PSV Eindhoven vs Barcelona
PSV Eindhoven will face Barcelona in the 5th round of CL.
PSV don't have real chances to progress in CL or EL. They have home match against Barca and away game against Inter where more than 1 or 2 points for them would be a huge surprise. Still PSV have only 1 point after the draw against Tottenham , but there is an obvious difference of PSV performance when they play away from home and as hosts. At home ground they have 1:2 loss against Inter and also 2:2 against Tottenham. In Eredivisie PSV still didn't drop a single point and now they have to face a team which is qualified for the next round and with a lot of injury problems.
OK, Barca totally outplayed Eindhoven at Camp Nou with 4:0, but I am not so confident they can do it once again. I expect a minimal win for the Spaniards. They will miss so many players, while some of them are very important. They are Suarez, Arthur, Sergi Roberto, Rafinha, Vermaelen and Samper. I am not so confident that they will risk Rakitic in this game, so still they have Dembele, Messi and Coutinho, but they are weakened for sure as a squad.
I expect PSV to find the way to score also against Barca at home, but to lose with maybe a goal difference, something like 1:2. Still there is a quality gap between these two clubs!
