PSV vs. Arsenal
In a Champions League dead-rubber, PSV Eindhoven and Arsenal will face each other at the Philips Stadion on Tuesday evening, closing out successful Group B campaigns.
Both teams have already secured a spot in the last-16 draw, with the hosts as runners-up and Arsenal as group winners. However, the Gunners, in particular, have an incentive to address some recent shortcomings in the Netherlands.

On the penultimate matchday, they surpassed their previous feat, securing a spot in the knockout stage. Despite Sevilla going 2-0 up through Sergio Ramos and Youssef En-Nesyri, PSV turned the tide with goals from Ismael Saibari, a Nemanja Gudelj own goal, and Ricardo Pepi’s injury-time header, confirming PSV’s second-placed finish and dashing Sevilla’s progression hopes. The touchline celebrations for Bosz and his team reflected the unbridled joy of their accomplishment.
What to remember – PSV vs. Arsenal
Despite Arteta’s natural demand for a response from his players, neither the Spaniard nor Arsenal fans should lose sleep over the outcome of this inconsequential tie.
PSV is expected to make amends for their 4-0 defeat at the Emirates. However, potential attacking absences for the hosts might affect their chances of securing a second home win over the Gunners in two seasons. With both teams potentially conserving energy for crucial domestic contests, a low-key draw is not beyond the realm of possibility.
