tyton aThe home side went into the match needing a win to get their campaign back on track, and under stand in coach Zoran Mamić they put pressure on PSV from the start.

Ivo Pinto fired over for the hosts, while El Arbi Hilal was twice denied by PSV keeper Przemysław Tytoń, with the second save coming with Dinamo four on two in the box.

PSV hardly got a sniff of goal in the first half, as they failed to get into their usual passing game, with Dinamo keeping Memphis Depay quiet.

Dinamo Zagreb were unlucky not to take the lead in the second half, when Duje Čop’s goal-bound shot was stopped by his own teammate.

At the other end, Memphis Depay fired a dangerous free-kick just over, before Ola Toivonen saw a header brilliantly saved by Oliver Zelenika.

In the final moments, Dinamo pressured the PSV back four, but Phillip Cocu’s side held on for what could prove to be a valuable point.

PSV stay second in the group, and five points behind Ludogorets, who kept up their 100% record by beating Chornomorets 1-0.
