After the showdown with FC Volendam, PSV awaits the double meeting with Ajax. PSV plays once in the Philips Stadium and once in De Kuip against the team from Amsterdam.
The match in the Philips Stadium does not have to be crucial right away, but the winner of the thirtieth league match does take a big step in the right direction for second place. Aad de Mos thinks that PSV will beat Heitinga’s team. Moss is not alone. Also from an Amsterdam perspective, at least seen from the Telegraaf, it is believed that PSV will come out on top.
Valentijn Driessen does not immediately dare to designate a winner, but like Aad de Mos, he thinks that PSV will be the favorite in the diptych against the Amsterdam team. Driessen saw that PSV had a lot of trouble with FC Volendam.
“Volendam also came very close to the equalizer a number of times,” says Driessen in a video item from De Telegraaf. “And they really deserved it. In the end, PSV’s individual qualities are decisive, although PSV also had a number of great opportunities. Joey Veerman was involved in two goals in the build-up, but he could have scored two himself.”
Driessen continues and points to the advantages that PSV would have over Ajax. “I think it will be a very interesting meeting, that top match between PSV and Ajax. I think the winner will walk away with the preliminary round of the Champions League. Neither of them excel, but PSV is complete and plays in-house. As a result, you could call PSV the favourite, but they are also very changeable. I think I’m going for a very cowardly draw,” said Driessen.
