PSV Eindhoven vs Go Ahead EaglesDutch Eredivisie, KO: 17:45 Dec 23, 2021, Philips Stadion
The task for PSV is to strengthen their grip at the top of the Dutch Eredivisie as they host Go Ahead Eagles on Thursday. They have been imperious this session and are expected to make light work of the Eagles, who have found things difficult in recent weeks.
PSV Eindhoven are still setting the pace in the Eredivisie but can afford no slip-ups with champions Ajax just one point behind. In truth, they are showing no signs of slowing down and have claimed six wins and a draw from their last seven league matches.
Roger Schmidt’s men head into Thursday’s clash off the back of a 4-1 victory over RKC Waalwijk in their previous Eredivisie fixture. Yorbe Vertessen netted a brace while Cody Gakpo and Philipp Mwene were also on target.
Home form has been pivotal for PSV Eindhoven, who have been beaten just once on their own turf this season. They have won their last five matches at Philips Stadion and eased to a 4-1 victory over Utrecht in their previous home fixture.
Go Ahead Eagles sit just outside the top half of the table. They have a solid lead over the bottom three but are too far away to challenge for much further off the table.
Things appear to be going downhill for Go Ahead Eagles, who have claimed just one win from their last four matches. Kees van Wonderen’s men were beaten 2-0 at home by NEC in their previous Eredivisie fixture.
Go Ahead Eagles have struggled on their travels and have claimed just three wins from their last 11 Eredivisie matches, stretching to last season.
