PSV bring in striker Stef Nijland for the injured Danny Koevermans when they play host to his former club FC Groningen at the Philips Stadium tonight, with a 7.45pm kick off. Nijland starts up front with Danko Lazovic and Balázs Dzsudzsák. Dirk Marcellis has recovered from injury and takes his place in the heart of defence.
Reimond Manco
Amrabat, who scored a first-half double in Young PSV's 4-0 win over Feyenoord on Thursday, starts on the bench. The 21-year-old is ready to return to match action as he has fully recovered from a groin injury that he sustained during the Eredivisie game against Roda JC at the end of October. Reimond Manco has also been called up to the squad. He was instrumental as a substitute last week, when he delivered an inch perfect cross on to the head of Danny Koevermans. PSV's leading scorer is ruled out of tonight's game due to a calf injury. PSV welcome back Dirk Marcellis, who forms a central defensive partnership with Jérémie Bréchet. Maza has to settle for a place on the bench. PSV coach Huub Stevens will be without Ibrahim Afellay and Jan Kromkamp. Stijn Wuytens returns in midfield, where he joins Edison Méndez and Timmy Simons.
PSV starting line up:
Isaksson, Salcido, Simons, Méndez, Lazovic, Bréchet, Culina, Nijland, Dzsudzsák, Marcellis and Wuytens.
Substitutes: Cássio Ramos, Maza, Amrabat, Pieters, Manco, Addo and Bakkal.
