lammers pdvPSV went into the tie bottom of the group, and with Wolfsburg beating CSKA Moscow in the group’s earlier tie, the Dutch side knew a win was needed for a realistic chance to qualify for the next round.

After an impressive fifteen minutes PSV took the lead through Albert Gudmundsson. Ten minutes later it was 2-0 as Ramon Pascal Lundqvist sent a header past Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

Geert Brusselers side were in complete control and before the break Dirk Ebels made it 3-0 after great work by Gudmundsson.
