Head to head
A review of their past head to head meetings going back to 22/02/2014 tells us that these encounters have not been fruitful for NEC. They’ve not managed to get themselves any wins whatsoever while PSV Eindhoven have just been stronger than them, running out winners in 100 per cent of those ties.
A sum of 19 goals were scored between the two sides in this period, with 16 of them from Rood-witten and 3 being from NEC. That’s an average goals per game of 3.17.

Team News: PSV Eindhoven
Noni Madueke (Muscle Injury), Olivier Boscagli (Knee Injury), Phillipp Mwene (Unknown Injury), Carlos Vinícius (Hamstring Injury), Armando Obispo (Unknown Injury) and Ryan Thomas (Knee Injury) are not available for PSV Eindhoven boss Roger Schmidt.
Team News: NEC
NEC manager Rogier Meijer has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Édgar Barreto (Knee Injury) and Pedro Ruiz (Knee Surgery) will miss out on this game.
We’ve got the feeling that PSV Eindhoven will most probably stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
In contrast, NEC may well find it hard to get a goal of their own but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be seeing enough of the ball to score, too.
Our tip is for a decent 3-1 victory for PSV Eindhoven after 90 minutes.
