PSV Eindhoven vs BATE Borisov
Champions League Play-off (2nd Leg)
Date: Wednesday, 29 August 2018
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Philips Stadion (Eindhoven).
The Philips Stadion in Eindhoven, Netherlands, will be the venue as PSV host BATE Borisov for this second leg of the UEFA Champions League qualification fixture.
PSV will be coming into this home UEFA qualification match with determination to clinch another win over BATE Borisov. This is after thrashing them in the first leg match which was quite a thriller.
Even so, they are vulnerable to attacks by their opponents and end up conceding at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 UEFA matches. Evidently, this is true even from the first leg way at BATE Borisov.
For this match, it may be easy for them unless they are overconfident or change their mode of play. They are expected to match the best out of this game, especially now that they will be playing at their home ground.
BATE Borisov are already defeated in their last encounter with PSV Eindhoven at their home ground in the 1st leg. This may be a discouraging factor as they come into this matchup.
Before then, they had settled for a 1 all draw at home against Qarabag FC. Most notably, BATE Borisov are experiencing team form woes that will be music to the ears of the home team in this fixture.
