An uninspired PSV Eindhoven dropped points once again on Saturday as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Roda JC in Kerkrade.

psv-roddsThe home side managed to contain PSV’s lifeless attack in the first half with Benjamin van Leer only having to make one save from Luuk de Jong, who also saw a goal wrongly ruled out for offside. At the other end, Abdul Ajagun had a great chance to put the hosts in front but his shot from close range was blocked by Santiago Arias.

PSV dominated possession in the second half, but they struggled to break through the Roda JC defensive wall. On 69 minutes Siem de Jong got their best chance, but van Leer and three defenders on the line stopped the midfielder from breaking the deadlock.

Luciano Narsingh and Steven Bergwijn came off the bench towards the end but they could not provide any spark to the PSV attack and in injury time Roda JC passed up a great opportunity to win all three points through Mitchell Paulissen.

Roda JC have now drawn their last six games in a row and they move a point ahead of bottom placed Go Ahead Eagles, while PSV stay third and six points off Feyenoord and Ajax.
