Eredivisie leaders PSV Eindhoven visit the Mandemakers Stadion on Sunday to square up against RKC Waalwijk as the season reaches its midway point.

Meanwhile, the home side are looking to pull further away from relegation danger by picking up a second consecutive victory on home turf.

Match preview

PSV eased into the next round of the KNVB-Beker courtesy of a 2-0 triumph over Fortuna Sittard at the Philips Stadion on Wednesday.

Goals in either half from Ritsu Doan got the job done for Roger Schmidt's men on home turf.

The Rood-witten claimed top spot in the league in the game preceding that courtesy of a comeback 2-1 victory against NEC as both Ajax and Feyenoord failed to win.

Their next task sees them go up against an opposing side who are yet to come out on top in any of the last five meetings, losing each of the most recent three clashes.

With the two other title contenders going head to head in Rotterdam, Sunday's visitors have a chance to stretch their lead at the top of the standings and will be keen to do exactly that.

Waalwijk recorded their first away victory of the campaign courtesy of a 5-0 demolition of Harkemase Boys in the latest round of the KNVB-Beker.

Finn Stokkers was the star of the show, scoring two goals and setting up another as Joseph Oosting's men simply had too much for their lower-tier opponents.

However, RKC have only won one of their last six league outings and are 14th in the table as things stand, three points clear of danger.

Faced with the challenge of containing the division's second-best attack away from home, Sunday's hosts have it all to do if they are to come away with a positive result.

PSV possess better players in every department and will fancy themselves to come out on top in this one, and while we expect the home side to be no pushovers, we are tipping the away side to get the job done.
