PSV vs Rosenborg: Go Dutch in Europa League dead rubber

Kick-off: 1755, 12/12/2019

Stadium: Philips Stadion

PSV and Rosenborg will both end their Europa League involvement on Thursday night, but the Dutch outfit are at least fancied to bow out on a high note.

Mark van Bommel’s men have picked up seven points in Group D, but even a win here would not help them to overhaul Sporting Lisbon or LASK Linz.

However, finishing off in front of their own fans should ensure they stay honest and see off opponents who have suffered five straight defeats so far.

We’re taking Evens for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game for our initial PSV vs Rosenborg prediction.

A Look At PSV Eindhoven’s Betting Odds

PSV opened up their campaign in fine style by beating Sporting 3-2 at Philips Stadion and romping to a 4-1 triumph over Rosenborg in Norway.

However, they were then held to a goalless draw here by LASK Linz before being hammered 4-1 by the same team in Austria, despite going ahead through an early penalty.

During a poor run of domestic and European results, which featured five losses in eight games, PSV were also pummelled 4-0 away to Sporting.

Thankfully, the Dutch outfit stopped the rot in spectacular style when thrashing Fortuna Sittard 5-0 in the Eredivisie here on Saturday, leading 3-0 at the break.

Van Bommel may make changes for this dead rubber but will be keen to keep morale high ahead of Sunday’s big trip to Feyenoord.

Looking at the PSV vs Rosenborg odds, we like 21/20 for the hosts to start brightly and be in front at half-time and full-time.

A Look At Rosenborg’s Betting Odds

Rosenborg kicked off with a narrow 1-0 defeat at LASK Linz but then seemed to have the stuffing knocked out of them with the home loss to PSV.

They failed to score in back-to-back defeats versus Sporting and were edged out 2-1 by LASK at home on Matchday 5.

The 26-times Norwegian champions have been below par on the domestic front this year, too.

Sunday’s 3-2 triumph over basement dwellers Ranheim was the latest in a long line of unconvincing displays, as they ended up third in the table, 16 points adrift of Molde.

Only three wins in 15 Tippeligaen road trips highlights how they have been poor travellers all season.

Let’s finish off our PSV vs Rosenborg betting tips by taking 21/20 for the hosts to win by more than one goal and 21/2 for a 3-1 scoreline.
