Arsenal take on the visitors PSV Eindhoven in the round 1 match of UEFA Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, September 20th at Emirates Stadium (London).
Arsenal are currently undefeated in this season, but their victories haven't been very convincing. Things seem a bit shaky for the Gunners; in six matches this season, they've secured five victories, with only one of them having a two-goal difference. Considering the excellent form of the Dutch team that's visiting them, Arsenal could face some problems. I don't quite share the opinion of the bookmakers who heavily favor the home team. It's more likely that this match will be closely contested. Additionally, there are concerns about Arsenal's defense because they concede in nearly every match.

PSV are in excellent form right now, having played nine matches this season with only one draw; all the others ended in victories. Furthermore, PSV traditionally scores a lot of goals; they've scored 13 goals in just their last three matches. While most Dutch teams don't compare in strength to Arsenal, PSV have performed exceptionally well in the Champions League qualification, confidently defeating Scottish Rangers with a score of 5-1. So, it's unwise to underestimate PSV, and they are likely to play on equal terms with Arsenal or even outperform them.
There doesn't appear to be a clear favorite in this match. Two strong teams that are playing at a similar level, and if this match ends in a draw, it wouldn't be surprising. However, I would lean towards a handicap bet in favor of PSV. A handicap of (+1.5) for the away team looks like a reasonable choice.
Prediction for the match: PSV to win with +1.5 handicap.
