Twente had all the chances to walk away with something more in the previous Eredivisie game played last Saturday, but the side only took a point in a game away from home against Roda following 1:1 result.
Must be said that they were bit better at start and eventually took the lead in 53rd minute with a goal from midfielder Vuckic, however once they took the lead the side stood very defensive oriented. Their hosts had way better chances in the second halftime and actually dominated it – but were only able to level up the result towards the end of the clash via Schahin in 88th minute – almost surely deserving more in the process.
This was third consecutive draw for Twente, as the side remains also undefeated in last four Eredivisie matches, but still being only leveled up at sixteenth position (play-out position) at the table together with NAC Breda.
Hosts should be playing in 3-5-2 formation with Boere and Assaidi as forwards. They will miss central defender Stefan Thesker (11/3), but also defensive midfielder Danny Holla (14/2) and offensive midfielder Luciano Slagveer (13/1).
PSV secured their third victory in Eredivisie in a row last Sunday afternoon, as they walked away with a narrow 2:1 victory on the road to Heracles. They had much more of the ball possession and chances created, probably deserving to get much easier victory, as the three pointer was taken in even more difficult way than what the final result shows.
They took the lead during the additional time in the first halftime via Bergwijn, while hosts leveled up in 66th minute from a penalty kick taken by Hardeveld. They deserved the victory long before the end, but only managed to seal it with a goal in third minute of additional time scored by de Jong.
The side continues to lead the table with five points more than their closest followers from Ajax and surely aim to get all three points in this one. Away from home they have strong 7-1-2 record but have won only one in last three and need to prove something here.
Guests are set to continue in their usual 4-3-3 formation with Lozano, Bergwijn and Jong as forwards. There is no reasons for manager Phillip Cocu to make some changes for this one, since he has no absentees.
~ PSV Eindhoven have scored at least 2 goals in 8 of their last 9 matches against Twente.
PSV secured late victory last time out against Heracles on the road and I believe that the players are determined not to risk once again and avoid problems this time. Twenty is anything but impressing all season long and should be able to stay competitive for whole ninety minutes this time.
Bet: PSV -1 AH
