On 20-03-2022, the 27th round of Eredivisie matches arrives at the Philips Stadion, where PSV Eindhoven will face Fortuna Sittard in a game that promises to be exciting. In addition to the national championship, PSV Eindhoven participates this season in the KNVB Cup, Johan Cruyff Cup, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Conference League.
PSV is averaging 2.42 goals per game in the current league. PSV have averaged 2.31 points per home game this season in the Eredivisie, while Fortuna Sittard has averaged 0.62 points per away game. PSV won 4 games (Sparta Rotterdam, Go Ahead Eagles, Heracles Almelo, Utrecht) and lost 0, and 1 match ended in a draw with Copenhagen. In terms of discipline, PSV received 33 yellow cards and 0 red cards, committing 8.27 fouls (on average) in every match played.
PSV Eindhoven has always been in good shape, scoring 100% in PSV Eindhoven’s last six games. During the previous six Fortuna Sittard games, Fortuna Sittard scored six times at home, thus scoring an average of 1 goal per game. Fortuna Sittard failed to score a single win while PSV Eindhoven was simply better than them, winning 100% of their games played. PSV Eindhoven is now two points behind leaders AFC Ajax, and Fortuna is just above the relegation zone with two points clear.
Despite losing to Ajax last month Ajax, PSV remains the closest rivals to the title in the standings. PSV Eindhoven has only lost one of their previous nine matches in all competitions. Overall, I expect PSV to continue their pursuit of glory on all fronts in style here with a convincing but amusing 3-1 victory over Fortuna Sittard. PSV have averaged 2.31 points per home game this season in the Eredivisie. In comparison, Fortuna Sittard has averaged 0.62 points per away game. 11 of PSV’s last 13 victories in all competitions have also been over 2.5 goals scored.
Ajax needed another late goal to win the Eredivisie match (2-3 against Cambuur), and this is creating form uncertainty. We are in the second part of the Eredivisie season, and in the standings, there is a difference in fortunes between Cambuur and Ajax. Ajax has barely missed away, winning four of their last five games. At the start of this meeting, Ajax was unbeaten by SC Cambuur in their away games in their previous 4 Eredivisie games. Cambuur was ready for a draw, but Ajax was too good in the attacking third, making it pretty uncomfortable to defend. Gravenberch scored in the 90+2nd minute to grab all three points.
Ajax and PSV both have won 20 games from their 26 games played. But PSV has lost five matches while Ajax was defeated only thrice. The final phase of the Eredivisie will be interesting to see as two points separate the top two teams.
Who do you think will win the League?
