Ahead of the Champions League return leg against Olympique Lyon, PSV trained for the last time on Dutch soil on Monday morning, One day before the squad leaves for France, some players are doubtful. DoubtsApart from Michael Lamey (calf) and Michael Reiziger (hand), the PSV technical staff are faced with another doubt. Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink sustained a knee problem during training Michael Ball is ruled out anyway, as the Englishman is not eligible for the Champions League. "We cannot make a match plan until Wednesday”, told Guus Hiddink reporters after the Monday morning training session. "We can only make our starting line-up just before the game. Some players are doubtful and we will have to wait and see how they will be doing tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. Jan Vennegoor has strained his knee; we hope it will not be too bad” announced Hiddink. "Not impossible"The PSV head coach emphasized how tough the challenge is that PSV will face in Lyon. "They are in the driving seat, as they have scored a vital away goal. But we never use the phrase 'impossible'. Olympique Lyon are so much focused on reaching the finals, as they have not yet shaken off feelings of frustration for failing to do so last season. They want to establish themselves among the European elite and are very anxious to be recognized and appreciated. If we were to progress, it would be a shock result. But things are never impossible. We will do our best to pull off a stunning result."
