PSV will look to continue their 100 percent win record in the Dutch Eredivisie when they visit Breda on Saturday afternoon, kick-off at 6:30pm (CAT).

Ahead of this 100th H2H meeting, the hosts are on a run of four defeats, while PSV are looking to extend their perfect start to seven games.

For Breda, the goal in this game is surely damage limitation as they endure their worst start to a season since the turn of the century. They are yet to draw a game (W1, L5) and have a goal difference of -10, the joint worst in the league.

PSV enter this match having equalled their own 100% six-game start of 1992/93. The champions’ dominance is characterised by consistency in every half of league football this season, with PSV winning after being ahead at half-time in all league matches so far.

Breda manager Mitchell van der Gaag has had four previous encounters with PSV and lost on each occasion. However, none of those losses suffered by van der Gaag’s side on the day have come by more than a two goal margin - though there is plenty of statistical backing to contradict the idea that this will happen here!

Breda have conceded two or more goals in each of their five losses to date this season, also conceding 3+ goals in four of those games.

Against all opponents, PSV have won their last three Eredivisie games with a margin of three or more goals.

In a further illustration of the chasm between these sides, exactly half of the last eight H2H matches (all venues) have seen PSV win by a margin of 4+ goals!

You can watch the match live on Fox Sports 1 from 6:20pm.
