PSV Eindhoven vs Haugesund 16/08/19

16 August 2019

PSV Eindhoven and Haugesund go head-to-head at the Phillips Stadium for the return leg of their Europa League Qualifiers tie, with the visitors looking to overcome a one-goal deficit from the first leg.

The hosts have endured mixed fortunes at the beginning of the 2019-20 season (W3, D1, L2), with two of those triumphs arriving at home. Interestingly, both of PSV’s home wins this term have seen them score precisely three goals and concede at least one. What’s more, the Farmers’ impressive home form in 2019 has seen them pick up nine wins in ten home games across all competitions since the turn of the year (W9, D1). All of those wins have witnessed Mark Van Bommel’s men score two or more goals and restrict their rivals to a maximum of one goal per match. Still, they have struggled to secure a victory in all three of their European outings last season (D1, L2), with all of those matches producing over 2.5 goals and seeing both teams score.

Meanwhile, the visitors’ run of poor form (D1, L3) indicates it will be a daunting prospect for them to prevail in this tie. Three of those games have featured under 2.5 goals, with two of them ending with the same 1-0 scoreline against their favor. Additionally, the Arabs have pulled off just one triumph in their last five away matches across all competitions (W1, D2, L2), with both of their defeats in that period seeing them concede over 1.5 match goals and score precisely one. Interestingly though, before finding themselves stuck in a crisis, Jostein Grindhaug’s players have racked up a five-game away winning run in all competitions, with four of those triumphs seeing them score 3+ match goals.
