PSV Eindhoven, on the other hand, beat ten-man Go Ahead Eagles 2-0 in their most recent game. Goals from Austrian right-back Philipp Mwene and young Dutch forward Cody Gakpo sealed the deal for Roger Schmidt's PSV Eindhoven. Go Ahead Eagles had centre-back Joris Kramer sent off in the second-half.

Groningen are currently 12th in the league, and have won only one of their last five league games. They are six points ahead of 16th-placed Sparta Rotterdam, and will need to produce some positive results to maintain a gap between them and the relegation spots.

PSV Eindhoven, on the other hand, sit top of the league table, a point ahead of 2nd-placed Ajax. Despite losing stars like Donyell Malen and Denzel Dumfries last summer, PSV Eindhoven have produced some strong performances.

PSV Eindhoven for the win.
