PSV booked a place in the Europa League group stages with an emphatic 4-0 win over Apollon Limassol on Thursday evening. “We scored seven goals in two games and kept two clean sheets. That’s a good result in a European game”, said PSV head coach Mark van Bommel.
A mature performance
PSV scored four goals and kept a fourth clean sheet in a row. Van Bommel is satisfied with the progress his young side are making. “We put in a mature performance, but need to be patient. We have a young squad and we are perhaps not consistent enough. You need to be disciplined in defence and focus on your job so that quality will eventually make the difference. Once we had made the breakthrough, we scored some more goals in quick succession.”
PSV will fly back to Eindhoven on Friday morning and start preparing for Sunday’s Eredivisie game away from home against RKC Waalwijk.
