PSV arrived in Moscow on Sunday evening at 18:30 local time, where the temperature had dropped to just below zero. After a considerable delay at the airport, the squad drove to town at about half past eight to put up at the players' hotel.

After the Transavia Boeing 737-800 had landed at Sheremetievo Airport, the passengers' patience was tested. It took about two hours to complete all customs formalities and collect all luggage from the conveyor belt, after which a set of chartered buses drove to several hotels in the centre of Moscow. A select company of sponsors and business partners have made the trip to Russia, along with some former PSV chairmen. PSV have invited Harry van Raaij and his successor Rob Westerhof to make the trip to Moscow, while Jacques Ruts and Bill Maeyer were guests of honour in Istanbul earlier this month.

Another plane with PSV business partners and media representatives had taken off for Moscow at Amsterdam Airport on Sunday morning. The Eindhoven delegation will be cordially welcomed at 22:00, while PSV inspect the pitch of the Lokomotiv Stadium during a training session on Monday night. PSV were also in Moscow in August, when they won Russian Railways Cup, after collecting victories against AC Milan en Real Madrid. The weather conditions in Moscow are not perfect: the temperature has dropped to just below zero, the streets are covered by thick layers of snow and at times there is a slight sleet. The next few days the temperature is expected to drop a few degrees.
