PSV’s first tie will be at home to Atletico Madrid on the 13th of September, before a trip to Russia to face Rostov two weeks later. The group will end with a home tie against Rostov. On the 1st of November, the Philips stadion plays hosts to Bayern Munich, with Arjen Robben returning to the club where he spent two years.
