PSV to win
PSV have dominated Utrecht in the past; they’ve won 15 of the last 20 meetings between these teams. As a matter of fact, PSV lost just once in their last 11 clashes with Utrecht; they won eight and drew two of those 11 games. In the same vein, Utrecht have not enjoyed the best of form lately; they’ve won just one of their last four games. On the other hand, PSV have seven wins in their last nine games; they are unbeaten in those nine games. Considering the form of both teams, coupled with their head to head record; we’re predicting a win for PSV.
We’ll see goals for both sides
Despite their form, Utrecht know how to score goals; they found the net in five of their last six games, with 10 goals scored in that stretch. Conversely, Utrecht have seen their defence breached in four of their last five games. On the other hand, PSV are coming off a 4:4 draw; they’ve scored in all of their last 17 games across all competitions. Additionally, Roger Schmidt’s men allowed at least one goal in all of their last six games. Both teams scored in four of Utrecht’s last five, and in all of PSV’s last six games; and on that note, both teams should score.
Going over 2.5
Encounters between Utrecht and PSV have seen a lot of goals on both ends; both teams scored in four of their last five clashes. In fact, nine of the last 10 meetings between these teams saw more than three goals scored. PSV have been one of the highest scoring teams in the Eredivisie this season; only league leaders Ajax have scored more goals than PSV. PSV’s games tend to be on the high-scoring side; all of their last six games went above the 2.5 goal margin. With this in mind, this will likely be a high-scoring game.
