16, drawn 9, and lost only 3 of the last 28 away clashes against Utrecht.
- PSV celebrated a demolishing 4-1 victory when these two teams locked horns in the return fixture in the first half of the season.
Utrecht vs PSV Eindhoven Prediction
We can see the value in backing the away win pick at the 1.90 odds here. This is a tough fixture for PSV indeed, but they will be highly motivated to keep ground on Ajax atop the Eredivisie ladder and they have both tradition and form (four straight league wins) to back them up on Sunday.
Since Utrecht have scored at least a goal in four of the last five H2H affairs and since they have a strong record at home this season, we will also back Both Teams To Score at the 1.61 odds.
