On Friday, September 29, 2023, we are watching the Eerste Divisie, namely the match between SC Cambuur and PSV Eindhoven. One of the leaders of the second division will come to visit the ambitious youth team of the Dutch vice-champion. We have thoroughly studied and analyzed the last matches of both teams and are ready to offer two variants for bets at our Cambuur vs PSV prediction.

SC Cambuur vs PSV Eindhoven: What to Expect

Cambuur comes into this game in a very precarious position. The Sjors Ultee team is in a position to qualify for the Eerste Divisie playoffs, but they can easily drop points against a team that has completely different goals and is much lower in the standings than them.

Jong PSV started the new season very strongly but lost their advantage over the competition when they met opponents who were not among the teams at the bottom of the standings. So, in the SC Cambuur vs. PSV Eindhoven match, Wil Bossen’s wards are traveling to Cambuur to finally break their winless streak.

SC Cambuur

In 7 matches played, “SCC” managed to please and disappoint their fans. SC Cambuur started quite confidently, as befits one of the main favorites of the Eerste Divisie. It all started with a draw against Emmen (2:2), an away win over Telstar (2:3) and a home victory over Ajax’s youth team (4:2). Next up for the “Yellow-Blues” was Helmond Sport, an unremarkable team that is mostly at the very bottom of the standings, but not this time – 2:1 in favor of the outsider.

It would seem that after the defeat of Helmond Sport, everything began to improve again because then there were victories against Den Bosch (3:1) and Willem II (1:0), but everything broke down again in the away match against Jong FC Utrecht.

SC Cambuur started the match more actively, thanks to which they managed to organize a goal after a corner kick in the 4th minute of the match – Mees Rijks closed the ball from Yannick Leliendal – 1:0. Olivier van Eldik helped the guests to recover quickly when he played with his hand in his penalty area, allowing Milan Smit to realize an eleven-meter penalty in the 16th minute of the match – 1:1.

The visitors mostly dominated the rest of the game. Fedde De Jong and Milan Smit missed great chances. But Tobias Augustinus Jensen was also watching the game of these two players, who decided not to follow their example, but to realize his moment in the 45th minute of the match. Winger Utrecht made a great shot into the far top corner of the goal, allowing his team to go into the break leading 2:1 in favor of the hosts.

It was very hard not to notice Cambuur’s energy when came on the field after the break, and it was hard not to notice this energy on the football field. The guests flew like wings to the other team’s goal and all that prevented them from scoring was the name Kevin Gadellaa. The goalkeeper worked wonders in the goal frame and did not allow the guests to equalize, but even he could not cope with Youns Gabriele El Hilali when he finished the ball into the empty corner of the goal in the 59th minute – 2:2.

The situation on the pitch was extremely similar to that of the first half – the visitors created chances and the hosts fought back. However, it ended exactly the same way, with Rafik el Arguioui somehow finding a gap between the visitors’ goalkeeper and the goal post and sending the ball into the net from a sharp angle – 3:2 and only two minutes left in the half. SC Cambuur didn’t have enough time to equalize for the third time, so the result was those mentioned above 3-2 in favor of Jong Utrecht.

Despite the defeat, before the match Cambuur x PSV, the hosts were in 4th place and were still among the contenders for promotion.

PSV Eindhoven

The “rood-witten” reserve team is going into the match against SC Cambuur in an even worse mood than the home team. Wil Boessen’s team has had a good start to the Eerste Divisie 23/24, defeating Telstar (1:0), Helmond Sport (2:1), and Den Bosch (1-2) and losing only once to TOP Oss (4:1).

However, PSV Eindhoven faced much more powerful opponents than they had before. First, a defeat against De Graafschap (1-3), and then a painful blow from Groningen (4-0) forced them to fall back to 11th place in the standings. Fortunately for Lampen, the score in the previous round’s home match against VVV-Venlo was not so high.

The teams came out to De Herdgang and it quickly became clear that we would not see any exciting football in the first half. The two teams made only one shot on goal. Boring 0-0 for the first 45 minutes of the match.

But in the second half, the game became much more fun. VVV-Venlo had the advantage and could even open the scoring, but Kjell Peersman was not to be beaten that night. The home team’s goalkeeper took shots from Michalis Kosidis and Tai Abed and finished the match with zero goals conceded.

The same can be said about his counterpart, as Jan de Boer also did not miss that evening. The result: 0:0, and the guests go to the match Cambuur – PSV 2023 with a winless streak, which now has three matches.

Cambuur vs PSV: Head-to-Head

Before the match against SC Cambuur, the guests are in a rather unpleasant situation, as they have not taken points from Cambuur since 2018. ‘SCC’ will definitely win this match, and they do it with maximum confidence on their home field.
