In their last six outings, Helmond Sport have amassed a tally of 11 goals. Helmond have also managed to score on each one of those occasions. Over that period, they’ve had 7 goals go against them. That pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward here, of course.

Team News: Jong PSV
Jong PSV manager Peter Uneken will be thankful to have no fitness worries whatsoever before this clash owing to a fully injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Helmond Sport
Helmond manager Wil Boessen has a number of players out of action. Aaron Bastiaans (Thigh Problems), Jessy Hendrikx (Groin Injury) and Dani Theunissen (Cruciate Ligament Injury) are not able to play. Boyd Reith will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We feel that Helmond Sport and Jong PSV should both be able to score more than once here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and there should be goals with a draw being quite a realistic outcome. We’re therefore anticipating a really entertaining tussle with a score draw at the end of the match.
