In the 16th week of the league in the Dutch Eredivisie, the tough fight that will bring PSV Eindhoven against AZ Alkmaar will start at 17:45.
Roger Schmidt and his students could not keep this lead despite being 2-0 ahead in the tough Ajax away and left the game with a 2-2 draw. With this draw, they did not allow the break in the championship race. PSV Eindhoven closed all 7 league games played in the home court with victories until before the AZ Alkmaar match and saw only 3 goals in the castle while airing the opponent nets 18 times. Roger Schmidt and his team, Marko Van Ginkel, Armando Obispo, Maximiliano Pomero, Ryan Thomas, Richard Ledezma will not be able to take their place in the match because they are injured.
AZ Alkmaar will go out for the third time in a row due to the fixture. In the first two of these matches, they drew with Utrecht and Zwolle respectively. AZ Alkmaar has scored in his goal in all of his last 7 league matches and 2 European Cup competitions. I guess it would not be wrong to say that the absence of Bruno Martins Indi, who we can call the backbone of the defense, was effective in these bad performances. I think that Martins, whose injury has recovered, will take his place in the match and recover the defense. In Pascal Jansen’s team this week, Dani de Wit will not be able to take their place in the team due to Jeremy Helmer injuries.
PSV and AZ Alkmaar stand out as the strongest teams of the league. Host PSV found morale with 1 point on Ajax last week. Today they win against AZ Alkmaar in the home field.
