Ahead of the match Peter Bosz is calling on his players to approach the encounter with confidence while reminding them they have a chance against the reigning champions.

Bosz said, “Our graph against PSV has not been encouraging in the last two seasons, having lost in the last three league matches, I say that is a jinx we need to look beyond,:”

“We come to the match on the back of a morale boosting derby win against NEC last week. Now we have a chance to do something special,” explained Bosz whose side is yet to beat any of the top three sides this season.

They have already lost to Ajax and Fayenoord, on paper it appears the script will be in favour of PSV.

“Football is unpredictable, up to the last minute I know and my players share the same sentiments that we have a chance. Our undoing is trying to find balance between attack and defense  with more emphasis needed in the latter,” he concluded.
