PSV Eindhoven vs FK Haugesund for the Europa League qualification match on Thursday at Philips Stadium.
PSV have a goal away from home, and a clean pass for Thursday’s UEFA Europa League qualifiers against Haugesund, with the home advantage, bookmakers are supporting the Dutch club to advance to the next round.
Haugesund will feel they missed an opportunity during the first leg of last week when the final result was uncontrollable, but they remain in this clash, while PSV only leads by one goal.
Statistics and the current form of both clubs suggest that PSV are prepared for a win of at least three goals on Thursday night.
PSV lead the second leg, having won three of their last six games, while their visitors have failed to win any of their previous four games, of which three ended in defeat.
PSV’s home performance in competitive matches has been excellent lately, with the Dutch team winning their last seven at the Philips Stadion. The previous four competitive home wins have PSV scoring three goals on each occasion, beating Den Haag 3-1, Basel 3-2, Heracles 3-0 and Den Haag 3-1.
I am backing a clean sheet for the hosts on Thursday for a couple of reasons, one of which is that Haugesund has failed to score in their last two matches, both at home finishing 1-0.
PSV play in a much more competitive league than their opponents, and while the score remains 1-0, Eredivisie’s side cannot take the game lightly and should count on their strongest eleven to secure the job.
I am confident that PSV will win to zero on Thursday with a 3-0 final result. Haugesund’s bad attack cost them in Norway and visitors should not see as many chances in this game, while PSV will control possession and should score at least three goals, as they have often done at home.
My bet is 1 -2AH.
