In the first leg of their 2021 UEFA Champions League qualifying match against Galatasaray, PSV Eindhoven appeared to be in mid-season form. The Dutch side took their Turkish counterparts to task and opened up a 5-1 lead on aggregate compliments of an Eran Zahavi hat trick and a Mario Gotze brace. On Wednesday, it's Galatasaray's turn to host at Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadium in Istanbul. You can stream the action on Paramount+.

Champions League picks for Galatasaray vs. PSV Eindhoven
Before you tune in to Wednesday's Champions League qualifier, you need to see the Champions League picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated nearly $19,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Wednesday, Green is backing PSV to win (draw no bet) at -137 odds. Despite talented young players like Donyell Malen and Denzel Dumfries appearing to be on their way out, PSV looked extraordinarily capable going forward in the first leg last week.
PSV completed 623 passes (86 percent pass accuracy) and attempted 16 shots, with eight going on target. Meanwhile, Galatasaray only managed 36 percent possession and only got one of their six shots on target. That shot did result in a goal by Emre Kilinc, but after a disappointing runner-up finish in Turkish Super Lig last year, Green is expecting Galatasaray to continue looking a little disjointed while it awaits reinforcements.
"(Galatasaray) will have to take risks and attack in this game as it bids to turn around the heavy deficit, and it could get on the score sheet once more," Green told SportsLine. "However, that will leave gaps in defense, and PSV has the pace and ingenuity to capitalize."
