Jong PSV form and stats

Jong PSV have played three Eerste Divisie home games so far, perhaps enough to set expectations for the season. In that case, only 3 points from these matches could be a signal of rough times ahead.

In their previous game, the manager P. Uneken led his Jong PSV to a defeat in the Eerste Divisie match away at FC Volendam. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Sportcomplex De Herdgang. Ahead of that match, Jong PSV won a home game hosting Telstar (3-0).

Jong were outplayed and humiliated in their previous game, as mentioned in the paragraph above. They will need to reinstall their confidence before this one.

Jong are traveling soon after this match as the Eerste Divisie match at Graafschap awaits in three days.

Jong PSV have proved capable of finding the net in their games here at Sportcomplex De Herdgang with 5 goals in 3 league matches. Defensively there's plenty of potential for improvement as Jong have allowed the opposition to score 8 goals here at Sportcomplex De Herdgang.

NEC form and stats

2 wins, 0 draws and 2 losses. That’s the product of NEC playing as the away team in the Eerste Divisie this season.

It's the second away game in a row for NEC, but there's smiles all around after the 4-1 victory versus Jong Utrecht (placed 18th) in the Eerste Divisie last time out. A home win before that, celebrating 6-0 vs FC Eindhoven.

After this away game NEC return home for a Eerste Divisie game against Go Ahead Eagles. That game is only three sleeps after this.

NEC are not goal shy away from home in the league, finding the net 7 times in 4 away games so far. As for defending, NEC rarely keep clean sheets as they have conceded 6 goals from these away matches.

Head 2 Head
