The main topic at the customary pre-match press briefing at the PSV De Herdgang training ground was not surprisingly Olympique Lyonnais, the next opponent of PSV in the Champions League quarter finals. Hiddink will go to France to see Lyon in action on Saturday night.Hiddink watched Lyon on a previous occasion, when they met AS Monaco a few weeks ago. "They are a well-organized team that is hard to combat. They are a well-balanced side; when opportunity knocks, they take advantage. They are capable of killing off games just like that. They may not be the most appealing of opponents, but we are proud that we are still in the tournament at this stage. Lyon are dangerous outsiders in this tournament. They are creative and their quality players Juninho and Wiltord are lethal. A really big game might have given us a greater reputation and more glory, but I feel that my players will go for it again."Olympique Lyonnais will play a league game, away against Strasbourg on Saturday night. Guus Hiddink will watch that game and make the return trip to Amsterdam straight after the game. PSV will face Ajax in the Amsterdam ArenA on Sunday afternoon. "It's bound to be a great clash. I expect Ajax to be sharper and fresher than they were in the previous weeks."Hiddink will take off for the Chinese capital of Beijing on Monday in order to launch the official PSV Chinese website in China. He will return from Asia to Holland at the end of next week. Several players will be on national duty in various countries next week. The first league fixture after the Ajax clash is scheduled on 2 April, when PSV entertain FC Utrecht.
