FC Eindhoven boss Rob Penders has a number of players out of action. Jordy Huybers (Knock) and Miano van den Bos (Knock) miss out here.
We feel that over the course of the game, Den Bosch will have to work hard as a team to get anything against this FC Eindhoven lineup who we reckon should get the vital goal that wins it.
Therefore, we predict a narrow 0-1 winning margin for FC Eindhoven when all is said and done.
