PSV Eindhoven will face Cambuur on Saturday
The visitors come into the game fresh off winning their first KNVB Beker title in a decade last weekend. Two quickfire goals at the start of the second half saw them overturn a halftime deficit to claim a 2-1 comeback victory over Ajax in the final.
Prior to that, they fell to a 2-1 defeat to Leicester City on home turf that saw them knocked out of the UEFA Europa Conference League.
Cambuur suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat away to Vitesse in league action a fortnight ago. Lois Openda’s 42nd-minute goal proved to be the difference between the two sides.
The defeat left the Leeuwarden outfit in 12th spot, having garnered 33 points from 29 matches. PSV remain in second place and are four points behind table-toppers Ajax.
Cambuur vs PSV Head-to-Head
