PSV Eindhoven warmed up for their Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid with a simple 2-0 win over Heracles.

The Heracles keeper then kept the away side in the game with four good saves to deny both Luuk de Jong and Marco van Ginkel. However, before the break theĀ goalkeeper was finally beaten againĀ as Ramon Zomer was punished for bringing down Jeffrey Bruma and Gaston Pereiro slotted in the resulting penalty.

In the second half PSV continued to create chances but Castro was equal to a Pereiro header, while Luciano Narsingh clipped the ball wide after a mazy run into the box. At the other end Heracles were unable to test Jeroen Zoet and PSV comfortably held on for the win.

PSV now sit four points ahead of Ajax, who host Excelsior on Sunday while Heracles drop to 4th.
