This is one of the fixtures in today’s matches that will have the least amount of tension involved. Both the teams have qualified for the next round and it is just a matter of who tops the group. Liverpool will want to finish first but it surely would not be a disaster if it didn’t happen. We can expect changes from the Liverpool boss, Rafael Benitez. The Reds are not in their prime, and are playing rather poorly in their domestic league, while on the other hand PSV are having a good run of results and are toping the Dutch Eredivisie by 3 clear points ahead of Ajax.
Rafael Benitiz could give Gonzalez the place on the bench, with Luis Garcia favorite to start on the left midfield position. Kuyt might be given a rest, and Rafa could partner Bellamy and Crouch upfront for this match. It will be interesting to see if Steven Gerrard plays in the centre if at all he makes an appearance at Anfield tonight. Daniel Agger is almost certain to take the place of Sami Hyppia after returning from injury. We could also see the likes of Zenden and Warnock make appearances in this virtually dead fixture.
It will be interesting to see the return of former Liverpool defender Krompkamp who was on loan last season. The Dutch outfit are having a few injury problems with striker Patrick Kluivert not fit for this match. Mika Vayrynen and Ismail Aissati also miss out due to injuries.
I am leaning towards a draw for this match, the odds for that result is at 3.30. You can also look for a slightly more safer bet with an Asian Handicap on PSV ( +0.5 ) at 1.975. Any team can win this match, it just depends who has more hunger than the other. Whatever the end result maybe, a first half draw is imminent and that is at good odds of 2.10.
