PSV Eindhoven won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 4-2 Europa League defeat in their last game at the hands of Olympiacos.
In that game, PSV Eindhoven had 59% possession and 14 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. The only player to score for PSV Eindhoven was Eran Zahavi (14', 40'). At the other end, Olympiacos had 10 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. Andreas Bouchalakis (9'), Yann M'Vila (37'), Youssef El-Arabi (45') and Giorgos Masouras (83') scored for Olympiacos.
PSV Eindhoven have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, netting every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 matches.

Queensy Menig (16') and Thijs van Leeuwen (94') scored for FC Twente.
In 5 of the past 6 games featuring Vitesse, a notably low volume of goals have been hit between them and their opposition.

That pattern might not be carried forward into this next game, however.
