Kerkrade Roda and PSV Eindhoven meet Sunday at 13:30, in the 11th round of Eredivisie.
Roda is in 10th place with 13 points, just six lengths leader. After a week, the team coached by Ruud Brood has defeated Waalwijk 2-1, away. In the previous four stages, Roda has not been defeated, winning three draws. PSV will be difficult but positive to continue this series. Kees Lujickx served his suspension and will be on the field Sunday. Instead, Guy Ramos, De Beule Monteyne and Kali will be unavailable.
PSV ranks second, being a point behind the leader. If you beat Roda a team coached by Philipp Cocu will become the leader for at least two hours. Last round, PSV was defeated, all away, by Groningen, score 0-1, despite numerous occasions taken the band in Eindhoven. Although the result was unfavorable, hosts coach was pleased with the performance of his players. Moreover ,, farmers “have not won away 5 stages. Even in Europe, the Dutch do not do well, just getting a midweek draw against Croatia in match against Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League. Philipp Cocu will have to do in this game without Zoet Rekik, Wijnaldum and Park Ji-sung, all injured. Narsingh is almost completely rebuilt after his serious injury at the end of last year, but it could spare Cocu. In these days it was discussed Toivonen’s contract extension, which expires in the summer. The two sides seem to not understand money for being Finnish, most likely spent last season at PSV, Newcastle, Norwich and Fiorentina’s stand on the prowl to acquire Toivonen.
Last season, the two teams ended in a draw, 2-2, Parkstad Limburg Stadion on in Kerkrade. Roda never won the last eight encounters at home and we doubt it will do now.
