PSV Eindhoven vs FC Barcelona / Champions League – Considering that this is a duel between the last and the first team on the table of this group, everything is quite clear, but the points are still more important to the host. PSV has only won one point, but they are hoping they can get at least a third place and they need to win. Barcelona has practically already secured placement in the round of sixteen, and probably the first place, unless they lose the remaining two games. The Catalans are again in crisis and they are three games without a win, while PSV has the maximum effect in the championship. In the first duel of these rivals, Barcelona has celebrated with 4-0 at Nou Camp.
PSV Eindhoven vs FC Barcelona begins 28.11.2018 at 21:00 CET
PSV is quite dominant in their domestic championship this season, while they did not manage to be competitive in the Champions League. They did not have the luck during the draw and they were in the toughest group, with three very strong rivals. They did not defeat anyone in the first four rounds and they only won one point against Tottenham on their field. Two defeats they experienced were minimal, and only Barcelona has mastered them with 4-0.
There is still hope in the remaining two rounds to maybe reach the third place and qualify in Europa League, but that is not very realistic either. That is why they play really fascinating in the Dutch championship and they have achieved all 13 wins. They have mastered Heerenveen with 3-0, and PSV will be practically complete in this duel, because only midfielder Thomas is absent.
Probable lineups PSV Eindhoven: Zoet – Dumfries, Schwaab, Viergever, Angelino – Hendrix, Rosario – Lozano, Pereiro, Bergwijn – L.de Jong
Barcelona practically did all the work in the first three rounds when they defeated all three rivals from the group. In the fourth round, they played a draw with Inter, but this is a very acceptable result that kept them in the first place. They want to stay there, which should not be a problem in the remaining two rounds and they can confirm that position after this game. The problem is that they are in a small crisis of results and the aforementioned draw with Inter was followed by a home defeat from Betis in LaLiga, while they last weekend played a draw with Athletic in Madrid.
It was not a particularly good show for Barcelona and little was missing to lose again, but they were saved by a reservist Dembele in the finish of the match. Because of that match, they have lost the leading position on the table, which is why they are one point behind Sevilla. Fortunately, they do not have a big imperative in this duel, because they are in huge problems with injuries. New on this list of injured layers are L.Suarez, Rafinha, S. Roberto and Arthur while the second goalkeeper Cillessen is alos absent. Maybe Coutinho and Rakitic get to be ready for this match.
Probable lineups FC Barcelona: ter Stegen – Semedo, Lenglet, Umtiti, J.Alba – Busquets, Vidal, Malcom – Messi, Munir, Dembele
PSV Eindhoven vs FC Barcelona PICK
PSV is not a team that can be underestimated, especially when they are the hosts, and now they have a higher motive. Barcelona is very weak and in such a composition, they are definitely vulnerable, and they are not in good shape anyway. That is why we expect good resistance of the hosts.
