Den Haag face a stiff challenge in the Dutch Eredivisie on Saturday night when they host PSV at the Cars Jeans Stadion.

The international break has come to an end, and Den Haag play the current champions PSV for the 89th time, making it the most played fixture for Den Haag against any other side in the Netherlands.

Alfons Groenendijk’s men (Den Haag) are looking to record three consecutive victories for the first time since March 2017. However, no Den Haag side has beaten PSV at home since 1990/91, returning a record of: D4, L11, against them since.

Now in his eighth game as PSV manager, Mark van Bommel has won six consecutive matches in all competitions, and is yet to draw a game. This could well be that game, as PSV have taken just a point from each of their last three visits here.

Van Bommel’s side have averaged 3.3 goals across their last six games, which equates to just over two per game. Moreover, PSV have scored at least two goals in 26 of their last 29 encounters vs Den Haag, in all competitions.

Additionally, each of Den Haag’s four league games this season have seen both teams score, and over 2.5 goals scored in total.

15 of PSV’s last 16 matches, and each of Den Haag’s last eight have produced over 2.5 goals (Eredivisie).

PSV have scored at least two goals in ten of their last 11 away Eredivisie games.

Den Haag have conceded at least two in eight of their last nine Eredivisie games.

The match will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1 at 22h30 (CAT).
