PSV Prediction – Can PSV maintain unbeaten run?

The Dutch hosts have hit the ground running in the new domestic Eredivisie season as PSV have won 4 of their first 5 matches and drawing the other to send them joint top of the Dutch top flight with 13 points apiece with co-leaders, Ajax.

A 1-1 draw with Twente on the opening day of the new Eredivisie season was only the precursor to 4 wins on the trot with PSV recording victories against Den Haag, Heracles, RKC Waalwijk and Vitesse, scoring a total of 13 goals and conceding just 2 goals in reply.

A narrow loss to Basel in the early qualifying rounds of the Champions League by an away goal by the Swiss outfit despite the scores being level at 4-4, saw PSV drop into the Europa League where they’ll be aiming for at least a place in the latter knockout rounds.

PSV have won 3 of their last 4 Europa League ties with wins over Haugesund and home and away wins over Apollon, but results at home in this competition still require further attention as the hosts have won just 4 of their last 9 ties.

Sporting Prediction – Can Sporting delay PSV march?

The visitors have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches overall in all competitions which was a 3-2 defeat at home to Rio Ave but recent wins over Sporting Braga and Portimonense in the Portuguese Primeira Liga will have Sporting hoping they can disrupt PSV’s plans at home on Thursday evening.

On the flip side, Sporting have managed to scrape just 2 wins out of their last 11 matches overall in all competitions and this includes a heavy 5-0 loss to Benfica in the Portuguese Super Cup, while just 1 away win out of their last 9 matches on their travels doesn’t inspire much confidence in them getting a result against an in-form PSV outfit here.

Things get even worse when looking at Sporting’s results away from home in the step up in quality to the Europa League as the visitors have captured just 4 wins on the road out of their last 22 away ties in the competition.

Maybe we shouldn’t read too much into this, but the only previous clash between these two sides ended in a heavy 5-0 win for PSV away from home in a friendly back in July of 2016.


Key-Facts – PSV v Sporting

  • PSV are unbeaten in their last 9 matches overall in all competitions
  • PSV have won 3 of their last 4 Europa league ties overall
  • Sporting have won just 4 out of their last 22 away ties in the Europa League


Betting Tips Verdict

PSV seem to be on a roll right now while Sporting seem a fragile unit and ready for the taking.
