Basel vs PSV Eindhoven Match Preview
PSV have turned a thriller contest their way with a last-gasp backheel goal from Donyell Malen, where Basel took the lead with ten minutes on the clock but that hasn’t proven enough to grab the lead going into the second leg. They now travel to Switzerland hoping to build on the performance and make their way to the next round, despite a tough challenge at St. Jakob-Park looming.
Boeren have seen a disappointing 2-0 Super Cup loss in the hands of Ajax since and will now have to bounce back with obvious fatigue as a danger, where Mark van Bommel has troubles finding a cure for their inconsistency at the back. They will be very motivated, though, and this promises another exciting clash here.
Basel have had similar struggles for consistency and this could prove costly after a loss in the Netherlands, having failed to bounce back quickly and suffering a loss to St Gallen (1-2 at this ground) with another late winner conceded – and from the spot this time around.
Bebbi have still been a tougher side to beat at home and will hope they can show it on the day. The loss to St Gallen was only the second in 2019 but it also came as a second in a row (after the friendly against Stuttgart) and this could feel a lot more worrying for Marcelo Koller.
We thus don’t see his men overturning this one and recovering from the shock just yet, as we stick our necks out for PSV to leave unbeaten in a Draw priced at 13/5 with Coral – hoping to see goals and another thriller between the sides.
Indeed, both have struggled to keep it together at the back and retain stability and with hope for more of the same now – we’re also backing a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/9 with William Hill which many have rated buying money for old rope already.
