Europa League

Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET

PSV Eindhoven vs Rosenborg Prediction

PSV were defeated on the road the last European match-day, and in a grave manner as well. Their opponents were Sporting, and the Portuguese outfit had the home advantage. The hosts fired in four unanswered goals to secure the three points.

Meanwhile, Rosenborg had the home advantage, and still had to succumb to a 1-2 loss against LASK in the fifth game week of the Europa.

This Thursday, either team will not be that excited about the prospect of taking part in a continental fixture, considering that both have already been eliminated from the competition. However, a huge win could certainly help the Eindhoven outfit, considering their current off-form, and Ajax’s dominance in the Eredivisie.

In that regards, take into account the fact that PSV have the home advantage. They were also unbeaten in the first three match-days in the group stage whereas Rosenborg have lost all of their games so far in the contest.

In addition, the Norwegian outfit have so far scored just two goals, while every other squad in the cluster have scored four times that amount or more.

On top of that, Rosenborg are on the road, and they were winless in nine of their last ten games away from home. They have also conceded two or more goals in four of their previous five away fixtures, and in eight of their latest eleven overall match-ups.

Furthermore, PSV hold a 100% winning record against this opponent, and won the reverse fixture with a scoreline of 1-4, and that too without the aid of home advantage. They were also unbeaten in 20 of their last 22 home fixtures, and won 15 of their previous 21 matches at this venue.

Considering all these observations, despite this being a pointless exercise, PSV should record a crushing win.
