PSV Eindhoven vs Arsenal on Tuesday in the Champions League. Arsenal enters play with a record of 4-1 and a +12 goal differential, completely dominating this group.

For PSV Eindhoven, the level of play hasn’t been as dominant as they hoped. 

PSV qualified for the next round of the Champions League with an impressive win in the last game against Sevilla. They secured a 2-3 victory after a goal by Pepi in injury time after being down 2-0 until the 68th minute of the match. 

This is the first time they qualified for the next round of the CL since the 2015/2016 season.

Riding high on their unbeaten streak in the Eredivisie (15 wins in 15 games), PSV’s form has been formidable, adding an interesting dynamic to this match.

Despite both teams having secured their spots in the knockout stages, PSV might see this as an opportunity to gain momentum and make a statement, especially after their previous 4-0 loss to Arsenal.

On the other side, Arsenal, shaken by their recent Premier League 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa, will be looking to bounce back and regain their confidence.

Though not crucial for the group standings, this match offers the Gunners a chance to refine their tactics and restore team morale ahead of the busy festive period.

PSV Eindhoven vs Arsenal Prediction, Odds

While this game doesn’t mean anything to either side, PSV might have more to prove. 

This doesn’t seem to be an issue for Arsenal, as their attack has been dominant in this group, having scored 15 goals so far, a total only equalled by Atlético Madrid and Manchester City.

With Brighton & Hove Albion and Liverpool coming up within the next two weeks, Arsenal could decide to sit key players. However, I think they’ll win this game even if they rotate a few regular starters. 

The likely inclusion of players like Eddie Nketiah and Leandro Trossard, who are eager to prove their mettle, could still pose a significant threat to PSV’s defence.

Despite Peter Bosz claiming in an interview this week that this PSV squad is the best squad he’s ever coached in his career, the injury to Noa Lang and the suspension of Hirving Lozano are important ones for the club. 

These losses might hinder PSV’s attacking options, especially against an Arsenal side known for its depth and strong attacking lineup. 

Furthermore, PSV’s recent form, particularly their resilience shown in the Champions League, including their stunning comeback against Sevilla, indicates their capability to confront challenges.

However, with a -2 goal differential and a 2-1-2 record in the group, they face an uphill battle against Arsenal’s superior goal-scoring prowess. 

This contrast in form and firepower suggests that even a rotated Arsenal side could maintain the upper hand in this encounter.

PSV Eindhoven vs Arsenal Betting Tip

Because we could see a backup goalie for both Arsenal and PSV Eindhoven, expect goals to be scored.

If Gabriel Jesus, with four goals in the league, and Bukayo Saka at three goals in the league, play, 2.5 goals should be a breeze for Arsenal alone. 

Not only has Arsenal scored the most goals, but PSV has given up nine, which is higher than the league average throughout the first five games.

The last time Arsenal played in the Champions League, they scored six goals.

Four of the five games they’ve played have hit the over. 

Additionally, with PSV’s remarkable goal-scoring record in the Eredivisie (+46), their offence could significantly contribute to the tally, especially as they seek to make a statement following their previous defeat to Arsenal. 

Both teams’ potential for squad rotation could also lead to a less coordinated defence on each side, increasing the likelihood of goals.

Given PSV’s determination to bounce back and Arsenal’s recent defensive lapses, the over is indeed the best play of the match if Eindhoven can capitalize on their attacking opportunities.
