PSV vs Rosenborg – Prediction (Europa League – 12.12.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Typically high-octane affairs, six of PSV Eindhoven’s last seven UEFA Europa League (UEL) matches have produced over 2.5 goals (3.71 per match on average). Notably, PSV have scored 3+ goals in over half of their European excursions this season (57.14%). After two thumping defeats in their previous UEL games, this clash is nothing more than a dead rubber for PSV. However, when these two sides were last drawn in a group together, PSV won the away leg with both sides scoring, as they also did this campaign, whilst winning the home leg without reply.

Should Rosenborg lose this match, they will become the first side since 2016/17 (Qabala) to be eliminated from the UEL group stage without a single point, and only the fifth ever side to do so. The visitors have scored just twice so far and are yet to find the net away from home. That adds to an already woeful UEL away record which sees Rosenborg winless since 2012/13 (D3, L10 – excluding qualifiers).
Further compounding matters, Rosenborg have not kept a clean sheet in their last 23 UEL away games (excluding qualifiers). However, the visitors have conceded either one or two goals in five of their six European away games this term.

Players to watch: 63.16% (36/57) of PSV’s goals in all competitions this season were scored or assisted by Donyell Malen or Steven Bergwijn. Rosenborg’s Björn Johnsen has two goals and an assist from three appearances vs PSV in the Eredivisie prior to his move (Den Haag, AZ).

Stat attack: Four of PSV’s last five victories in all competitions saw a 3+ goal margin. Only Sevilla (four) have received fewer bookings than both PSV and Rosenborg this UEL group stage (six apiece). Five of Rosenborg’s last six competitive away games saw both teams score and over 2.5 goals.
