PSV – Arsenal Preview
We are going to the Philips Stadion in Eindhoven where PSV will host Arsenal in a match from Group B of the Champions League. Let’s see what we can tell you about it in our sure soccer predictions.
Arsenal already won this group as the Gunners are leaders with 12 points which puts them 4 points ahead PSV. Meanwhile the Dutch side needs at least a point here to secure the second place and officially reach the 1/8-finals. They are 3 points ahead of Lens at the moment.
PSV are having an impressive season so far. In the Dutch Eredivisie they are leaders with 45 points which puts them 10 points ahead of Feyenoord. In 15 matches played, they enjoyed 15 wins. What Peter Bosz’ team is doing at the moment is just impressive.
In their last match PSV faced Heerenveen at home and secured the three points once again – 2-0. Til and Pepi scored for the hosts.
Arsenal are playing just for their own prestige in this match – they already won the group. Now the manager Mikel Arteta could try some rotations in the line-up and pick players who rarely play. And these players would want to use the opportunity.
Because of rotations, we could see players such as Trossard, Nketiah, Nelson, Soares, Kiwior, Ramsdale and Jorginho in the starting eleven. Some of the team’s leaders like Rice, Saka, Odegaard and Gabriel Magalhaes should get a rest.
Some might say that Arsenal’s motivation in this game won’t be very high, but these players who will get the chance would like to prove themselves. So don’t underestimate them.
That’s the sure soccer predictions for the Champions League clash between PSV and Arsenal. The hosts have more reasons to aim for the win here, but Arsenal are dangerous in each version Mikel Arteta puts on the pitch.
