PSV Eindhoven will take on Galatasaray in the first leg of the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League on 22nd July at Philips Stadion.
PSV have reached at least the group stage three times between 2015-2018, but have not returned to Europe’s top table since then. They have become more acclimated to playing in the Europa League in recent years and will be keen to make the most of home advantage on Wednesday in order to escape relegation this season.
They’ve had a fantastic preseason, going 11 games without losing since April amd would look to continue that momentum.
Galatasaray has qualified for the Champions League group stage in two of the previous three seasons, most recently in 2020/21.
They’ve also gone undefeated in preseason action. Galatasaray will be coming off a two-game winning streak into this match, and will know that a win here would set them up nicely for the second leg in Istanbul next week.
PSV and Galatasaray have met on six occasions with PSV winning four games to Galatasaray’s two victories. They last encountered in 2006 where PSV emerged on top with a 2-0 victory.
