PSV Eindhoven vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction & Match Preview
PSV Eindhoven vs Sparta Rotterdam
Date: 7 January 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
PSV Eindhoven suffered their first home loss of the season in the very last league fixture before the World Cup break, falling 0-1 to AZ Alkmaar.
It was also the team’s second defeat in the last four league outings. As a consequence, PSV have dropped to the third position in the Eredivisie table.
Leaders Feyenoord are just three points away, though, meaning it’s anyone’s game at this stage of the season.
PSV lost their main star Cody Gakpo in December as the Dutch World Cup star made a move to Liverpool after brilliant performances in Qatar.
Nevertheless, heads coach Ruud van Nistelrooy is not too worried about Gakpo’s departure. He still has plenty of attacking talent in his ranks.
The recent friendlies against very strong Italian Serie A side have confirmed PSV’s strength. The Dutch heavyweights bagged five goals in the back-to-back wins over Sassuolo and AC Milan.
They were especially impressive in the final check, beating I Rossoneri 3-0 last Friday. Young English striker Chukwunonso Madueke stole the show by completing a brace on the occasion. Could he get the chance on Saturday?
Sparta Rotterdam are enjoying one of the best top-flight campaigns in a while. They hold the 6th position in the Eredivisie ladder after 14 opening rounds.
Maurice Steijn’s men will travel to Eindhoven on the back of two wins and a draw in the last three league games before the World Cup break.
PSV to win & Both Teams To Score is the way to go at the 2.87 odds. We are also very much tempted by the 3.40 odds offered for Noni Madueke to score anytime for the hosts, following his brace in a friendly against AC Milan last Friday.
