A young PSV side ended their pre-season campaign in fine style with a comprehensive 4-0 victory over amateurs De Treffers in Groesbeek on Tuesday night. Danny Koevermans and his strike partner Danko Lazovic bagged a double. Arne Nilis and Yannick Rymenants made their PSV senior debuts.
Three Amrabat assists
PSV fielded teenagers Rens van Eijden and Eelco Horsten in defence, while Danny Koevermans played alongside strike partner Danko Lazovic up front, with Nordin Amrabat providing support. The latter was impressive in PSV's final pre-season friendly, producing three perfect crosses from the right in the first half. Amrabat first set up Koevermans, who opened the scoring after eighteen minutes and then turned provider for Lazovic, who headed home after 34 minutes. And Amrabat, again, played a major role in helping set up the third goal. Five minutes before the break, he found Lazovic and the Serb striker put the ball past keeper Erik Makaay, the brother of Feyenoord striker Roy.
Nilis debut
Huub Stevens made some changes at half time, introducing Jérémie Bréchet for Zonneveld, Funso Ojo for Horsten and Yannick Rymenants for Lazovic. Stijn Wuytens almost extended PSV's lead even further, but clipped a fine effort just wide of the post. Amrabat was a constant menace to the defence and Koevermans made it 4-0 on the hour mark. Stevens withdrew voor Méndez for Arne Nilis ten minutes from time. No goals were scored in the final thirty minutes.
First clean sheet
PSV kept their first clean of the pre-season campaign. They recorded draws with Sporting Lisbon, Newcastle United, Everton and Real Mallorca, after claiming emphatic wins over amateurs Gestel and Vaassen. PSV will now start preparations for Saturday's clash with Cup holders Feyenoord for the Johan Cruijff Schaal (the Dutch Super Cup), a week ahead of the first game of the new Eredivisie campaign. The players have the Wednesday off, but report back for training at De Herdgang on Thursday.
