PSV vs Lens Prediction: On Wednesday at the Philips Stadion, PSV will host Lens in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.
The hosts’ two consecutive draws following a 4-0 loss to Arsenal in the first game of the season show that they have yet to win a match in the competition. In contrast, the visitors have begun their campaign undefeated with two draws in three games.
The rematch between the two teams occurred in France the previous month and ended in a 1-1 draw. PSV took the lead in the 54th minute when Johan Bakayoko broke the impasse, but Lens equalized 11 minutes later through Elye Wahi.
With a 6-0 victory over Heracles on Saturday, the hosts maintained their perfect record in the league and have won consecutive games in the Eredivisie. A goalless draw against Lorient in Ligue 1 on Saturday extended the visitors’ unblemished streak across all competitions to nine games.

Comparison of PSV and Lens Prediction
Lampen have scored eleven goals in their last two Eredivisie matches, bringing their season total to 100 percent. Remarkably, their performance in the Champions League has not been able to replicate that form; they have scored only three goals in three matches and conceded seven.
In European competitions, they have suffered a single loss in their last seven home meetings against French opponents. With seven of their last nine home contests featuring at least three goals scored, they will attempt to capitalize on their goal-scoring prowess.
One victory stands among Les Sang et Or’s seven travel contests across all competitions. They have gone five games without scoring away from home and may have difficulty scoring here. As of this moment, they have gone undefeated in travel contests against Dutch opponents.
They enter the contest with a nine-game unblemished streak during which they have conceded just five goals. In this match, their defensive prowess will be a crucial factor.
Although Peter Bosz’s squad enters the match in excellent form, they have labored in their last two Champions League home contests, with their last victory occurring in 2015.
Taking this into consideration, as well as the current defensive form of the visitors, a scoreless draw is possible.
Lens Prediction: PSV 1-1
