PSV should be neither complacent nor overconfident, but they have an opportunity to make history tonight. Never before did a Dutch club qualify for the Champions League knockout phase after four group stage games.Even Ajax had not made sure of qualifying for the next phase in the 1995-1996 campaign, although they had already amassed ten points from four games. If PSV beat Galatasaray and Liverpool and Girondins Bordeaux draw tonight, Ronald Koeman’s will have reached the next round. PSV will also be assured a place in the last 16 if they draw and Liverpool win. If PSV book their place in the final sixteen, they will be the ninth Dutch team to have accomplished that feat. Never before did a Dutch club reach the knockout stages after four group games. Dutch teams reached the next phase four times after five group games and the celebrations also started four times after the final group stage game.PSV Eindhoven can qualify for the UEFA Champions League knockout phase for the third season in a row.
