When we saw the draw of group D, it was clear that Atletico and Bayern will fight for the first two places, while PSV and Rostov will be looking for 3rd place in the group.
After 5 games, we were right about both sets of predictions, but nobody could have predicted that Rostov will be sitting 3rd after a win over Bayern. Can they avoid defeat in Holland and qualify from the group?
PSV Eindhoven vs Rostov – 06/12/2016
FT Result: PSV 1.75 or 3/4 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Rostov 5.25 or 17/4
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.85 or 17/20 Under 1.95 or 19/20
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.80 or 4/5 No 1.95 or 19/20
Rostov is a team which is very hard to predict, especially because they are very inconsistent. They easily alternate great wins like the 3-2 over Bayern or the 2-0 over Anji with disappointing performances like losses away from home against Ural.
Now, they are in a position where a single point against PSV can lead them to the Europa League, which would be a great feat for a Russian club which never played European football before.
Without a doubt, PSV has experience and value on their side, but the Russians have their weapons: discipline, hard work, and enthusiasms.
PSV Eindhoven aren’t doing very well either at the moment. They have lost contact with the leaders in the Eredivisie and could face elimination from Europe if they fail to win their next game.
Not a lot of teams managed to beat them in Eindhoven this year, but there were also a few draws against weaker opposition – like Heracles, Twente or Groningen. They will surely give everything they’ve got in this clash against Rostov, but will it be enough?
PSV Eindhoven vs Rostov Betting Tips
We think it will, so we recommend betting on a home win here. 1X is a good idea and has decent odds, but we believe that PSV will win, and they will score at least twice.
Over 1,5 goals is another good idea, and we also believe that Rostov will not score. They will look to play defensive football, and probably will be left with no goals scored.
