PSV News and Form
PSV couldn’t get the better of their great rivals Ajax in the Eredivisie last season, finishing three points behind them in the race for the title. So they are making another run at the Champions League. They were in the group stage of last season’s competition having qualified from entry at the playoff round. They have further to go this season to get back to the main draw.
In last season’s group stage, they failed to win any of their six games (D2 L4) in a tough group against Spurs, Barcelona and Inter Milan. They will want to make the most of home advantage, however, they have taken just one win in their last ten European home games (D3 L6). PSV have managed only one clean sheet in their last ten European fixtures. The Dutch side has a 37% win rate in Champions League games from 167 played.

FC Basel also took a second-place finish in their respective league campaign last season. They finished a whopping 20 points behind winners Young Boys and Basel themselves were 25 points above third-placed Lugano. The interesting thing going into this tie is that Basel holds a six-match undefeated history against Dutch sides, winning five of those. Last season Basel were dumped out of the qualification campaign at this very stage against PAOK.
Switzerland have just opened their domestic season, with Basel collecting a 4-1 win over Sion. FC Basel’s record in the Champions League/Europa Cup is about a 40% win rate from 118 played. Just recently as the 2017/18 they were last sixteen finishers in the competition. Their best-ever performance in the European Cup was back in the 1973/74 season when they were losing quarter-finalist.
