PSV Eindhoven will host PAOK in a club friendly at the Philips Stadion on Wednesday.

The home side come into the game on the back of a goalless draw with German side VfL Osnabruck in another friendly fixture on Saturday.

PAOK picked up a convincing 3-1 win over fellow Greek side Volos a day earlier. Vasilios Gordeziani, Andersen Esiti and Ioannis Michailidis all got on the scoresheet to help the White Blacks complete a comeback victory on home turf.

PSV will use this game as their final preparatory fixture before kickstarting the new campaign in a UEFA Champions League qualifier with Galatasaray next week.

PAOK have three more friendlies lined up in July before taking part in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa Conference League at the start of August.

PSV vs PAOK Prediction

A win for PSV will put them in a confident mood heading into their important clash with Galatasaray and Roger Schmidt's side are likely to go all out for victory. Home advantage could also be a factor, although PAOK have enough quality players to take advantage if given the opportunity.

Both sides will play on the front foot in a friendly encounter where there is little on the line. However, we are predicting a victory for PSV, with goals to be scored at both ends.

Prediction: PSV 3-2 PAOK
