Football Predictions shows the Eredivisie clash on Sunday between Fortuna Sittard and PSV Eindhoven, including hunches, preview and possible lineups.
PSV Eindhoven go to the Sunday meeting with Fortuna Sittard seeks to be within walking distance of the leader of the Eredivisie, Ajax.
While the visitors have a streak of four games without losing, Sittard is in ninth position, after losing two games in the same period.
While Roger Schmidt had an indifferent start to life at PSV, the German could not imagine the level of disillusionment felt during last week’s games.
Three days after being denied a Europa League spot in the last 16 for conceding a goal in the 88th minute, Schmidt saw his team allow Ajax to score a penalty on the last breath in their decisive league game.
The 1-1 draw became even more frustrating with VAR preventing PSV from taking a 2-0 lead, and now they have to focus on trying to win each of the remaining 10 games.
Realistically, this is what it will take to overcome Ajax, who have a six-point lead, having played less than one game, but PSV also need to keep an eye on the squad in search.
At a time when AZ Alkmaar is now just two points from second place, PSV has already been six games in all competitions without conceding a goal without conceding a goal.
Sittard have won four wins in their last six games for the Dutch top flight, one of only four clubs to collect such a return in the same period.
However, the 1-0 defeat at Groningen last weekend kept the club struggling to stay in the top ten, the minimum expectation given their recent form recovery.
After 16th place last season, there will be those associated with Fortunezen who are simply happy to avoid a battle to avoid relegation.
