Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Neo GSP Stadium will host Thursday’s football match between Omonia and PSV. Omonia did well to hold PAOK to a 1-1 draw in their Europa League opener, but they face yet another difficult task against PSV. The Cypriotes are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach against PSV, but preventing the Eredivisie side from scoring is easier said than done. The Red and Whites, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Granada.
PSV have big ambitions for the 2020/21 Europa League campaign, but given the number of absentees in the away team, we are tempted to put our money on draw. German ace Mario Gotze is injured, while the likes of Rosario, Gakpo, and Delanghe have all been tested positive for coronavirus. Mexico international Erick Gutierez remains on the sidelines with a long-term injury. Anyhow, a share of spoils is on the cards at Neo GSP Stadium.
