Guus Hiddink was a happy man at the post-match press conference on Saturday night. " No injuries, three points and three fine goals" , was his main conclusion. "But no matter whether we wanted it or not, Tuesday night' s crucial game was already at the back of our minds." More possession"We knew PSV would start in aggressive fashion in order to score an early opening goal", started NAC Breda head coach Ton Lokhoff his analysis of the game. "They were helped when the referee lightly awarded them a penalty. Van Zwam stopped the spot kick, but we were made to work hard in the first period. We knew that we would get our chances, if they could not break the deadlock. And that’s what I told my players at half time. But PSV had more possession of the ball in the second half and when we were dispossessed, they immediately struck. We did not intend to let them walk all over us and moved men forward. However, when Farfán scored a beauty, we knew it was all over. PSV certainly deserved to win, but it’s a shame they made it even three", Lokhoff. Hand brake"Tuesday night's crucial game was subconsciously at the back of our minds", commented Hiddink on the game. "We created chances in the first forty-five minutes, but we were not clinical in our finishing. The pace of our game was too low. It looked like we would never release the handbrake. We could and should have been 1-0 on top at half time at least. I told my players to pile up the pressure and up a gear, because then they were bound to score goals anyway. That’s exactly what we did. I am delighted all three strikers found the net tonight. And on top of that Robert delivered a wonderful assist. We were quicker and sharper after the break. We came out of the game unscathed. It’s great to see that everybody involved in PSV has realized that we should not drop precious points ahead of a massive European tie. No injuries, three points and three fine goals. That feels good."
