PSV Eindhoven vs Monaco Betting Odds

 

 

PSV Eindhoven are coming off of a 3-1 win over PEC Zwolle at the weekend. The win was the Lightbulbs’ third in a row in all competitions. Confidence should be high within the PSV Eindhoven squad. The team has played nine times this season at home posting a record of 6W-2D-1L. PSV Eindhoven have outscored opponents 24-12 this term.

 

Monaco have posted an away record of 4W-2D-2L this season in all competitions. The Monegasque have scored 12 goals while conceding nine times on their travels. Inconsistency has been the problem for Monaco this season. The team is coming off of a 2-0 loss to Lyon in the league.

Bookies’ best betting odds on a PSV Eindhoven win at full-time are at 5/4. The Lightbulbs have not played Monaco in competitive European action since 2004-05. The teams met in the Champions League that season with PSV Eindhoven winning both matches by a combined score of 3-0. The teams have not met in over 15 years and the previous matches between them should have little impact on Thursday’s outcome.

Monaco’s best betting odds to win at full-time are at 23/10. Monaco’s last two away games ended without victories. Both teams drew against Real Sociedad in the Europa League and the best betting odds on a stalemate at full-time are at 5/2.

PSV Eindhoven vs Monaco Team News

PSV Eindhoven manager Roger Schmidt will be without midfielder Ibrahim Sangare. He was sent off against Real Sociedad when the teams drew 2-2. Midfielder Davy Propper could take Sangare’s place in the centre of the park. Attacking sensation Noni Madueke came back into the team at the weekend following an injury. He should be nailed on for one of the forward positions.

PSV Eindhoven are led in goals by the duo of Eran Zahavi and Cody Gakpo this season. Each player has four goals in 11 games in the Eredivisie and Europa League combined. Gakpo has been brilliant at creating chances for the team. He has seven assists this season.

Kovac should have midfielders Aurelien Tchouameni and Sofiane Diop back in the team. Both players missed out on Monaco’s 2-0 loss to Lyon due to suspension. Tchouameni and Diop are both key players for Kovac and will likely play big roles in the team on Thursday.

Diop has scored three goals in 10 matches in all competitions. Wissam Ben Yedder is likely to start in attack for the Monegasque. Ben Yedder has scored five goals in 11 matches in all competitions this season.
