Team News: FC Groningen
Radinio Balker (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Daleho Irandust (Unknown Injury) and Mo El Hankouri (Unknown Injury) will not be able to play for FC Groningen boss Danny Buijs. Neraysho Kasanwirjo cannot play in this game through suspension.
It’s our opinion that Trots van het Noorden will probably use the 4-2-3-1 formation in the match, handing starts to Peter Leeuwenburgh, Damil Dankerlui, Bjorn Meijer, Mike te Wierik, Bart van Hintum, Tomas Suslov, Laros Duarte, Cyril Ngonge, Michael de Leeuw, Daniel van Kaam and J. Strand Larsen.
Team News: PSV Eindhoven
PSV Eindhoven boss Roger Schmidt has not got a full squad to pick from. Ryan Thomas (Knee Injury), Eran Zahavi (Knee Injury), Noni Madueke (Muscle Injury) and André Ramalho (Ankle Surgery) won’t be making appearances.
We’re of the thinking that Rood-witten might play in a 4-2-1-3 formation, starting the game with Joel Drommel, Jordan Teze, Olivier Boscagli, Armando Obispo, Mauro Junior, Erick Gutierrez, Marco van Ginkel, Mario Goetze, Ritsu Doan, Cody Gakpo and Maximiliano Romero.
We feel that FC Groningen have it in them to score a goal against this PSV Eindhoven lineup, however a single goal may not quite be enough to give them the result that they want.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a narrow 1-2 winning score for PSV Eindhoven at the end of this one. It should be a decent one.
