PSV vs Leicester Prediction: Conference League

PSV vs Leicester City Prediction: Conference League Match on 14.04.2022

The most exciting tie in the Europa Conference League quarterfinals will see PSV and Leicester City clash in their second leg on Thursday. Both sides will have expectations of reaching the next round, but which side will it be that reaches the semi-finals?


Europa Conference League Preview

Many expected an entertaining game between Leicester and PSV at the King Power in the previous tie. However, there was little to separate the sides, as they played out a very uneventful 0-0 draw in the East Midlands. Something will need to give as they meet for the return leg in the Netherlands on Thursday evening.

PSV will likely be most appeased with their performance in the first leg, as they stopped the Foxes taking an advantage back to the Netherlands. However, they also would have been slightly disappointed themselves, as they creased some excellent chances at the King Power and could have built an advantage to defend in front of their home fans.

Leicester haven’t been very good travellers since dropping into this competition, as they have effectively sealed their progression in the previous two rounds with fine wins at the King Power. That was evident in the previous round, as the Foxes beat Rennes 2-0 in the Midlands, before losing 2-1 in the game in France.

PSV also didn’t have an easy time of it in their previous home game in the competition, as they played out a 4-4 draw against Copenhagen. They won’t be able to afford giving away the same number of chances to Leicester on Thursday, as the Foxes are currently playing their best football of the season. Leicester warmed up for this fixture on Thursday with a comfortable 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace. Ademola Lookman and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall scored in the first half.

It will just be the second meeting between these two sides in European competition this week. The first meeting between PSV and Leicester ended in a 0-0 draw last week.

PSV vs Leicester City Prediction

The first leg between these sides was a cagey affair, and something will need to give this week. Leicester rested a couple of their star players at the weekend with this game in mind, and restoring the fresh players to the starting eleven could be key. I expect Leicester to progress, but I can also see under 2.5 goals being scored.
