A sequence of effective performances by the Jong PSV defensive players has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their last 6 outings overall. During the same period, their forwards have scored 14. That kind of trend might not be carried forward into this next game, of course.

Team News: Telstar
Kick Groot (Knock), Hossein Zamani (Knock), Richelor Sprangers (Knock) and Yaël Liesdek (Knock) will not be taking part for Telstar manager Andries Jonker.
Team News: Jong PSV
With a completely healthy group available for selection, Jong PSV boss Peter Uneken doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash.
It looks to us that Telstar have it within them to stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
However, Jong PSV will be up against it to score themselves but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be managing to get on the scoresheet here.
We’re therefore anticipating a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning score for Telstar at the end of the match.
