Ihattaren returns to starting line-up

Sparta Rotterdam take on PSV in round twelve of the 2019/20 Eredivisie campaign. PSV head coach Mark van Bommel sticks with his front three but makes one change in midfield as 17-year-old midfielder Mohamed Ihattaren returns from injury.

Malen misses the game
Donyell Malen is not fit enough to face Sparta Rotterdam, currently lying tenth in the Eredivisie. Steven Bergwijn also misses the game through injury, while Nick Viergever, Jorrit Hendrix and Ryan Thomas are suspended.

Last season’s corresponding encounter ended in a 2-1 win for PSV. Kenny Dougall gave the hosts the lead but Steven Bergwijn struck twice to secure a victory.

Referee Bas Nijhuis has been chosen to officiate tonight’s game. Kick-off is at 19.45.
