As we enter the third week of games in the Eredivisie, Will Burns returns with his selections and like all his tips, you will not see a ‘best bet’ under evens – good luck!
Saturday 22nd August
SC HEERENVEEN vs. PSV – 18:45 BST
Reigning Eredivisie champions PSV looked dominant last weekend in the 2-0 win over FC Groningen and tonight away to the also undefeated Heerenveen, I expect more of the same. Although, Dwight Lodeweges side are well capable of finding a goal and both keepers should see plenty action.
Heerenveen have had PSV’s number the past three seasons at the Abe Lenstra Stadion, defeating the Eindhoven side the last three occasions at home. With the addition of target man, Mitchell te Vrede in the summer from Feyenoord, to go with the attacking wingers of Sam Larsson and Luciano Slagveer, I see Heerenveen being a major threat in this match.
Philip Cocu has another great squad at his disposal and with Andres Guadrado’s tremendous defensive midfield play which allows Adam Maher to roam in a new number ten role, PSV look like they are missing the efforts of Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum. Luuk de Jong is still in good form and Luciano Narsingh notched twice in last week’s win over Groningen, PSV have plenty goals in their locker.
For our best bet this weekend, PSV to win with Over 3.5 Goals is valued at 11/4 at Bet 365 and I can envisage PSV grabbing a high scoring 3-2 or a 3-1 win. If you want to play it safe, if Cocu’s men to win with Both Teams to Score is valued at 21/10.
