PSV coach Huub sStevens has been forced to make two changes from the team that beat Heracles Almelo 4-0 last weekend and sufefred a narrow 2-1 defeat against Atlético Madrid on Wednesday. Jason Culina replaces Erik Pieters who is ill and Stef Nijland deputizes for the injured Ibrahim Afellay, when PSV take on sc Heerenveen at the Abe Lenstra Stadium tonight.
Dirk Marcellis
Defender Dirk Marcellis has returned to full fitness, but starts on the bench. The same goed for Reimond Manco, who was unable to join the squad in Madrid as he was away on international duty with Young Peru. If PSV record a win they will leapfrog FC Groningen, who slipped to a 2-0 defeat against leaders AZ on Friday night. If sc Heerenveen manage to grab all three points, they will move above PSV in the table. If the two team settle for a draw, PSV will maintian their two-point lead over sc Heern passeren op de ranglijst en bij een gelijkspel blijft het verschil twee punten in het voordeel van de Eindhovenaren. De wedstrijd begint om 20.45 uur en is live te zien op Eredivisie Live én Discovery Channel, via het open net.
Opstelling PSV:
Isaksson, Salcido, Maza, Simons, Méndez, Lazovic, Koevermans, Bréchet, Culina, Nijland en Dzsudzsák.
Wissels: Cássio Ramos, Zonneveld, Manco, Addo, Marcellis, Bakkal en Wuytens.
