Netherlands Eredivisie - AFAS Stadion

Home: 13/4 (4.25) – 23.5%

Draw: 14/5 (3.8) – 26.3%

Away: 8/11 (1.73) – 57.9%

While PSV are certainly the favourites, with AZ Alkmaar being at home, it would be sensible to back them to claim a draw after going behind at half-time with odds as high as 13/1 (14.0), although the 7.1% chance of it coming in isn't as appealing. Another market relating to half-time is PSV to score over 0.5 goals in the opening 45 minutes with odds of 16/25 (1.64) and a likelihood of 61% for this to land.

Tip 1: AZ Alkmaar 1-2 PSV

  • Three goals to his name in the league including one away from home against FC Twente three weeks ago

AZ Alkmaar vs PSV team news

AZ Alkmaar

AZ Alkmaar will be relatively pleased to be third in the league at this stage, especially considering the injuries to Mathew Ryan, Sem Westerveld, Mees de Wit and Mayckel Lahdo to contend with, but this could be a task too far for them.

Predicted Lineup: Owuso-Oduro – Wolfe, Martins Indi, Penetra, Sugawara – Clasie, Dantas, Mihailovic – Van Bommel, Pavlidis, Kasius

PSV

After losing out to Feyenoord by seven points last season, PSV have come back with a vengeance this campaign and are yet to even lose a domestic match and they've certainly been helped by keeping large parts of their squad injured ith only Armel Bella-Kotchap out injured.

Predicted Lineup: Benitez – Van Aanholt, Boscagli, Ramalho, Dest – Veerman, Saibari, Til – Tillman, De Jong, Bakayoko

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch – Luuk de Jong

Luuk de Jong simply refuses to go away and appears to keep getting better the older he gets with the striker leading the line for PSV at an impressive 33 years of age.

De Jong currently has 10 goals in only 15 league appearances and he's a huge reason why PSV can kill teams off so quickly and effectively.
