PSV vs Basel – UEFA Champions League :On this 2nd qualifying round for the 2019/20 edition of the Champions League
We have an encounter between 2 teams that on the past couple of years tend to play in the group stage of the competition.
PSV, that on the last season, led throughout the majority of the season in the Dutch league, was overtaken by a surprising Ajax, team that not only surprised due to the recovery in the Dutch Eredivisie but also surprised in Europe reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League.
The Dutch vice-champions this season lost their biggest offensive reference, Luuk de Jong, that scored 28 goals last season and was the top goalscorer in the league, to Sevilla. Another important departure was the one of the left back Angeliño that was transferred to Pep Guardiola’s Man City.
The Dutch side reinforced the offensive sector with Bruma and Affelay, but neither of them has the characteristics of Luuk de Jong.
However, Lammers might become the offensive reference of the team, young player that was rotating last season and gaining experience at Heerenveen, finishing the season with 16 goals scored and on this pre-season, he has been leaving some good impressions.
Basel, after winning the Swiss League 8 times in a row lost their hegemony, finishing behind Young Boys on the last 2 seasons.
The financial crisis that the club has been going through on the past 2 years led to a strong disinvestment on the team and consequent loss of some of their most influential players that ended up having a big impact on the sporting results of the team,
straight away with the loss of their dominance on Swiss football to Young Boys, and that also happened last season, where the team wasn’t even able to qualify for the Europa League’s group stage, situation that had never happened on the past decade.
Right now, Basel seems to be more stable, not making big changes from last season, only losing 1 influential player, the Czech player Suchy, but they continue to be far from having a team to think about returning to their golden times where they dominated Swiss football and performed well in Europe.
The team already has their season underway and they started off in the best possible way with a convincing victory away from home against Sion by 4-1.

PSV vs Basel – Prediction and Betting Tip: :
Dutch football is once again going through a very exciting period, much due to Ajax’s excellent performance in the Champions League last season, but not only because of that, even the Dutch side after a couple of years with results below the expectations has been better.
All of that has been bosting Dutch football and PSV will want to continue giving visibility to Dutch football and obviously due to financial questions get into the Champions League’s group stage.
Basel has been presenting interesting results on the pre-season, but this team is very far from their glory days with excellent European performances and therefore they won’t be able to be great obstacle against the Dutch.
The aspect in favour in of the Swiss will be being on a more advanced stage in terms of physical preparation because their season has already started.
However, PSV is playing at home and clearly with a superior roster shouldn’t waste the opportunity of gaining an advantage in this tie.
