Tobias Gourlay is expecting an electrifying encounter as PSV travel to Emmen in the Eredivisie this evening
Emmen v PSV
Tuesday 19:00 (Live on Premier Sports 1)
In Portugal last night, Porto produced just a single goal as they sneaked past Farense 1-0 and left us short of our goals line. We go again in the Netherlands today.
Third-placed PSV (W12-D4-L2) are headed to rock-bottom Emmen (W0-D6-L12) today. Since PSV won this fixture 6-0 a couple of seasons ago, both teams have scored in three straight league meetings and we fancy there could be a few goals this evening.
PSV have scored 22 goals across nine road trips so far this term, but only ended up winning 4/9. The problem, of course, is at the back: Roger Schmidt’s men have conceded 13 times and notched just a single clean sheet in nine attempts. Their most recent four away games have finished 2-2, 4-1, 2-2 and 5-3. We like the odds-against price on them hitting Over 3.5 Goals again in this one.
Emmen have also got major problems in the rearguard. Dick Lukkien’s men are W0-D3-L6 at De Oude Meerdijk this term, having failing to keep a single clean sheet. In total they’ve shipped 28 goals at a rate of more than three a game. At the other end of the pitch, they’ve scored themselves in 8/9 and 7/9 have delivered Over 3.5 Goals. We reckon they can contribute to another high scorer this evening.
