Utrecht vs PSV Eindhoven Prediction

Utrecht are currently 7th in the Eredivisie, and have won two of their last five league games. It looks increasingly likely that they will finish the season in the top half of the table.

PSV Eindhoven, on the other hand, are 2nd in the league, and have won their last four league games. They are two points behind league leaders Ajax, and given Ajax's slight dip in form in recent weeks, Roger Schmidt's men will be hoping to do the unlikely.

PSV Eindhoven for the win.
