Defender Derrick Luckassen will miss PSV's opening game of the season against his former club AZ. The defender serves a one-match ban for bookings he received as an AZ player last season.
Last Thursday, Luckassen partnered Nicolas Isimat in the heart of the defence during the 1-0 defeat against NK Osijek. The Frenchman was also centre back, along with Daniel Schwaab in the 1-0 defeat in the first leg against the Croatian club. PSV have never suffered defeat when Schwaab was included in the starting line-up (17 wins and 6 draws). Ramon Pascal Lundqvist and Luuk Koopmans are not match fit and have not been called up to the match squad.
