Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Arsenal vs PSV


Arsenal started the season strong, with a five-match winning streak in the Premier League and scoring at least two goals per game. The first, and so far the only, misfire was the defeat of Manchester United at Old Trafford in the 6th round: 1-3. After that, there were 4 more victories, including success in battles against Tottenham (3-1) and Liverpool (3-2). In the standings, the Gunners are in the lead, ahead of the closest pursuers by 4 points already. Particular attention deserves Gabriel Jesus, who moved from Man City this summer. He has 5 goals and 3 assists in 10 rounds.

In the first round of the group stage of the Europa League, Arsenal defeated Zurich away "with little blood": 2-1. Another rookie of the Gunners, Marquinhos, became the hero of the fight. This 19-year-old Brazilian scored a goal + pass, and this is in his debut match for a new team. After that, Arteta's team had no problems with Boude-Glimt: 3-0 in London and 1-0 away. With a maximum of three rounds of points, Arsenal are half a step away from reaching the playoffs.


The Red-Whites started the season promisingly: they won the Dutch Super Cup by beating Ajax 5-3, they started with 4 big wins in the championship, and in the Champions League they were stronger than Monaco (1-1 and 3-2) in the 3rd qualifying round. However, PSV failed to qualify for the group stage of the Champions League, unexpectedly losing at home to Glasgow Rangers with a score of 0-1 (2-2 in Scotland). In Eridivizia, the Nistelrooy team “relaxed the rolls”: lost to Twente (1-2) and Cambuur (0-3), minimally beat Waalwijk (1-0), Feyenoord (4-3) and Heerenveen (1-0), and only in last round "broke off" in Utrecht, beating him with a score of 6-1. In the standings, the Red-Whites are currently in second place, three points behind Ajax.

In the first round of the group stage of the Europa League, PSV shared points with Boude-Glimt: 1-1. The Dutch had the initiative, but they could have lost if not for a couple of fantastic saves from Benitez. This was followed by two big wins over Zurich (5-1 and 5-0), which secured PSV in second place in the standings.

Game Totals Prediction

All 6 face-to-face meetings were held in the Champions League, half of them ended in a draw. The last time the teams met was in 2007.

The next two face-to-face meetings will determine at least one playoff participant. The Gunners, by the way, will only need one point, but in their arena they will certainly play only to win. The scoring and winning streak of the Arteta team pushes us to the bets "Arsenal with Handicap (-1.0)" for 1.77 and "Arsenal Over (1.5)" for 1.49. Considering PSV's high performance and Arsenal's not the most reliable defense, the best bet is "both teams to score" at 1.68.
