Arsenal v PSV preview
Wednesday’s Champions League clash in North London sees two teams go head-to-head with near perfect records this season.
Arsenal have won five of their six matches they’ve played in all competitions, drawing the other, leaving the London side sitting just two points behind the league leaders and defending champions Manchester City.
Mikel Arteta’s side won the Community Shield at the start of last month, defeating last season’s treble winners on penalties, before kicking off the league season with back to back victories over Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace.
An unexpected 2-2 draw at home against Fulham followed but consecutive wins over Manchester United and Everton over the last two weekends means the Gunners sit fourth place in the table currently and in good form ahead of their Champions League clash.
PSV have also won all but one of their matches this season, winning eight of their nine matches they’ve played in all competitions, with the only blemish on their record being a 2-2 draw away at Rangers in Champions League qualifying, only to win the return leg 5-1 at home.
Like Arsenal, the side from Eindhoven also won their Community Shield equivalent, winning 1-0 against last season’s league champions Feyenoord to kick their season off with silverware.
Peter Bosz’s side navigated their way through two qualifying rounds to secure their place in the group stage of the Champions League this season for the first time since 2019, and have won all four of their league matches so far, leading the division on goal difference.
PSV have won their last three matches ahead of Wednesday’s encounter by a combined scoreline of 13-1, and will back themselves to get something out of their game against last season’s Premier League runners up.
The two sides were also drawn together in the group stage of the Europa League last season, with each side winning their respective home fixture, leaving Arsenal with only one win against the side in their last five matches dating back to 2004.
Arsenal v PSV betting tips
Sky Bet have boosted some of their selected odds ahead of the match, including the likes of Bukayo Saka, Arsenal’s leading goal scorer and assister, who will be making his debut in the competition against PSV, to either score or assist, now at 10/11.
Another offer that has been boosted, is Martin Odegaard, another of Arsenal’s joint-top goal scorers, to have 2+ shots on target in the match, which is now available at 9/4.
