PSV Eindhoven hosts Basel in the first leg of the Champions League qualification quarterfinals. The match will be played on Tuesday, July 23rd at Philips Stadion (Eindhoven)
PSV looked very decent in the local championship, letting powerful Ajax just three points ahead. And this is quite a decent figure, given what game Ajax showed last season. And PSV is ready to start the Champions League qualification! In the last season, the team of Van Bommel had to go through just one round of qualifying, After beating BATE, the Dutch got in the group, but now they have to go through three rounds already! Let's see how the Dutch team will cope with such a distance!

It can be said that Basel failed the last season. The team hopelessly lagged behind Young Boys long before the end of the season, having lost 20 points to the champion in total... Well, this is already the second season, when Basel gives gold to Young Boys, but before that, the team had held the throne of Swiss football for EIGHT YEARS. But now Basel is not so formidable in the European Cup arena either. Now the Swiss have no luck with the draw, which made them play away with a team at the level of PSV...
About three years ago, I would say that the class of teams is extremely similar! Now, PSV probably didn’t become stronger, but the Swiss team is clearly somehow degrading ... And PSV will be able to prove its class, gaining a home victory before the second leg!
Prediction for the match: PSV to win
