In the 3rd round of the Europa League group round, there will be an interesting confrontation in the Dutch Eindhoven. On Thursday, 21 October 2021, the local PSV club will host Monaco at the Philips Arena. The game will start at 22:00 UTC.
Both teams are currently sharing the first and second places in Group B. Based on the current tournament situation, the upcoming game can determine the favorite of the group. Now let us try to make a prediction for the PSV vs Monaco match and hope it will be correct.
The Dutch do not betray themselves in the current UEL, for they keep doing their best to earn points in every match of the group round. In a tough match with Sociedad in the first round, Roger Schmidt’s wards, with great difficulty, achieved a draw. Then in the next round, the Dutch defeated Austrian Sturm 4-1. As a result, the Dutch have 4 points gained and have good chances of getting into the spring part of the tournament.
The Monegasques are still cautious in the competition. After two rounds, Niko Kovac’s team has 4 points gained from a 1-0 victory over Sturm in the first round and a 1-1 draw with Real Sociedad in the second round. In the League 1 championship, the Monegasques also have not shown impressive results yet. In the last round, the Monegasques lost 0-2 to Lyon and resultantly dropped to 11th position in the standings.
The rivals have met each other 6 times in official tournaments. Two games ended in a draw, while each team won twice in the remaining four matches.
In a situation like this, it is difficult to single out a clear favorite. PSV has more chances to win, however, Monaco can also bring an unpleasant surprise to the hosts. We offer you to bet on effective football to be performed by both teams. Our prediction for the PSV vs Monaco match adheres to this same version.
Probable result – Both teams will score.
