Dutch Giants Reenact Timeless Derby as PSV Takes on Feyenoord

Invincible Feyenoord faces its toughest opponent yet at Philips Stadium (3:45 p.m UK Time)

PSV has been dominating the Dutch championship for several years in a row and not even Ajax proved to be a serious contender for the title. This season, they will have to deal with a fast rising star as Feyenoord tries to recapture its former glory and secure another Champions League berth.

The Critical Role of Home Pitch Advantage

PSV has won both games played at home in August and is entitled to be optimistic that home pitch advantage will once again play a decisive role. On the road they struggled heavily and even though they managed to score 3 times in the two rounds of the current season, their defensive was heavily tested.

Feyenoord is likely to come out firing on all cylinders as this is one of the few teams that have a positive track record against the reigning champions. Back in the day, they used to be a major contender for the trophy although they only managed to win seven times in Eindhoven in a total of 26 games.

All Eyes on Veteran Kuijt

One of the explanations for Feyenoord’s resurgence is that they strengthened the offensive lineup and once again use an aggressive 4-3-3 starting formation. Kuijt spent a lot of time in the spotlight this season and already scored three goals, so it is only fair to say that he will be the main threat for PSV. When teams travel to Eindhoven, they usually defend with all lines and rarely feature more than one striker, but Feyenoord is likely to pair Kuijt up with Basacigoklu and Kazim.

Bet365 sports offers spectacular odds of 15/4 to those punters who are bold enough as to back the underdogs, confident that the tide will change and PSV’s dominance will eventually end. Conservative gamblers will have to settle for odds of 8/11 if they choose to back the home side to prevail once again.
