‘It’s special if you can play at Wembley’

Daniel Schwaab is convinced that PSV can pull off a stunning upset on Wednesday. The experienced man marker is looking forward to playing a game at Wembley. “The Champions League is special anyway, but this stadium makes it even more so.”

Possession  
Schwaab saw Tottenham Hotspur score twice in the 2-2 draw in Eindhoven on matchday three. The English team enjoyed the bulk of possession (71%) and Schwaab thinks that they will again see most of the ball on Tuesday night. “I think you can get even get a good result when you do not enjoy most possession. We must stick to our tactical plan and our final pass on the counter attack can maybe make the difference.”

Pressure
It is a must-win game for Tottenham Hotspur and the German defender thinks that the home side will feel more pressure than PSV. “That could be to our advantage. If the home fans get impatient when their favourite team is not on top, we must be ready to grab our chance”, said Schwaab who got a first taste at Wembley during a training session on Monday night. “It’s special that you can play here. The Champions League is special anyway, but this stadium makes it even more so.”
