Our prediction for this Europa League match:
PSV play host to Zurich at their Philips Stadion in the Europa League round 4. PSV rolled over Zurich 5-1 at Letzigrund Stadion a week ago, and yet another triumph over the Swiss outfit will see Ruud van Nistelrooy’s troops climb to top two in Group A. Both El-Ghazi and Gutierrez are pushing for a start, with Vertessen and Saibari likely to drop to the bench after the duo failed to impress in a 1-0 win over Heerenveen at the weekend.
All Boscagli, Fofana, Madueke, Mauro Junior, de Jong, and van Ginkel have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the home team. Zurich, on the other hand, failed to impress in a goalless draw with Winterthur, and given their nine-game winless run in all competitions, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. All Reichmuth, Omeragic, and Sauter are out of contention with injuries for the away team.
Highlighted Player (Anwar el Ghazi):
Anwar El Ghazi is a product of famous Ajax football academy and it has to be noted that he scored 20 goals in 70 matches for the first team from 2014 to 2017. El Ghazi played for the likes of BVV Barendrecht, Feyenoord, Spartaan ’20 and Sparta Rotterdam during his youth career as well and, speaking of the first-team football, he moved to Ligue 1 side Lille in January 2017 for a fee of €8 million.
The pacey winger scored one goal in 12 appearances for les Dogues in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign, but, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of the former Ajax starlet. Seeing that he has a dual citizenship, Anwar El Ghazi is eligible to represent both Netherlands and Morocco at senior level, but he made his debut for the Orange in a 2-1 win over Kazakhstan, with the Lille winger starting the match in a 4-3-3 formation alongside Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Memphis Depay.
Anwar El Ghazi is capable of playing as a centre-forward as well and his preferred foot is right.
