Dutch side PSV Eindhoven will play Leicester City in their quarter-final fixture, in what is sure to be an absorbing game of football.
With both sides having squads consisting of some very talented players, we are expecting a cagey affair, but with the attacking talent both sides possess, there will definitely be a few goals in this one.
Possessing World Cup winner Mario Gotze, who although hasn’t had the career many argue he should have, the Dutch side have themselves a talented and dangerous player who can create chances and score goals. And with young attackers Noni Madueke and Cody Gakpo, the latter of which is already vice-captain at the club at only 20 years of age, also showing promise, they can cause Leicester problems.
In their four matches played this season since dropping out of the Europa League group stages, they have not suffered a loss, picking up two wins and two draws and scoring an average of 2.5 goals in those four fixtures.
History is also on PSV’s side, with the club having previously won European silverware. The Rood-Witten astonishingly picked up the Champions League under Guus Hiddink’s stewardship back in 1988. They have also tasted success in Europe’s second competition previously, picking up the Europa League trophy (UEFA Cup) a decade earlier in 1978.
The odds of PSV winning the competition are at 8/1.
