Team News: AZ
Owen Wijndal (Groin Injury) and Jeremy Helmer (Leg Injury) are not available for AZ boss Pascal Jansen.
Team News: PSV Eindhoven
PSV Eindhoven boss Roger Schmidt has to currently contend with reduced team options. Maximiliano Romero (Knee Surgery), Richard Ledezma (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Maxime Delanghe (Shoulder Injury), Davy Pröpper (Unknown Injury) and Cody Gakpo (Unknown Injury) will not be playing here.
When taking all factors into account, AZ have the firepower to breach the defence of this PSV Eindhoven team, but one goal isn’t likely to be enough to avoid a loss.
We therefore reckon that it will be a 1-2 winning margin for PSV Eindhoven after the 90. Hopefully this is a good one.
