Osijek vs PSV Eindhoven
2017/18 UEFA Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 3rd August 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Gradski Vrt.
Osijek produced one of the best performances in team’s history to stun PSV with a 0-1 victory seven days ago at Philips Stadion.
The manager Zoran Zekic is well aware that his team still has a mountain to climb to take the scalp of the Dutch giants, but the repetition of last Thursday’s display would likely be enough for the greatest upset of the competition.
The city of Osijek is enjoying a true football madness these days. Their club has a super interesting schedule playing Dinamo Zagreb, PSV and Rijeka within only seven days.
Zekic’s men have successfully passed two tests as they clinched the win over PSV in Eindhoven and held Dinamo Zagreb to a 1-1 draw at Gradski Vrt on Sunday evening.
Boeren just can’t seem to find their attacking form at the start of the season as the team notched only a single goal in last three matches.
The streak includes friendlies with Monaco and Grasshopper and the mentioned first official game of the season against Osijek.
Osijek vs PSV: Head to head
Not only that the Croats grabbed the victory in the first leg in Eindhoven, but the Dutch side failed to create a single serious goal scoring chance from the moment they conceded a goal from penalty kick.
Borna Barisic did not make a mistake from the spot to give Osijek a historic win just before the hour-mark.
Osijek vs PSV: Prediction
The tie is, however, still wide open and an early goals from Boeren would completely shift the momentum on PSV’s side.
However, Osijek have been pretty solid at the back at the start of the season and we believe they will have the strength to keep things tight in the defense this Thursday.
