PSV Eindhoven vs Sporting Lisbon Match Preview
Sporting Lisbon have struggled for consistency and their tense 1-1 draw at Boavista points to such a claim as well, as they failed to bounce to the winning ways after seeing a home loss to Rio Ave (2-3) ahead of the International break. They now travel to Eindhoven looking to put it behind them and cause an upset at Philips Stadion, desperate for a pick-me-up.
Leoes have seen just one away win this term, where they beat Portimonense (1-3), saw a 1-1 draw at Maritimo, and suffered a 5-0 thrashing in the hands of Benfica in their Super Cup clash. They’ve been conceding goals on the regular and will obviously need more to cause an upset here, as the rivals seem to be in a much better place.
Indeed, PSV come into the match on the back of a five-match winning streak, including comfortable Eredivisie wins over Heracles (0-2), RKC Waalwijk (1-3), and Vitesse (5-0) as well as smooth sailing against Apollon in Europa League Play-offs (7-0 on aggregate). They’ve been impressive up front and Mark van Bommel will want more of the same.
Donyell Malen has netted all five goals against Vitesse over the weekend and boosted his tally to eight in the last five outings across competitions, which promises the youngster in a great mood and leading the line once again. Boeren will surely be very motivated to impress in the final third and we thus hope to see goals once again.
We do feel PSV have what it takes to secure the important points here and we’ll now back them to outgun the rivals, bagging a Home win priced at 10/11 with Coral and rated a great value by many in the know already.
We should thus be in for goals and with hope we’re in for a thriller clash at Philips Stadion, we’re also going for a high-scoring contest and Over 2.5 Goals FT at 8/11 with 22bet which looks like a generous banker bet at this point.
