First-team regulars Timmy Simons, Phillip Cocu and Arouna Koné start on the bench, with Manuel da Costa, Mika Väyrynen and Diego Tardelli deputizing for them. Alcides fills in at right back for Jan Kromkamp who is sidelined due to an injury. Alex will be wearing the captain’s armband tonight. Koeman has made most changes to his midfield, with Cocu and Simons starting on the bench. Michael Reiziger and Patrick Kluivert are also ruled out of tonight’s cup tie.

Ernie Brandts, a former PSV player as well as assistant coach, is head coach of NAC Breda. <u>PSV starting line-up:</u> Gomes, Alcides, Da Costa, Alex, Salcido, Väyrynen, Afellay, Mendez, Culina, Farfán and Tardelli.
