Our prediction for this Champions League match:
PSV and Sevilla face each other at Philips Stadion in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Tuesday’s program. PSV defeated Volendam 3-1 in the national championship at the weekend to keep their 100% record intact and they are now on a quest to record their first win in the Champions League group stages. Guus Til is widely expected to return to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the last league match, while all Gonzaga, Mauro Junior, and Obispo are major doubts.
Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Lens in their opener, but seeing that the in-form PSV have turned their Philips Stadion into a real fortress, we do not believe that Ivan Rakitic and Co. are going to grab something from their second group game. Experienced right-back Jesus Navas is pushing for a start, while both Youssef En-Nesyri and Oliver Torres are out of contention with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Luuk de Jong):
The 26-year-old Dutch striker Luuk de Jong is considered one of Europe’s deadliest strikers with his incredible return of goals in games he spends playing. Luuk de Jong began his football career at De Graafschap in 2008, but moved on to Twente only a year later.
The tally of 39 goals in 76 league appearances earned him a transfer to Borussia Monchengladbach, but his spell in Germany ended in disappointment. Bundesliga club attempted to revive his career by sending him out on loan to Newcastle United but his stint with the English club yielded even more disappointment and concluded in utter disaster with De Jong playing 12 games without scoring a single goal for the Magpies.
A return to Netherlands and PSV Eindhoven turned out to be a proper hit for the 26-year-old striker who has restored his scoring touch with more than 50 goals for the Boeren after less than 90 games.
