PSV will hunt for points record in the Eredivisie in 2024 – That’s Gaming

With a big win over Alkmaar club AZ, PSV can celebrate the holidays with a good feeling. The Eindhoven players go into the winter break with 48 points. An exceptionally good start for Peter Bosz’s club. With this start, the club is aiming for the national championship, but that is not the only title the club can win. With the fantastic start to the season, some historical records are coming pretty close. Flashscore.co.uk grabbed the history book to see which records are in the making.

The Eindhoven natives won 16 games from the start of the league, which means PSV is now one win away from the 1987/1988 series in which the club won 17 games in a row. Back then, PSV played a draw against FC Twente in the 18th round of play. In the current season, 2023/2024, PSV will be visited by Excelsior in the seventeenth round of play on January 13, 2024. A week later follows the away game against FC Utrecht. The Ajax of 1994/1995 is still the only team that remained unbeaten in league play all season: 27 wins and 7 ties.

Points record

Then there is the hunt for the points record in the Eredivisie. With 48 points and still no losses, PSV is well on its way to obliterating its own club record of 88 points. Indeed, in the 2014/2015 season, PSV achieved 29 wins, one draw and suffered four defeats. In a league with 18 clubs and 34 games, 102 is the maximum number in a three-point system. So with 88 points, they came pretty close.

Ajax did a little better in 1997/1998 with a whopping 89 points, setting the Eredivisie record. By the way, if we take the entire history of the Eredivisie, Ajax performed even better in the 1971/1972 and 1972/1973 seasons. Back then, two points were counted for a win. With 30 wins, three draws and one defeat, Ajax took 93 points in 1971/1972.

Classification Ajax

Just a few months ago Ajax found themselves in the last spot of the Eredivisie rankings, but in the meantime the Amsterdammers have moved up to the fifth spot. The gap with No. 4 AZ going into the winter break is eight points, and so the record champion is still at risk of ending the season in the ranks of the worst seasons since the introduction of the Eredivisie in 1956. In the past 67 editions of the Eredivisie, Ajax finished outside the top three seven times, even finishing 13th once.

In the season in which Ajax finished 13th, 1964/1965 season, the team managed to win only nine times. The team played eight draws, but had to take 13 losses. This resulted in a meager 26 points (in the 2-point system of the time). Converted to the current point system, that would result in about 35 points, which would put the club pretty close to the relegation line at the end of last season.
