Following an unlucky draw with Den Haag where they had 35 goal attempts, PSV will be looking to keep their title hopes alive with a win over Vitesse. The Red and Whites are six points behind league leaders Ajax in the Eredivisie standings, meaning that this has to go done as somewhat of a must-win game for the hosts. Donyell Malen, who scored a brace in the 2-2 draw with Den Haag, will be the man to watch in the home team.
The likes of Ledezma, Madueke, Romero, and Viergever remain in the recovery room, while Mario Gotze is a major doubt. The Vitas, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team collecting only one point in total from the previous four league fixtures. Considering that Vitesse failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Twente, home win should be considered.
Heerenveen and Groningen face each other at Abe Lenstra Stadion in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. De Superfriezen continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their third consecutive triumph at home ground. Top scorer Henk Veerman should be recalled to the starting XI after he was rested in a 3-1 loss at AZ. Groningen on the other hand, were beaten by both Vitesse and Heracles in the previous two away games in the national championship. Since Heerenveen have been producing fine displays at their Abe Lenstra Stadion of late, I predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Norway international Jorgen Strand Larsen is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors.
