🗞️ Team News: PSV Eindhoven
Mauro Júnior (Knee Injury) and Armando Obispo (Knee Injury) aren’t available for PSV Eindhoven gaffer Ruud van Nistelrooy.
It seems likely that Rood-witten could kick off with a 4-2-3-1 formation in the match featuring Walter Benitez, Philipp Mwene, Andre Ramalho Silva, Jarrad Branthwaite, Patrick van Aanholt, Joey Veerman, Ibrahim Sangare, Anwar El-Ghazi, Guus Til, Xavi Simons and Luuk de Jong.
ℹ️ Team News: SC Heerenveen
SC Heerenveen boss Kees van Wonderen has some current player fitness concerns. Sven van Beek (Achilles tendon problems), Andries Noppert (Muscle Injury) and Joost van Aken (Knee Injury) will not be playing here.
We’re of the thinking that De Superfriezen seem likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 formation, starting the game with Xavier Mous, Milan van Ewijk, Jeffrey Bruma, Syb van Ottele, Mats Koehlert, Thom Haye, Anas Tahiri, Simon Olsson, Osame Sahraoui, Antoine Colassin and Sydney van Hooijdonk.
We’re of the opinion that PSV Eindhoven will probably dominate possession and create several successful chances.
Conversely, SC Heerenveen might well find it a difficult task to score but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be getting the chances to score, too.
Accordingly, we see a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning margin for PSV Eindhoven when all’s said and done.
