Tottenham vs PSV Eindhoven

Tuesday November 6th, 20:00

The Champions League returns this coming week with an important Group B clash between Tottenham Hotspur and PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday evening in a game the hosts are favourites to win.

Predictions

Both these sides are on the brink of Champions League elimination despite having played only half of their group games to date.

They both stand on one point after three matches, with that coming for each in their 2-2 draw in Eindhoven in the last round of games.

However, Inter’s defeat in Barcelona means that the Nerazzurri are only five points ahead of each side and could potentially be caught.

Spurs will be favourites to win this game and elimination at this stage would be a massive disappointment following their exploits in last season’s competition.

PSV have not reached the knockout stages of the Champions League, when they were eliminated by Atletico Madrid on penalties after a 0-0 aggregate draw.

Despite the visitors fine form domestically, Spurs should be favourites to secure a vital three points in this fixture due to holding home advantage and having a necessity to win this game.

A 3-1 home victory appears to be the most likely outcome from this.

Betting Tips

A total of 11 goals have flown in across PSV’s three Champions League games to date for PSV, while for Spurs that number stands at 13. These are two teams who will be looking to win this game and will likely set out offensively, leading to an entertaining game full of games.

Spurs have scored in each of their three Champions League group games but have accumulated just one point, while PSV have netted a remarkable 53 goals already this season – with their only blank in a 4-0 defeat at Barcelona.

Statistics

Head to Head

Last week’s meeting in Eindhoven was the third historic meeting between the two. PSV eliminated Spurs from the Europa League in 2008, with Jefferson Farfan’s strike ensuring the Dutch side won at White Hart Lane and despite Spurs winning in the Netherlands, they crashed out on penalties.

Stats

  • PSV have won all ten of their Eredivise matches to date this campaign, sitting five points clear of nearest rivals Ajax.
  • Luuk de Jong and Hirving Lozano have both already netted eight league goals for PSV this season.
  • PSV have won only two of their last 13 Champions League matches – both coming against BATE Borisov.
  • Tottenham have not won any of their last five Champions League games, and have conceded two goals or more in each of those fixtures.
