Hey, as you can see I'm a PSV fan. I'm really looking forward to this match!.
Well, some info about PSV..
The coach is Ronald Koeman, he's not very populair in Eindhoven but he proved to be a good coach in the CL. His style of football last season was very defensive. But this season he wants to take risks and plays with 4 defenders, 1 defensive midfielder, 2 or 3 attacking midfielders and 2 or 3 attackers. But he already said he will play more defensive in the CL.
Our best players are:
Afellay: A young talent from the youth setup of PSV. His acceleration with the ball is unbelievable, his dribbling is fantastic, his shot is great, his passing is good... But he is still injury prone and he's dribbling too often.. But he's a very dangerous player. He also won the talent of the year award in the dutch league last season, above players as Ryan Babel.
Gomes: A great goalkeeper, in the CL he's always fantastic!
Simons: He's our defensive midfielder and our captain. Very important for the balance in the team.
Farfan: Our best attacker, but he failed to make impression in the CL last season. Strong, fantastic freekick and scores quite easy.
Salcido: Our Mexican leader in the defense, our only good defender..
Our attack is very strong this year. But Farfan is the only player who already played in the CL. Koevermans and Lazovic have never played in the CL before.
Our midfield is great, with players like Aisatti (often named as biggest dutch talent), Afellay (won talent of the year award), Simons (captain of the belgian team), Bakkal (very smart midfielder, he reminds me to V. Bommel in his early days. We also have Mendez (Ecuadorian international)
Our defense isn't very strong, although we haven't conceed a goal in the dutch league yet. Zonneveld our leftback will be suspended against CSKA and Inter. We've some talents as Rajkovic (Serbia U21 player, loaned from Chelsea) and Da Costa (one of the biggest Portugees defensive talents).
And we have Salcido who's a great player. But overal our defensive isn't very strong.
