Find out with our Arsenal vs PSV match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.We kick off our tips for this match by backing Arsenal to win and we think they’ll do so without conceding.
The Gunners have been in fabulous form of late winning each of their last seven games; four of those matches – including each of the last two – have come with a clean sheet as well. PSV might be in good form too with four wins from their last five matches but a) they haven’t played teams as good as Arsenal and b) that one defeat notably saw them fail to score.
We might have backed Arsenal to win this match to nil but that does not mean we foresee a low scoring game; in fact, we think it could be loaded with goals. Our prediction backs over 2.5 goals. Arsenal have gone over the 2.5 threshold in three of their last five games whilst PSV have broken that 2.5 marker in four of their past five. If you’re looking at game averages, the picture is still heavily linked to going over 2.5 goals. Arsenal have averaged 2.8 per match with PSV’s game average coming in at a whopping 4.6 goals.This is a top of the table clash in Europa League group A.
Arsenal have been perfect so far with three wins from as many games but PSV are only two points further back meaning this game will be a big one to determine who seals top spot in the group. Should Arsenal win, they’ll be guaranteed a spot in the next round whilst a PSV victory will mean both sides can’t confirm their progress until the next game week.
Arsenal have a 100% record in the Europa League so far meaning they’re all but guaranteed to advance to the knockout rounds of the competition. With that in mind, a few changes to the XI for this game are highly likely although we still expect a strong team to take to the field.
