'A tough game, we were sloppy at times and the draw is a correct result' were the main conclusions drawn by PSV head coach Ronald Koeman, after his team had been held to a 0-0 draw by Fenerbahçe. 'The chances to qualify are no longer in our own hands. It will be thrilling until the last round of matches', said Koeman, when he reviewed the game at the post-match press conference.

'I thought we had our moments tonight but we were also very sloppy at times. We started brightly and Lazovic soon got a great opportunity to open the scoring. I hoped we would be able to break down their defence when we threw everything forward after they had been reduced to ten men. We created some chances and Koevermans did well to connect with one of the few sharp crosses. We had a tough match tonight that was interrupted by a lot of fouls, so we could not play the high tempo game we had in mind. In these European matches, the last pass has to be good. We lacked creativity in attack and were sloppy with our passes on occasion. Fenerbahçe, with two physically strong centre backs, defended really well. I suppose the draw is a correct result.'

Zico thought his team had played very well. 'We defended well and created chances as well, but failed to score a goal. We were well-organized and didn't concede any space. PSV were not dangerous down the wings. We are happy with a point and hope to continue to produce more of the same in the remaining group stage matches', said the Brazilian coach, who did not wish to dispute with the referee. 'As to the red card shown to Deivid, I respect the decision of the referee. His decision to send Deivid off may have been influenced by the crowd, but I must admit I couldn't see the incident well enough.' Zico could not say much about the injury that playmaker Alex had sustained. 'The exact nature of the injury will be revealed tomorrow.'
