PSV v Leicester betting tips: All square as Foxes go Dutch

| 14.04.2022

Preview, odds and PSV v Leicester betting tips

Leicester could not find a way past PSV Eindhoven last week and their Europa Conference League quarter-final is still goalless heading into the second leg.

The Foxes missed the chance to take control of the tie at the King Power Stadium and are now the 31/20 underdogs to get through.

They will still fancy their chances on Thursday, though, as they head to the Philips Stadion, where the match kicks off at 5.45pm and is live on BT Sport, as we pick out some PSV v Leicester betting tips.

First-leg frustration for Foxes

Leicester would have hoped to secure a lead to take to the Netherlands but the tie is still 0-0 following an even and competitive first leg.

Harvey Barnes hit the crossbar and Kelechi Iheanacho missed a golden first-half chance to give Leicester crucial breathing space.

PSV had their own moments and Kasper Schmeichel saved well from Mario Gotze before the Foxes escaped without punishment when Ricardo Pereira clipped Cody Gakpo in the area. Referee Ivan Kruzliak ignored the visitors’ penalty claims, with no VAR available.

PSV are now 4/9 to go through and 20/23 to win the second leg in normal time, with Leicester priced at 11/4 for victory in 90 minutes.

There was little to separate the teams in the first leg and the draw is 12/5 in the PSV Eindhoven v Leicester odds, with the Foxes 12/1 to win in extra time and 11/1 to prevail on penalties.

Away form a worry

Leicester’s away results in the Premier League have been disappointing this season and another poor away performance will surely see them exit the competition.

Only three of their 11 wins have come away from the King Power Stadium and Leicester have conceded an average of two goals a game on the road. Leicester also lost 2-0 at Rennes in the previous round but a 2-1 home win saw them through.

The hosts are 17/20 to score at least two goals here which looks a decent option for PSV v Leicester betting tips, while a PSV win and both teams to score is 13/5.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers still believes his side have what it takes to progress, saying: “We have shown enough and seen enough to know we can go there and win.

“We showed our resilience defensively and we’ll go there with enough hope that they’ll probably open up a bit more, which will give us a bit more space.

“With a little bit more finesse and precision in our passing then we might have been able to open the scoring. We’re still in a good place.”

Europe the priority

Rodgers completely reshaped his team for Sunday’s league game against Crystal Palace and the seven changes he made suggest the Europa Conference League is now his priority.

His team made light of the reshuffle and the 2-1 win means Leicester have some momentum and confidence after just two defeats in their last 10 outings.

PSv were 2-0 winners at home to RKC Waalwijk on Sunday and are four points behind leaders Ajax but have looked shaky defensively at home.

In four matches against fellow top-five sides on home soil, PSV have suffered three defeats and conceded 10 goals so an open game would suit the visitors.

An away win and both teams to score can be added to PSV v Leicester betting tips at 11/2, while both teams to score in both halves is 11/1.
