Monaco to win again
Despite Monaco’s recent loss, they have been playing well over the past couple of months; Monaco have won six of their last ten games, drawing two and losing two. It’s important to note that those draws and losses all came on the road; Monaco are four from four at home in that stretch. PSV tend to fall short when they play against big teams; their biggest losses include a 5-0 loss to Ajax, and 4-0 loss to Feyenoord. Additionally, Monaco won the first leg of this tie on the road, they should be able to win at home.
Both teams to score
In spite of PSV’s shortcomings, they know how to score goals. PSV have scored in seven of their last eight games in all competitions; conversely, they’ve conceded in all of their last ten games. As a result of this, seven of PSV’s last eight games have seen both teams scoring. Monaco have scored their fair share of goals; they’ve scored in eight of their last ten games. With this in mind, we’re backing both teams to score, like they did in the first leg.
Plenty of goals
Finally, we’re backing the over/under goals market. We’ve talked about how PSV score and concede a lot; we should also point out that all of their last 12 games went over 2.5. PSV’s most recent games have seen even more goals, as 12 goals have been scored in their last two games. Monaco’s games tend to go over this line too, six of their last nine games have seen over 2.5 goals. All signs point to a high-scoring affair, so we should expect a few goals in this match.
