In this article, we will give you the best fantasy combinations, probable lineups, team news, key stats and grand league tips for the Dutch League match between FC Emmen and PSV Eindhoven.
Emmen v PSV Eindhoven
De Oude Meerdijk, Emmen
24th January, 11:15 p.m.
The midweek action continues in the Dutch league as FC Emmen are all set to host PSV Eindhoven in their own backyard.
It will be a crucial match for PSV to win all three points and temporarily replace rivals Feyenoord at the top of the Dutch league. The Eredivisie title race is in an exciting phase this season, with only a few points separating the top five teams. Hence, a win against a struggling Emmen becomes incredibly crucial for cementing the title ambitions of PSV Eindhoven, who are coming after a narrow win in their previous match against Vitesse.
For Emmen, however, the story has been quite different, and the real challenge for the Drenthe-based club would be to avoid relegation and stay prominent in the Dutch top flight. A match against Ruud Van Nistelrooy’s men would be a tough nut to crack, especially after a previous defeat against NEC Nijmegen. A point against one of the title contenders tonight in front of their home fans would surely be a motivation factor while moving forward in the league.
