Sporting vs PSV: Lions can roar to Europa League victory

Kick-off: 2000, 28/11/2019

Stadium: Estadio Jose Alvalade

TV: BT Sport

Sporting have recovered well from a 3-2 loss away to PSV on Matchday 1 of Europa League Group D and are fancied to gain revenge in Portugal.

The Lions rattled off three straight wins in this competition following a change of leadership and have also shown improved form when on domestic duty.

They now face a Dutch outfit which has plenty of questions to answer and 6/5 for a home victory is a percentage pick for our first Sporting vs PSV prediction.

A Look At Sporting Lisbon’s Betting Odds

Sporting showed good spirit to come from behind and beat LASK Linz 2-1 at Estadio Jose Alvalade, with Luiz Phellype and Bruno Fernandes on target.

Yannick Bolasie, on loan from Everton, then grabbed the only goal of the game when Rosenborg visited this venue.

The Lions seemed to have grown in confidence when winning the reverse fixture 2-0 in Norway, where Sebastian Coates and Fernandes did the damage.

Fernandes continues to be linked with the likes of Tottenham and Manchester United and netted for Portugal in Luxembourg during the international break.

He struck from the penalty spot when Sporting were edged out by PSV in Holland and can contribute towards another entertaining encounter here.

Looking at the Sporting vs PSV odds, there is plenty of appeal in 11/5 for a home win and over 2.5 goals.

A Look At PSV Eindhoven’s Betting Odds

PSV looked set to storm through this pool when following up their opening victory with a 4-1 romp away to Rosenborg.

Highly-rated young forward Donyell Malen had opened the scoring versus Sporting and then bagged a brace in Norway.

However, Netherlands international Malen suffered an ankle injury in mid-October and PSV fell apart both in Europe and the Dutch Eredivisie.

Drawing 0-0 with LASK Linz in Eindhoven was only a minor setback, but a subsequent 4-1 loss to the same team in Austria had alarm bells ringing.

Those matches came during a miserable run of domestic results, with Mark van Bommel’s side picking up just one point from four games in Holland’s top flight.

The international break may have helped them to regroup, but this is still a tough trip to be making at this point.

Let’s add 17/4 for the hosts to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 to our Sporting vs PSV betting tips.
