Twente vs PSV for the Dutch Eredivisie championship match on Saturday at De Grolsch Veste Stadium.
We go with another Eredivisie game on their first day between Twente (recently promoted) and PSV (current runner-up of the Eredivisie).
The newly promoted to Eredivisie, FC Twente faces a challenging game that can start slowly for them. The home team has scored only one goal in the first half in their last four league games against PSV at home. On two of those occasions, they lost both the first and second half without scoring.
Curiously and independently of whether they play at home or away, three of the last five matches in the first division between Twente and PSV have produced more than 3.5 total goals, while both teams scored in both halves. In each of that trio of high scoring matches, at least one of the two times has ended with a score of 1-1.
Runner-up last season, PSV had now won nine of its last ten away games at Eredivisie where they scored first (G9, E1) – the previous loss after doing so was in September 2015. Also, April 2012 remains the last time the PSV lost in the league to a newly promoted team.
Impressively, March 2018 remains the last time the PSV lost an Eredivisie match away from home to a team that finished 2018/19 out of the top four. Besides, four of PSV‘s recent five league victories have been by a margin of more than 2 goals and winning both halves on the road to success.
Players to follow: Peet Bijen records three goals in the first division for Twente (1.0 per game) have helped the team to achieve a record of G2, E1 in those games. He scored six times in the Eerste Divisie last season.
Steven Bergwijn has scored his first goal during the first 30 minutes in three of PSV‘s last five wins as a visitor to the Eredivisie.
