It’s time for PSV Eindhoven v BATE Borisov. PSV, the home team, is easily the favourite again BATE Borisov in the Champions League qualification play-offs. It looks pretty certain that they will go through to group phase… and we believe that they’ll do it in style.
Our Tips and Predictions For This Game:
PSV Eindhoven won its first match in Borisov 3-2; it was a very strange match and the Dutch team should win much more comfortably this time. They were leading 2-1 in 88th minute, and then veteran, Hleb, scored the equalizer. However, just one minute later, Lozano scored the goal for PSV Eindhoven’s 3-2 win. We believe this time PSV Eindhoven will play better and won’t miss as many chances as they did in the first match. 888sport offers great odd of 1.96 for a PSV Eindhoven by a two or more goal margin. However, we suggest you take it with a small stake.
PSV Eindhoven started the season with a loss in the Dutch Super Cup against Feyenoord on penalties. However, they then won four games in a row; three in Eredivise and a match against BATE Borisov in the Champions League qualifications. They are a fantastic team and their best player, Lozano, is on form; he scored three goals in those four wins.
BATE Borisov might be in the middle of the season, but the team is playing very badly at the moment. The Belorussian squad didn’t win in any of its last three official matches. In the Champions League, BATE came through wins against HJK 2-1 on aggregate and against Qarabag 2-1 on aggregate before losing to PSV Eindhoven last week. Lady luck was on their side in the first match against the Dutch team, but it’s unlikely that we will see a similar scenario in Eindhoven.
