FC Twente will welcome PSV Eindhoven to the De Grolsch Veste on Sunday for a matchday nine fixture in the Dutch Eredivisie.

This will represent a return to action for both sides after a two-week break due to the international window and they will be looking to maintain their bright start to the campaign.

The hosts currently sit in fifth spot on the standings and could leapfrog their opponents with a win here, while PSV are third with 19 points from eight games.

There is a lot riding on the outcome of this match, as just four points separate the top five teams on the table and neither side will want to lose momentum ahead of a busy period in the calendar.

PSV, on the other hand, are seeking to reclaim the title from rivals Ajax and manager Roger Schmidt will be buoyed by the return to fitness of several key players after a spate of positive COVID-19 tests were recorded in the last few weeks.

The attacking nature of both sides guarantees that there will be goals at both ends but there is very little to choose from between them.

Prediction: FC Twente 2-2 PSV Eindhoven
