PSV Eindhoven and Rangers’ Champions League qualifying playoff match is on a knife-edge going into Wednesday’s second leg at Philips Stadion, just like it was a year ago.
The first match between the two clubs ended in a crazy 2-2 draw at Ibrox for the second year in a row, with Peter Bosz’s team twice coming from behind to salvage a point.
PSV vs Rangers
For the sixth consecutive year, PSV Eindhoven hopes to advance to the group stage of a European competition. In the previous five years, the Red and Whites’ best performance was their run to the quarterfinals of the Europa Conference League in 2021–2022. PSV enters the tournament for this season in strong shape. They defeated Sturm Graz in the previous round, winning both home and away matches 7-2 overall.
They’ll try to continue their winning streak. PSV has played five games so far this season, winning each one while recording two clean sheets. They won 3-1 over Vitesse in their most recent encounter. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of PSV’s past four games. In three of their last four games, both teams scored.
Rangers, on the other hand, have struggled to recapture their 2022–2022 Conference League final-winning European form. Last season, the Scottish team advanced past the qualification rounds to the Champions League group stage, where they lost every match.
However, they have improved this year and have yet to lose in any of their first three games. The first matchup is at home against PSV for Rangers, who have two games remaining before the Champions League group stage. On Tuesday, these two teams will face off in the playoffs at Rangers’ Ibrox Stadium in an effort to gain a first-leg edge.
Rangers had a shaky start to the season, but they bounced back brilliantly, and they enter this encounter with a perfect record after four games. They won 2-1 over Greenock Morton in their most recent League Cup contest.
To begin with, PSV comes into this match with a run of nine games without a loss in all competitions. Seven of the contests were won by the “Red and Whites,” who also scored two goals or more in each of their previous five games. Additionally, they have a very strong recent home record in Europe. They have won their previous four home matches in Europe, including triumphs over Sevilla and Arsenal.
Although Rangers have been playing well lately, they have had trouble recently in Europe, especially away from home. In their previous nine away contests in Europe, the visitors have only recorded one victory. Seven of those contests ended in losses.

Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
