A rather brilliant first leg performance by a very young and talented PSV was not rewarded with a victory, instead the young team came away with what many would call a creditable draw against an AC Milan team that, at times, looks very threatening going forward, but at other times looked anemic. It is hard to gauge how good or bad teams are this time of the season, but Milan look disjointed and out of synch in their opening Serie A game. While Balotelli and ElSharawaay are very talented attackers, the midfield behind them lacks creativity and there is no real speed in the team. Abate , Mexes and Zapata will marshall the defence and the team is full of experience and wont be easily beaten, but at the moment I think Ac Milan fans will not be overly confident of getting a result tomorrow night.
PSV manager Phillip Cocu was a terrific footballer in his day and his team are playing terrific free flowing attack-minded football at the moment. The addition of Ji Sung Park, the former Manchester United midfielder, provides lots of experience to a youthful and exciting squad of players. There is some real talent running through this PSV side with Bakkali, Wijnaldum, Depy and Maher. Can the youth prevail in one of the biggest games of their careers, in a hostile atsomphere in one of the cauldrons of world football against one of the giants of the european game? Well, this is why we watch football isnt it? To see games like this!

I'm not going to beat around the bush here, I think PSV have a terrific chance of turning Ac Milan over if they do not let the occasion get to them. Milan are a good side, but definitely beatable and the pace of PSV can cause Ac Milan some real problems on the counter attack. On the betting front, though, I'm going to take both teams to score and try to cash an early winner before throwing a little something on PSV to win outright. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
