Jong PSV form and stats

Jong PSV's struggle is real here at Sportcomplex De Herdgang with only 10 points collected from 12 Eerste Divisie games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 2-4-6.

Prior to that was the away defeat visiting Roda JC Kerkrade (1-5).

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Jong have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found six matches with the results: Won two, drawn two and lost two.

There will be little rest for Jong after this match as they are travelling to Go Ahead Eagles for a Eerste Divisie game in only three days.

The Jong fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 14 in 12 matches. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Jong PSV defense is not exactly impregnable. 20 goals conceded from 12 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.
