On Tuesday, 24 August, the second leg of the Champions League qualifying round will take place, in which PSV will host Portugal’s Benfica. The starting whistle will sound at 22:00 Kyiv time.
PSV is approaching the decisive meeting in the status of a favorite. Yes, the Dutch club lost the first match with a score of 1: 2, but you can’t say that it was the game. Behind with a score of 0: 2, the “red-whites” won back one goal and created chances to win back. Roger Schmidt’s wards show good football and results at the start of the season.
Before the meeting with Benfica, the red-whites did not notice Galatasaray and Midtjylland in the Champions League qualification. And the main victory happened in the match for the Dutch Super Cup, where Ajax was destroyed with a score of 4: 0. Before the decisive match in the fight for the group round of the Champions League PSV defeated the club “Kambuur” (4: 1). The leaders of the Dutch are in excellent shape. Mario Goetze found himself in this team, having already scored 4 goals in six matches.
Benfica won the first game. But this match was extremely competitive. The team scored an early goal and added another goal to it at the end of the first half. This helped Jorge Jesus’ wards to keep a positive result.
Before the match with PSV Benfica, Moscow’s Spartak passed without any problems, having shipped two balls to the Russians in each game. In the Portuguese championship, the Eagles are also doing well. Benfica have beaten Moreirensi, Aroca, Zhil Vicente and, together with Sporting, are holding first place.
In total, Benfica has six wins in all six games of the 2021/22 season, while the team conceded only two goals in them. The Ukrainian striker of the Eagles Roman Yaremchuk is also doing well. The 25-year-old striker has 1 goal and 4 assists for the club. We should expect Roman to appear at the start and in this game. The main competitor of the Ukrainian Haris Seferovich is injured.
