Competition: Netherlands Eredivisie
Competition: Sun 18.October
Match begins: 14:45 (UTC)
Venue: MAC³PARK Stadion (12500 seats)

The Eredivisie league table might not tell the truth so early on, but it's the best truth we have so far. PEC Zwolle and PSV are placed 9th and 2nd respectively.

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

Zwolle's stadium, MAC³PARK Stadion, has a artifical turf surface. PSV have grass on their own stadium. This might or might not make a difference, and to help evaluate that we give you the recent performance numbers for PSV when playing on artifical turf; 9 wins, 2 draws and 0 losses from eleven matches. They have scored 31 goals in these games and conceded 5.

PEC Zwolle form and stats

OK but not perfect. That could be the conclusion for PEC Zwolle's two home games in the Eredivisie so far this season, having collected 3 points here at MAC³PARK Stadion.

Zwolle's last game was hosting Sparta Rotterdam (placed 17th) and winning 4-0. Before that, Zwolle had a home game versus Sparta Rotterdam which ended with a victory 4-0.

As indicated by the result mentioned above, Zwolle played a great game against Sparta Rotterdam and beat them comfortably. Expectations are high for this one.

PEC Zwolle has scored 4 goals so far and conceded 2 goals from 2 home games. These are numbers from the league only.

PSV form and stats

PSV are still undefeated on their travels in the Eredivisie. They have only played two games though, winning one and drawing the other.

Impressive finishing from Donyell Malen and Noni Madueke secured the home win 2-0 against Fortuna Sittard in their previous game. Before that one, a nice away victory 2-0 at Rosenborg.

A new game in only four days for PSV, the Europa League home match versus Granada. Busy days.

4 goals so far away for PSV, while their defence has allowed the opposition to score 2. All from 2 league matches away.

Head 2 Head

Head-to-head totals (for the last ten meetings): Zwolle won zero games, zero matches ended with a draw and PSV has ten wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: nine / one
