On Sunday PSV take on Feyenoord at the Philips Stadium for the first top match in the Holland Casino Eredivisie this season.

After eleven matches PSV are on top of the table and Feyenoord are third. PSV have collected four more points than Feyenoord and have a better goal difference. Even if the Rotterdam side seal a win, they will not get above PSV in the table. Feyenoord will play away for the sixth time this season. Feyenoord managed to win just two of those five previous games. They drew twice and lost one game. The statistics as to the PSV-Feyenoord clashes, played in Eindhoven, reveal a better outcome for PSV. However, Feyenoord are known for regularly grabbing points in Eindhoven. PSV won 23 out of 46 matches, seven times the two sides were on level terms and PSV slipped to defeat 16 times. In the past two years Feyenoord did not score a single goal in the Eredivisie encounters in the Philips Stadium and PSV wrapped up two victories in Eindhoven. Last year Feyenoord had a bright start in a game in which the second place in the table was at stake. Yet on the stroke of half time PSV took the lead through Mateja Kezman. The prolific Yugoslav striker doubled the advantage when he pounced on the rebound of a penalty-kick, which he had taken himself. Thus PSV took over the second place in the table from Feyenoord.

Kick-off is at 13:00 hrs and Rene Temmink is the referee in charge. His assistants are Mr J. Meints and Mr J. van Dijk. Fourth official is Mr H. van Dijk.
