Former Liverpool forward Kuyt has hit the ground running upon Dutch return so, at 3/1 anytime with 888Sport, can ensure Eredivisie champions pay the penalty
Since returning for a second spell at Feyenoord, former Liverpool cult hero Dirk Kuyt has scored three in as many matches, so best odds of 3/1 to net against Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven anytime with 888Sport are terrific.
Playing much of his career outside his native Netherlands at Anfield and with Fenerbahce, Clockwork Orange centurion Kuyt shows age is no barrier to performance at 35.
Heralded as a hero by the both the Kop and at De Kuip, PSV must be careful not to concede a penalty in this clash between Eredivisie heavyweights. Kuyt has successfully converted each of his last three spot-kicks, so the Eindhoven defence has to keep its discipline.
At top odds of 15/4 with bet365 for an away win, Feyenoord owe their excellent start to the Dutch domestic season in no small part to clever Kuyt. PSV, odds-on at 4/5 with Betfred for victory, have dropped four points already this term, so there are signs that Phillip Cocu’s team are struggling after cashing in on key players.
Without magnificent wide threat Memphis Depay and midfield maestro Georginio Wijnaldum, who are both Premier League performers now, Eindhoven look less threatening, and the goal burden now falls more heavily on former Newcastle United flop Luuk de Jong.
Although he’s put that ill-fated loan spell on Tyneside behind him, De Jong seems a little short at a best price of 16/13 with 888Sport to net anytime.
Punters will see another familiar face in Feyenoord colours during this live televised encounter on Sky Sports, as English-born Turkey attacker Colin Kazim-Richards is part of their frontline.
Like Kuyt, Kazim Kazim has scored against PSV before and that makes top anytime odds of 7/2 well worth considering. It’s the delightful Dutchman, known for his work ethic and big match performances – just ask Manchester United fans about his hat-trick – that is the best bet here.
