First-half chances

Khalid Sinouh, Jetro Willems, Jürgen Locadia and Rabiu Ibrahim made their first starts for PSV in a competitive match, in front of a 30,000 crowd. PSV obviously enjoyed the bulk of possession, but FC Lisse goalkeeper Mark de Vries kept his side in the game in the first half with a series of saves to deny Jetro Willems and Kevin Strootman. The FC Lisse goalkeeper kept a clean sheet in the first period after Jürgen Locadia could only direct his header into the side-netting.

Second-half goals from Manolev, Labyad and Mertens

PSV head coach Fred Rutten made one half-time substitution, bringing on Zakaria Labyad for Wijnaldum. Labyad soon made his mark. First he set up the opening goal for Manolev and then he doubled PSV´s advantage himself, cutting into the box before slotting home his third KNVB Cup goal of the season. Mertens, who had replaced Ibrahim, made it three. The Belgian international intercepted a poor pass, rounded the keeper and tapped home: 3-0. Young Austrian Marcel Ritzmaier came on for Strootman, with fifteen minutes remaining. He all but crowned his debut for PSV with a goal when he hit the crossbar seconds after coming on. FC Lisse have a night to remember, while PSV will start preparing for Saturday’s massive game at FC Twente.
