There is nothing wrong with the current form of PSV who are sitting at the top of the Eredivisie in the Netherlands.

They are unbeaten on the domestic front in their new campaign there. PSV turn their attention to Europa League action on Thursday.

They will be playing host to Granada in what is one of the best-looking games of match day one.

The Spanish visitors will turn up for their European main-draw debut, in good spirits for what looks set to be a great contest.

PSV Eindhoven Preview – PSV narrow favourites for home success

This is going to be a good test for both of these clubs. The early season in the Eredivisie has gone very well for PSV.

They are W4 D1 there and have averaged over two goals per game so far.

The Dutch side did have to come through a couple of qualification matches to reach the group stage.

They posted comfortable away wins first at NS Mura and then in the play off round against Rosenborg.

PSV took a 2-0 win there in that play off match, which means that they have scored seven goals in two Europa League games this season.

Eindhoven were in the group stage of last season’s Europa League after coming through the qualifiers.

They took a W2 D2 L2 record in last season’s group stage, the two losses happening on the road.

It was a W2 D1 record that Eindhoven took on home turf last season.

They are the 5/4 narrow favourites in Europa League betting for Thursday* (odds taken 04:38 GMT, Tuesday, 20th October)

Our betting prediction:
PSV by 1 Goal Margin
3/1

Bet at William Hill

(odds taken 04:38 GMT, Tuesday, 20th October)

 

This will be the first competitive meeting between the two teams, so we have nothing to look back at.

Across all competitions last season, Eindhoven lost just one fixture at home. That happened in a league upset in October.

This looks like being a high-quality game and we are expecting goals in it. There usually are when PSV are involved in a game.

Over 2.5 goals for Europa League betting is at 11/10* (odds taken 04:38 GMT, Tuesday, 20th October).

This will only be PSV’s second-ever home game against a Spanish side in the Europa League.

The previous one ended in a 1-1 draw in 2012 against Valencia.

 

Granada Preview – Can Spaniards pick up good three away points?

Granda are currently sitting in sixth place in La Liga after a W3 D1 L1 record. So they have made a nice positive start.

The one loss for them in that run happened against Atletico Madrid which is no disgrace of course.

Granada have scored seven goals in their five league games but have conceded eight.

So they haven’t been watertight by any stretch of the imagination.

Just like PSV Granada had to get through some Europa League qualifiers to reach the group stage.

It was three rounds of qualifying action for them and they cruised through each one.

The toughest was their play off round fixture against Malmo, but Granada took a 3-1 away win there book their spot in the draw.

Each of their three games in this season’s competition, Granada have won by a two-goal margin at least.

We aren’t suggesting that that’s what’s going to happen on Thursday.

Granada are indeed, the 21/10 underdogs in the fixture* (odds taken 04:38 GMT, Tuesday, 20th October).

Granada have tallied seven goals in their two away games in the Europa League so far in this campaign, but are going to get a much tougher time here.

This is a big occasion for Granada, who finished seven in the Spanish top flight last season.

It is their first season in Europe and therefore their first game in the main draw of a UEFA competition.

We do see a reasonable chance of both teams getting on the scoresheet. Granada look solid enough to exploit the PSV back line.

A Both Teams TO Score option is at 10/11 for Europa League betting on this game.

 

PSV Eindhoven vs Granada Betting Advice

Well, we would lean towards PSV Eindhoven getting a result out of this. However, their record against SPanish sides is terrible.

They have won only four of 30 previous fixtures against Spanish opposition.

Three of those four wins have been at home, but the Dutch side are winless in their last five on home turf against Spanish visitors.

 

Key Facts – PSV Eindhoven vs Granada Betting Tip

  • PSV Eindhoven have won only 4 of 30 previous games against Spanish opposition
  • PSV Eindhoven have lost four of their last 10 Europa League group stage home games
  • Granada are in their first ever UEFA competition

 

But still. We are siding with experience here basically. PSV are W10 D7 L4 in previous home matches in the Europa League group stage.

They have won just three of their last ten such fixtures, however, but it’s home advantage and they are in form.

We are going to suggest that they can take this by a 1 goal margin at 3/1 odds for longer value* (odds taken 04:38 GMT, Tuesday, 20th October).
