Match: PSV Eindhoven - Cambuur Leeuwarden
Pick: BTTS NO
I am impressed with the new PSV team this season. They have turned around in less than three months from the most hated team in Holland to the most praised team. They have a great attack. Last year they also had a great attack, they scored more than 100 goals, but they ended not as champions cause their defence was always very dangerous and they conceded almost every match.
PSV have made smart transfers and bought former wonderkid Jeffrey Bruma from Chelsea, whose carreer was not going like he imagined. Also they loaned 18 year old Karim Rekik from Manchester City. Together with 18 year old Jetro Willems, a left back who made his debut at the age of 16 at Sparta Rotterdam (and almost made a transfer to Inter Milan at the time) and Brenet or Arias they form the defence. Especially the central duo impresses and are playing like 28year old with much experience. Also Jetro Willlems who was the youngest player to play on a European Championship in 2012 is getting back to his old level, last season he looked like he a spoiled player, he was also left out of all Dutch national squads, even the U19 team, and looks like he has his discipline and mentality back. Willems is one of the greatest talents of the world on left back, his attacking skills are already world class but he has to work on his defensive skills. He seemed to realized this and is showing improvement in the early games of the season.
I have made this bets already a few times this season when PSV this season and I think the bookies are basing this price on last season defence. Cambuur is one of the weaker teams in the Eredivisie. I expect PSV to win here with a clean sheet (again).
