PSV will meet AC Milan in Moscow, at 18:30 local time, in their opening game of the Russian Railways Cup. Ibrahim Afellay and Ismail Aissati will start in midfield and Carlos Salcido partners Eric Addo at the heart of defence.

Otman Bakkal joins Danko Lazovic as strike partner up front, supported by Edison Mendez. AC Milan will not field their strongest team, as Ronaldo and Maldini are absent, but they will most likely be able to put in a fine performance, fielding the likes of, among other players, Dida, Pirlo, Clarence Seedorf and Cafu. PSV and AC Milan last met in October 2005, during the UEFA Champions League group stage. The two teams drew 0-0 in Italy, but Jefferson Farfán made sure of a 1-0 win in Eindhoven. The Lokomotiv Central Stadium, which can accommodate 28, 000 people, is almost filled to capacity. PSV TV Online will present extensive coverage of the game.

PSV starting line-up:
Gomes, Kromkamp, Addo, Salcido, Zonneveld, Simons, Afellay, Aissati, Mendez, Bakkal, Lazovic.
Substitutes: Roorda, Alcides, Da Costa, Fehér, De Jong, Zeefuik, Fagner, Jonathan, Van der Leegte and Culina.
