The sixth round of the 2018/19 Eredivisie season will be played from September 21 to 23 and is headlined by the clash between title contenders PSV Eindhoven and Ajax Amsterdam on Sunday.

The two Dutch heavyweights will meet at the Philips Stadion on Sunday, September 23, with kick-off at 16h45 CAT. The match will be broadcast live on Fox Sports 1.

The rivalry between PSV and Ajax is one of the most fiercely contested in the Eredivisie – even more so because their meetings are potential title deciders.

The teams have met 133 times across all competitions – dating back to their very first meeting in 1928 – and each has claimed 54 victories.

Last season Ajax beat PSV 3-0 in Amsterdam, but the return game in Eindhoven was won 3-0 by the hosts and the visitors ended the game with just nine men after both Nicolas Tagliafico and Siem de Jong were sent off.

The PSV-Ajax game is not the only fixture set to be shown live on Fox Sports 1, with the Feyenoord v Utrecht clash in Rotterdam earlier on Sunday also on the menu for Dutch football fans.

The round opens on Friday night with Heracles hosting De Graafschap, while Saturday’s feature games sees Mounir El Allouchi’s NAC Breda away to VVV and Thulani Serero’s Vitesse at home to Wilfried Kanon’s ADO Den Haag.
