The Boeren in turn have remained in the two games against the Linz ASK winless and have therefore lost the direct comparison with the same point Austrians, which currently only enough for third place.
So while Sporting would be in the sixteenth finals with a home win, the Dutch will need an away win to overtake the Portuguese and have everything in their own hands on Matchday 6.
However, if the Norwegians win against Linz, Eindhoven would also have a point to jump into second place and to be able to make everything clear on Matchday 6 with a home win over Trondheim.
Sporting Lisbon vs PSV Eindhoven are favorites, according to odds of bookmakers, even though all three odds in the classic 3-way system are very close to each other.
A tight match is expected, as it was in the first leg already the case when the lamps at the end of the 3: 2 kept the happier ending for themselves. A result that is not only incorporated into the odds design, but also relevant for the prediction at Sporting Lisbon vs PSV Eindhoven.
Nevertheless, we consider it most sustainable at Sporting Lisbon Vs. PSV Eindhoven tip 1 to play. On the one hand, the Leoes bring a sensational home record in the group stage of the Europa League (won 14 of their 20 games – four draws and only two defeats).
And on the other hand, Eindhoven currently has a negative series and won only one of the last seven competitive matches, which is why the value is clearly in the Verde e brancos.
Sporting Lisbon – Statistics & Current Form
The list of achievements of Sporting Lisbon is long. 22 national championships, 17 cup wins, plus the European Cup Winners’ Cup 1964 and the 2005 UEFA Cup Final. Especially in the recent past, there was not much left for the Verde e brancos.
The last championship goes back to the year 2002. Only the Taca de Portugal could win the Leoes again this summer, which also drew the direct ticket to the group stage of the Europa League.
In the Primeira Liga, after all, once again neither city rivals Benfica nor FC Porto got past, which is also the case in the current season.
Currently, the Leoes, who have already changed their coach for the first time in the still young season at the end of September and even brought the inexperienced Silas, even only fourth place, because with Farmalicao still a surprise team stubbornly the connection to Benfica and Porto holds.
From the point of view of the Verde e brancos, however, there are already ten points behind in first place, which is why the first championship for 18 years is once again not really realistic.
Therefore, it would be even more important for the proud team to draw attention to themselves in the Europa League, where the Leoes practically belong to the inventory. Sporting is currently participating in the second most important European competition for club teams for the ninth time – a competition record.
To be impressively emphasized is certainly the home record. After Sporting remained unbeaten in the first 20 home games in the Europa League, is currently a balance sheet in the group stage to book, which is second to none. 14 of the 20 games in the Estádio José Alvalade XXI won the Leoes in the preliminary round (four draws, two defeats).
As a result, we consider it appropriate to play Tip 1 against PSV Eindhoven at Sporting Lisbon, especially since the momentum was also on the side of the Portuguese. The troupe of Silas has won five of their last six competitive matches, but they are not completely carefree in this second leg.
Four top performers of the Leoes are currently injured: Sebastián Coates, Fernando, Rodrigo Battaglia and Jovane Cabral.

➦ Ribeiro – Borja – Ilori – Mathieu – Neto – Rosier – Henrique – Doumbia – Fernandes – Vietto – Bolasie

PSV Eindhoven – Statistics & Current Form
As national champion started PSV Eindhoven in the 2018/19 season still in the Champions League and retired without a single victory as a group last sang- and soundless, while the then runner-up Ajax advanced to the semi-finals.
Last season, the Godenzonen became champions and the Boeren only finished second. The misery in the premier class, however, continued. As Dutch runner-up Eindhoven had in the qualifying round – and failed already in the first game at FC Basel.
This resulted in two more qualifying rounds for the Europa League group stage, through which the team of Mark van Bommel worked well, but which certainly affected the freshness of the team.
Finally, the Boeren finally came completely out of step. After two victories at the start of the preliminary round of the Europa League and neck-and-neck races with Ajax for the Eredivisie championship standings, all competitions in a row were the result of a series of six games without a win in a row.
Negative highlights: the 0: 3 in Utrecht, the 0: 4 at home against Alkmaar and the 1: 4 at the Linz ASK. It is all the more surprising that at Sporting Lisbon vs PSV Eindhoven the odds of the bookmakers are not very clear in the direction of the home side.
Because not only in the Champions League are currently new games in a row without victory to book (three draws, six defeats), but also the balance in the group stage of the Europa League is anything but good in foreign places. Five of the last eleven away games lost the lights (four wins, two draws).
Although the descent could be ended for the moment after Sunday’s narrow 2-1 victory over Heerenveen, Eindhoven are still standing with their backs to the wall in Lisbon. Because of the tight group conditions, the Boeren need the away win to have it at home against Trondheim on the last matchday.
