PSV Eindhoven left it late but a 90th minute goal from Jorrit Hendrix saw them see off a wasteful Vitesse 1-0 in Arnhem.

hendriThe visitors dominated the early minutes in Arnhem with Jurgen Locadia and Gaston Pereiro sending shots off target while Davy Propper smashed a shot against the side of the post.

However Vitesse grew into the game and by the half time whistle they were unlucky not to be ahead with Jeroen Zoet forced to deny Valeri Qazaishvili and Denys Oliinyk with fingertip saves, while Dominik Solanke also saw a shot deflect just past the post.

After the break it was Vitesse who looked more likely to snatch all three points with Milot Rashica somehow firing wide from six yards and Solanke sending a point blank header wide.

PSV only threatened Eloy Room in the Vitesse goal once in the second half through a Hector Moreno header which the goalkeeper brilliantly kept out. However in the 90th minute Luuk de Jong brilliantly found Jorrit Hendrix in the box and the midfielder calmly slotted into the bottom corner to snatch all three points.

The three points keeps PSV within touching distance of the top two and is a perfect warm-up for the crucial tie with CSKA Moscow on Tuesday. Peter Bosz, however, will be wondering how his side squandered so many chances.
