PSV have won their last seven encounters with Zwolle and have kept clean sheets in five of those matches. The hosts also kept a clean sheet in their last home game against Fortuna Sittard while Zwolle have failed to score in two of their last three matches, so you can begin to see why we have backed PSV to win-to-nil on Saturday.
PSV have won six times at home this season and Zwolle have lost seven times on the road, with the host averaging 2.38 points per home game and the visitors averaging 0.67 points per away game. PSV score an average of 2.88 goals per home game and Zwolle concede an average of 2.00 goals per away game, which ties in well with our prediction for a 2-0 home win this weekend.
PSV have netted 23 goals at home and have conceded 9 goals while Zwolle have only scored 7 goals away from home and have conceded 18 goals, adding further weight to our prediction for a home win on Saturday. 100% of PSV’s home games and Zwolle’s away games have produced over 1.5 goals, so we can’t see there being any fewer than two goals scored on Saturday.
PSV have kept clean sheets in 25% of their home games and Zwolle are yet to keep a clean sheet on the road. The hosts have won-to-nil in 25% of their home games and the visitors have lost-to-nil in 56% of their away games, providing even more reasons to back a 2-0 win for PSV this weekend.
A majority of PSV’s wins this season (8) have been obtained with a margin of 2 goals or more while a majority of Zwolle’s defeats (8) had a margin of 2 goals or more, all of which ties in beautifully with our prediction of a 2-0 home win this Saturday.
We’re confident that PSV will win-to-nil this weekend and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-0. The hosts certainly haven’t been at their best so far this season and must improve in the second half of the campaign but their home record is strong while Zwolle’s is poor.
PSV really enjoy playing against this particular opponent and the only reason we have backed a 2-0 win as opposed to a scoreline much more convincing is due to the form of the hosts heading into Saturday’s clash.
