An effective PSV has successfully completed the away match at RKC. The team of trainer Roger Schmidt triumphed with 4-1 in Waalwijk. As a result of the victory, PSV is leading the Eredivisie next to Ajax.
The Eindhovenaren soon sat on roses in Waalwijk. RKC still hit the bar in the 10th minute, but a minute later the ball was between the poles via Cody Gakpo on the other side: 0-1.
Three minutes later Mo Ihattaren zch passed with a hit just like last week.
His low 20 meter slider fell pardoes behind the unconvincing goalkeeper Kostas Lamprou: 0-2.
RKC showed excellent field game and had more goal attempts than PSV at rest. However, the Eindhovenaren were much more effective. RKC was pretty short of itself in the first 45 minutes. Schmidt still got yellow after comments on the leadership.
After the tea break, the first chance was one for PSV. Rosario found Denzel Dumfries at the second pole, who was handsome, but Lamprou kept his target clean this time. A minute later Lamprou grabbed a shot by Mario Götze. Schmidt had sent his crew a lot sharper from the rest, so on the eye.
In the 56th minute, the ball came unhappily on Jordan Tezes hand, but arbitrator Blom didnt see a penalty kick in it. No chance for RKC to make the connection hit so. After this decision, the belief in a good result seemed to be completely removed from the Waalwijkers.
In the 60th minute Schmidt chose again to take two of his top players off. Gakpo and Donyell Malen were exchanged for Joel Piroe and Noni Madueke.
Penalty and honorary reffer
A clever run by Dumfries gave PSV a penalty after intervention by Melle Meulensteen. The captain himself stood behind the ball: 0-3.
Finn Stokkers took care of the honorary reffer in the 87th minute with a delicious pedi. The goal was earned for Grims team.
In the 94th minute, substitute Madueke took care of a 1-4 final score with a lucky ball. PSV is due to the victory at the same level with Ajax, which will play on Sunday at ADO Den Haag.
PSV captain Dumfries: we learned from previous duels
PSV has learned from previous away matches. Captain Dumfries said that Saturday after victory. “We kill the match,” said Dumfries about the early goals of Cody Gakpo and Mohamed Ihattaren.
The previous duels played PSV with FC Twente (1-1) and sc Heerenveen (2-2) a head start. Dumfries: “Compared to many other competitions, we did well. We were smart with the opportunities we were given. Then it looks business and easy, but it wasnt.”
Trainer Schmidt was also satisfied. “We played cleverly,” said the German. “That ensures satisfaction. I saw it didnt go by itself. We had problems with the tactics of RKC for rest, which allowed them to move towards our sixteen meter area. In the end, we took advantage of a mistake and made a total of four good goals.”
