PSV to Win

Wednesday’s clash between PSV and Rangers is set up to be another thriller, with a Champions League group stage spot up for grabs. The first leg at Ibrox finished 2-2 and while the draw seemed the fair result, we’re siding with PSV in the second leg.

The Dutch side have impressed so far this season, with Ruud van Nistelrooy’s men winning both of their Eredivisie games and scoring nine goals in the process. They also scored four goals in their games against Monaco in the previous qualifying round.

PSV will have the home advantage and that will be crucial. Rangers’ away record in Europe isn’t great either. En route to the Europa League final last year, Rangers only won one of their seven games on the road.

It’s also worth noting that the home side will be fresh as they haven’t played since the first leg at Ibrox last week.

Rangers, meanwhile, were battling with Hibs in a 2-2 draw, which saw Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side go down to nine men after John Lundstram and Alfredo Morelos were sent off.

The home side might have too much for Rangers. PSV to Win kicks off our Bet Builder.

Over 2.5 Goals

The first leg finished 2-2 and we’re expecting more goals in the second.

There were 21 shots in the game at Ibrox, with 11 going on target. PSV managed to muster up four shots on target but that number will likely be a lot higher in front of their home fans.

Over 2.5 Goals has landed in both sides last four games in all competitions and we’re hoping that trend continues.

PSV and Rangers have plenty of attacking threat and the first goal will blow the game wide open. Over 2.5 Goals will do us.

Over 4.5 Cards

In Rangers’ two away games this season, the Scottish side picked up four cards on both occasions. With Champions League qualification on the line, we’re expecting more of the same.

PSV had three bookings in the first leg at Ibrox last week and Wednesday’s game could become stretched if either side takes the lead. There could be a few silly fouls to stop counter attacks and slow the game down. Over 4.5 Cards makes sense.

Connor Goldson to be Shown a Card

We’ve just mentioned about how we’re fancying cards but we’re doubling down and backing Connor Goldson to be Shown a Card. The Rangers centre-half has been a walking booking so far this season, with Goldson picking up a yellow in five of his seven appearances.

Goldson is up against the bustling Luuk de Jong, while he’ll also have tricky wingers Cody Gakpo and Ismael Saibari cutting inside. Goldson to be Shown a Card wraps up our Bet Builder.
