MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
Both sides are struggling, Jong PSV Eindhoven are still set to play whereas FC Eindhoven fell to a 3-1 defeat in Deventer against Go Ahead Eagles. They fell 1-0 behind after 25 minutes. Teenager Kay de Rooij equalized in the 68th minute, but the Eindhoven side had to allow goals in both the 80th and 90th minute which sees them lose 13 of 25 league games.
Jong PSV Eindhoven couldn’t end the struggles although it looked good against De Graafschap. They took the lead thanks to a Yorbe Vertessen goal in the 39th minute. De Graafschap equalized in the 53rd but it was Sekou Sidibe who gave Jong PSV Eindhoven the lead in the 85th minute looking set to win. The youngsters couldn’t hold on though and allowed the equalizer in the 88th minute and still lost as they allowed the third goal in the 90+3rd minute.
FC Eindhoven’s home league record is quite decent, winning 6, drawing 3 and losing 3 of their 12 home games. The Jong side have accumulated a mere four points from their twelve league games away from home. They have allowed goals against in all, and have lost their last three in a row. FC Eindhoven have won just one of their past ten league games but I can see them book a victory in this derby.
SECOND PREDICTION: CORRECT SCORE: 2-0
FC Eindhoven have scored twice in four of their six league home wins. I’m going for a 2-0 home win.
HEAD TO HEAD:
FC Eindhoven suffered a 2-1 defeat when they played against Jong PSV Eindhoven away from home in the league earlier this season.
