PSV Eindhoven prepare for this match following on from a 2-2 Eredivisie draw vs Ajax.
The only player to score from PSV Eindhoven was Eran Zahavi (2', 21'). Quincy Promes (40') and Antony (65') scored for Ajax.
Rood-witten have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets of late, but they have also found ways to hit the back of the net themselves. Over their last 6 matches, Rood-witten have been punished defensively in 5 of them in addition to getting on the scoresheet in 6 of those matches. Let’s find out if that trend will be continued on here.
A look at their previous results shows us that PSV Eindhoven:
- have not beaten AZ in their last 2 matches in the league.
- are unbeaten in their previous 13 home league matches. What a fortress they have created.
Previously, AZ drew 1-1 in the Eredivisie tie with FC Zwolle.
The only scorer from AZ was Fredrik Midtsjø (67'). Pelle Clement (9') was the scorer for FC Zwolle.
AZ have been a threat going forward in the lead-up to this encounter, having scored 15 goals in their previous 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that AZ have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same clashes.
Looking at the pre-match facts, AZ:
- are undefeated in their previous 9 league matches away from home. What a good run they have put together.
- are without an away win for the past 2 league matches.

Team News: PSV Eindhoven
Richard Ledezma (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Armando Obispo (Knock), Marco van Ginkel (Knee Injury), Maximiliano Romero (Knee Surgery) and Ryan Thomas (Knock) will not be able to play for PSV boss Roger Schmidt.
Team News: AZ
AZ manager Pascal Jansen has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Dani de Wit (Ankle Injury) and Jeremy Helmer (Leg Injury) will miss out on this game.
In our opinion, AZ have it in them to break down this PSV Eindhoven team, however that is unlikely to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re going for a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 winning margin for PSV Eindhoven when all is said and done. Looking forward to this.
