Draw: 5/2 (3.5) – 28.6%

Player to watch – Othman Boussaid

Last weekend, Othman Boussaid became just the eighth player to score against PSV in the Eredivisie, so he will be full of confidence heading into this weekend's clash.

His influence in the final third has been growing week-on-week at Utrecht with the Belgian star sitting top of the table by a considerable amount when it comes to both shot and goal-creating actions within the team.
