Excelsior and PSV Eindhoven face off in the Stadion Woudestein in a match of the 13th round of the Eredivisie. The history of direct matches played at this stage favors the visiting team, who in the last 3 matches won 3. Indeed, in the last match at this stage, in a match for Eredivisie on 24-09-2016, PSV Eindhoven only managed to win, 1-3). The goals of the match were scored by L. Bruins (26 ‘) for Excelsior and L. Narsingh (21’), L. de Jong (45 ‘) and D. Pröpper (83’) for PSV Eindhoven. The home / away condition deserves special attention, since although this is a match between 10th and 1st of the overall standings, this is in fact a clash between the 17th placed in home games and the 2nd as a visitor.
After 5 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, the home team is in 10th place, having won 17 points. In the last match, they lost with Utrecht away by (3-1), after in the previous game to have won at home, in a game against Roda, for (1-0). Curiously, this is a team that has achieved better results outside of the home, having won 13 points as a visitor and only 4 in their stadium. In the last 6 home games for the championship, Excelsior records 1 win, 1 draw and 4 losses, having won 4 points out of 18. The team conceded goals to their opponents in 8 of the last 10 games, so they have not shown great defensive solidity, but their attack has scored regularly, as they managed to achieve in 8 of the last 10 games in this competition.

With an uneven campaign so far, she does enough to stay out of the relegation zone, but they are very close to her. He has one of the worst defenses of the championship and his offensive system even struggling does not do enough for the team to leave the bottom of the table. It has a style of game that lets your opponent play and thereby score and suffer goals constantly. It goes through a better phase than at the beginning of the competition, and this caused the team to leave the relegation zone, but after the last defeat again makes the team turn the warning signal. In the last five matches they had three wins, a draw and a loss. Acting at home does not have the same performance and curiously within his domains he was defeated in most of his clashes.
His goal is to run an intermediate campaign and stay out of the relegation zone, and winning this difficult confrontation would be key to that. A tie that by the technical imbalance between the teams may seem advantageous, but to get away from the relegation zone is not. And if you tie this game you can fall on the table. Already a defeat by many goals would be very bad as it would cause the team to finish the round in the relegation zone if the teams that are below in the table win their games. It’s a remote chance, but mathematically possible. His last match was playing away against the Utrecht team and was defeated by the score of 3-1.
The visiting team is currently in 1st place with 33 points, after 11 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, he won at home to Twente by (4-3). In the last match, he won out for Zwolle by (0-1).

In the last 6 away games, PSV Eindhoven have 5 wins and 1 defeat, having won 15 points out of 18.
For this competition, it registers a sequence of 4 victories in the last games as a visitor. His attack has scored regularly, as he has managed to achieve in 9 of the last 10 games in this competition. This is a team that scores many times first: it opened the scoring in 10 of its last 12 games for the Eredivisie, of those 10 it reached the interval in advantage in 4 and managed to always maintain the advantage until the end of 90 ‘.
