Preview: PSV Eindhoven vs. Vitesse - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Saturday's Eredivisie clash between PSV Eindhoven and Vitesse, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

PSV Eindhoven will be looking to move one step closer to Eredivisie glory when they welcome Vitesse to the Philips Stadion on Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, this weekend's visitors head into the clash aiming to snap a six-game winless run and give themselves a glimmer of hope in the battle for survival.

PSV made it three wins from their last four matches as they cruised to an emphatic 5-1 victory over AZ Alkmaar when the sides went head to head on Saturday.

Two goals from Luuk de Jong and a Johan Bakayoko strike put Peter Bosz's men in the driving seat before Vangelis Pavlidis pulled one back, after which Joey Veerman and Jesper Uneken sealed the deal.

As a result, De Rood-witten are still nine points clear of defending champions Feyenoord at the top of the Eredivisie table heading into the final five rounds of games.

Coming up next is the challenge of an opposing outfit who boast just one win from the most recent 21 editions of this fixture dating back to 2014.

Unbeaten in 12 straight home involvements leading up to Saturday's affair, the hosts are flying in front of their fans and will fancy themselves to get the job done here.

Vitesse were beaten for the third game running following a comprehensive 3-0 thrashing against NEC Nijmegen in Sunday's encounter at GelreDome.

Off the back of a drab opening half, Edward Sturing's men fell behind to Mees Hoedemakers's 65th-minute opener before a late Sontje Hansen double put the result beyond doubt.

With just 17 points picked up from 29 league matches so far, Geel en Zwart remain rooted to the bottom of the standings, five points adrift of safety.

Currently with the second-worst away defensive record in the division this term, Saturday's visitors will need to be wary of another meltdown on the road.

Fode Fofana and Miliano Jonathans are both ruled out for the away side through knee injuries, while Mexx Meerdink continues to nurse a groin problem.

SM words green background

We say: PSV Eindhoven 3-0 Vitesse

Vitesse have been poor at both ends of the pitch all season long, and it is hard to see them coming away with a positive result here. We fancy the hosts to cruise to a comfortable win at the end of the 90 minutes.
