PSV and Borussia Dortmund: Previous Games 

The Dutch club PSV is enjoying a historic season under the tutelage of Peter Bosz, a former coach of Borussia Dortmund. During their time in the Eredivisie, PSV had 20 victories and only two draws. Against Arsenal (0:4) in the Champions League and Feyenoord in the KNVB Beker Round of 16, PSV experienced only two losses all season. During the Champions League group stage, PSV beat Sevilla and Lille, but Arsenal took first place. This past weekend, PSV cruised to a 2-0 victory against Heracles.

Borussia Dortmund, with PSG, Milan, and Newcastle, topped the “Group of Death” and emerged as a significant phenomenon in the group stage. After dropping their first group stage encounter to Paris Saint-Germain, the German runner-up won 11 of their 16 matches. After falling out of title contention, Edin Terzic’s Bundesliga squad aims for a top-four finish. Borussia Dortmund is currently in fourth place with 41 points.

Betting tips: PSV x Borussia Dortmund

Check out our predictions of the day for PSV vs. Borussia Dortmund

Prediction 1: PSV x Borussia Dortmund / PSV to win

Since PSV is known to be relentless and capable of destroying their opponents at Philips Stadion, goals are almost inevitable. But their performance in the group stage gives Dortmund hope to challenge their hosts and remain in the race for next month’s match in Germany.

Prediction 2: PSV x Borussia Dortmund / Both teams to score

We expect at least one goal from these two solid offensive clubs since they face off in this matchup. Are Peter Bosz and Edin Terzic, the managers, able to devise a strategy to beat their opponent? That doesn’t seem plausible based on recent form statistics, past head-to-heads, and the current odds from the bookies.

Although the betting community may not necessarily feel that BTTS – yes, is getting more probable, it is still a positive indicator that the chances are drifting on the BTTS – no result. Indeed, it seems that our forecast is unassailable.

Prediction 3: PSV x Borussia Dortmund / De Jong to score anytime

With 29 goals scored across all competitions, Luuk de Jong is enjoying his finest season. In his last four games, the Dutch forward has scored four goals.
