Sturm Graz is an outsider in this match against PSV, but the Austrians should not be underestimated. They have a great start to the season, 6 wins, 2 draws, and 1 defeat. In the league, they occupy the 2nd position on the table just behind Salzburg. Since coach Izler came last summer, the team has been playing significantly better. They have only one defeat at home this season. In addition, they have the best attack in the league with 24 goals scored in 9 games. With 17 goals in 7 league games, PSV has one of the best attacks in the Dutch Eredivisie, but the main problem is the weak defense, because they conceded 10 goals so far, which is also the worst in relation to the first 5 teams in the league. In the last match in the league, they lost to William II (2:1), although they were absolute favorites. Coach Schmidt has some problems with injuries and unavailable today are Madueke (6/2), Popper (5/1), and Ledezma (3/0).
We have two offensive teams that are still waiting for their first victory in this year’s Europa League group stage. According to the odds from the bookmaker, PSV is a clear favorite. But the form does not show that PSV has shown its insecurity in the last 5 games in the league, while Sturm Graz is in a very good mood and has won the last 3 games.
