PSV – Basel : Preview & Prediction
PSV will get to the heart of the matter with their first official match of the season against FC Basel. The preparation matches were mixed with 1 success against Aris Salonica (3-0), 1 draw against Sion (0-0) and 2 losses against Nice (2-3) and Wolfsburg (0-2). However, PSV remain undefeated at home for 10 games in official competitions and we must go back to November 28, 2018 to see the last team, FC Barcelona, win the Philips Stadion (1-2). FC Basel is not a frequent flyer, but it started this season 2019-2020 with a big success in Sion (4-1) this Friday during the first day of the Swiss championship. This success follows a friendly defeat against Stuttgart (2-3) six days earlier. Eliminated by PAOK Thessaloniki last season (1-2 and 0-3), the Swiss club could again stay at the dock!
Basel has only four wins in its last 16 trips in the LDC.
In the group stage last season, PSV held the home game with Inter Milan (1-2), Tottenham (2-2) and FC Barcelona (1-2).
In official competitions, the PSV remains on 9 wins and 1 draw at the Philips Stadion, unbeaten in progress.
FC Basel have lost 1 in their last 3 trips in official competitions.
The Dutch club must take a score advantage before moving to Switzerland.
PSV Eindhoven are likely to take the advantage in this first round and to place themselves in favorable bidding before returning to Switzerland.
