Veerman replaces injured Gakpo against Fortuna Sittard

PSV look to keep up the title race when they host Fortuna Sittard in round 27 of the Eredivisie campaign. Head coach Roger Schmidt has made one change to his starting XI. Joey Veerman replaces Cody Gakpo, who limped off the pitch following a harsh challenge during PSV’s 4-0 win over FC Copenhagen.

In-form Zahavi
Eran Zahavi scored twice in Denmark on Thursday and the in-form striker has now netted six goals in his last five games. Mario Götze and Noni Maduke, who were also on target against the Danish side, have both been called up to the match squad. Götze is handed a start, while Madueke is on the bench. The man in the middle in the Philips Stadion is Allard Lindhout. Kick-off is at 16.45.

PSV line-up
Drommel; Mauro JR, Teze, Boscagli, Max; Sangaré, Gutiérrez, Götze; Veerman, Doan, Zahavi.

Substitutes
Obispo, Van Ginkel, Vinícius, Madueke, Bruma, Romero, Vertessen, Ledezma, Mvogo, Delanghe.
