Two teams fighting for Champions League survival go toe-to-toe when PSV take on Tottenham on Wednesday night.
Both teams are pointless after their opening two group games and defeat for either side could effectively end their Champions League dreams.
It is Mauricio Pochettino’s men who are chalked up as favourites to kickstart their campaign with victory here – William Hill offer even money (2.0) that Spurs snatch all three points.
PSV are a 5/2 (3.50) chance to inflict yet more Champions League misery upon the north Londoners, while the same firm offer 14/5 (3.80) that the match ends in a draw – an outcome that, in all likelihood, would suit neither side.
Neither Dele Alli nor Danny Rose will not be fit to face PSV, while Jan Vertonghen faces another couple of months on the sidelines.
Ryan Thomas is a long-term concern for PSV but Van Bommel has an otherwise fully fit squad from which to choose.
Mark van Bommel’s men sit proudly atop of the Eredivisie after winning all nine matches and they will be bursting with belief ahead of this tie, having enjoyed a thumping 6-0 win on Saturday afternoon.
PSV have been in fantastic form in front of goal on their own patch, scoring a hugely impressive 27 goals in seven games at Philips Stadion so far.
The glaring black mark against PSV’s home form is the 2-1 defeat that they suffered against Inter in this competition at the beginning of the month.
Spurs have scored in each of their seven matches away from home in all competitions and they will be confident of making their mark against the defending Dutch champions.
William Hill go 8/13 (1.62) that there are more than two goals in this game, while the same firm go 4/7 (1.57) that both teams are on target.
Both teams are capable of scoring goals and, given their perilous position in the group, they may have no option but to adopt an attack-minded approach on Wednesday.
The consequence of that could be a goal-laden game and punters may be tempted to take a chance on William Hill’s 13/8 (2.63) quote for more than three goals to be scored when these teams lock horns.
Over 3.5 goals at 13/8 (2.63) for a 1pt stake with William Hill
