PSV unbeaten at home during seven seasons
PSV enjoy a seven-match unbeaten home run against sc Heerenveen (4 wins, 3 draws). Sc Heerenveen make the trip to Eindhoven for the 25th time to face PSV in a league match. PSV ran out winners 15 times, sc Heerenveen registered 4 wins and the two teams settled for a draw 5 times.
When PSV play host to sc Heerenveen on Sunday, the crowd may be looking forward to an action-packed game, with plenty of goals. PSV scored at least one goal in their previous 16 home encounters with sc Heerenveen, while the visitors found the net at least once in their last 14 league games.
Sc Heerenveen enjoy a good season
Sc Heerenveen slipped to a 2-1 defeat against Willem II in their final game before the winter break. They recorded a 2-0 win against ADO Den Haag last weekend and are currently sitting in fourth position in the Eredivisie, five points behind third-placed PSV. If sc Heerenveen manage to beat PSV in the Philips Stadion on Sunday afternoon, they will have earned 35 points from 19 games. Jurgen Streppel’s team would equal a club record, after they collected 35 points after 19 rounds three times before.
Schaars and Marzo will be on familiar territory
Two former PSV players, who now ply their trade with sc Heerenveen, will be on familiar territory. Stijn Schaars made a move to the Frisian side after three seasons with PSV but will miss Sunday’s game due to an injury. Youngster Stefano Marzo made his PSV debut in December 2011 in the Europa League game against Rapid Bucharest, when PSV registered a 2-1 win. It proved to be his only appearance for PSV.
