PSV vs. AS Monaco Prediction

PSV defeated their bitter rival Ajax 5-3 in the Super Cup to kick off the new Dutch football season in the best way possible before failing to secure the one-goal lead last week against Monaco, allowing the equalizer with 10 minutes to go till the end of the match. They immediately returned to winning ways last weekend kicking off their domestic league with a convincing 4-1 win against FC Emmen.

On the other side, the Monegasques were very lucky to keep their UCL playoffs spot alive thanks to a late equalizer. Monaco started the French Ligue 1 on Saturday with a 2-1 win on the road against Strasbourg. That was dominating performance from Philippe Clement's squad, a boost of confidence ahead of Tuesday’s clash.

This summer Ruud van Nistelrooy was appointed as PSV coach as a replacement for Roger Schmidt. This is the first season for Ruud as the head coach so every game could be crucial for him. Speculation surrounding Cody Gakpo's future with PSV is not letting up amid links with a switch to either Manchester United or Arsenal, but Van Nistelrooy is not prepared to lose the prolific attacker before PSV's European fate is sealed

Arguably the pick of the UCL qualifiers, Monaco and PSV promise another entertaining clash. Last season, these two teams competed against one another in the same group of the UEFA Europa League, taking first and third place, respectively. On the road, Monaco managed to beat PSV forcing them to finish third and "get relegated" to the Conference League.

For AS Monaco, Aleksandr Golovin and Kevin Volland will both return to the starting lineup after serving suspensions in Ligue 1’s opener against Strasbourg. PSV scored 17 goals in their last five games alone while their opponents have scored but also allowed many goals recently. The visitors have contributed on the scoreboard in their previous 20 games across all competitions and we expect them to extend that superb goalscoring run.

PSV vs. AS Monaco Pick

Pick: Over 2.5 goals in the match at -175 (Bet $75 to win $100)

Rangers vs. Royale Union SG Start Time and Odds

Rangers vs. Royale Union SG Prediction

For a team who got promoted only last year in the Belgium top-flight league to beat the Europa League finalists is a major upset. Rangers were 1-2 penalties away from reaching the Champions League spots after losing to Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEL final and they are now 90 minutes away from missing out on a first UCL group stage appearance since 2010.

Rangers have a huge task on their hands to overturn a 2-0 deficit and progress to the next stage. Rangers were very poor in that defeat but bounced back with a league victory over Kilmarnock at the weekend. They know the importance of turning this result around, both financially and competitively and they are a different animal on home soil. Let’s not forget last season’s amazing home run in Europe when they surprised teams like Dortmund, RB Leipzig, or Braga.

They held a half-time lead at Ibrox in the round of 16, quarter-finals, and semi-finals of Europe's second-tier club competition and they need to enter this clash all guns blazing. Rangers are capable of putting in special performances in front of their own supporters and we expect a convincing victory. It’s hard to predict if they will qualify further in the UCL playoffs but we expect them to lead at HT and win at FT. It’s important to note that the visitors won just one of their last six games away from home.

Rangers vs Royale Union SG Pick

Pick: Rangers HT/FT at +170 (Bet $100 to win $170)

Alex Campean has been a soccer fan since 1990 when he watched the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy. He knows everything about the top 5 European leagues, Champions League and Europa League and he is well known for his “trade-mark” “Alex Classic” bet (both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match). He’s very disciplined, follows a strict set of rules, and has great bankroll management. He’s our European soccer specialist and he's having an average of 55 units of profit in the last 7 years with his soccer picks. He’s all about positive energy, respect, and long-term profit and if you ever hear “Alex’s last-minute goal” that means he did it again winning a bet in the last minute of the game, so never lose hope.
