PSV's flight from Eindhoven Airport this morning eventually left two-and-a-hours late. The hold-up was caused when the plane did not take off due to mechanical problems. The PSV party had to wait for a second aircraft and arrived at John Lennon Airport in Liverpool two-and-half-hours later than planned.
Fourth match in two years
Liverpool and PSV had never met until the 2006/07 campaign, when they faced each other four times. In the group stage Ronald Koeman's team played out a goalless draw in Eindhoven on Matchday 1 before Liverpool won the return match 2-0 on Matchday 5. PSV progressed to the quarter finals after having eliminated Arsenal from the competition. Rafa Benítez's team then earned a comprehensive 4-0 aggregate victory over PSV in the quarter-finals. They recorded a 3-0 win at the Philips Stadium in the first leg and claimed a 1-0 victory in the return leg at Anfield. PSV also made a trip to Liverpool in summer, when they met Everton in a pre-season friendly. Nordin Amrabat opened the scoring for PSV, but the hosts canceled out the deficit in the closing stages. All in all, PSV are in Liverpool for the fourth time and will play a competitive match at Anfield for the third time.
Press conference and training
The plane with the PSV party, including players, coaching staff, officials, members of the board, sponsors and media representatives, landed at John Lennon Airport at 2pm. PSV coach Huub Stevens will preview Wednesday's game at a press conference tonight at 6pm, after which the players will have a one-hour training session on the pitch at Anfield.
