conclusion after the hard January month is that PSV has lost eight points in six league games and the arrears of the Eindhovenaren on list leader Ajax is no less than seven points. And this while the selection in advance was considered able to displace the Amsterdammers mainly on the basis of fitness from the first place.
“ AZ at home was not enough and neither was this”, bothered captain Denzel Dumfries Sunday after the defeat against Feyenoord. In the duel with Ajax, a lead of 2-0 eventually led to a tie.
“ It‘s a tough season,” emphasises Dumfries once again. And it is precisely that he clings to, because that also applies to Ajax with the many duels that follow each other in a short period of time.
‘Not yet decided‘
“ End of title race? No, I don’t want to say that this way,” says the rightback with conviction, knowing that the rival from Amsterdam still awaits a number of tough matches in February. “The tax also plays a role. It is far from decided.”
Watch the reaction of PSV-trainer Roger Schmidt below.
Ajax and PSV meet twice this month, for both the competition and the cup. And also the European season continues for both clubs.
PSV trainer Roger Schmidt learns from the way in which Feyenoord played the game with a number of sharp counters. “We played not bad,” he judges the game of his own team. “Yet we gave them three, maybe four, moments to score. We need to use this race to take another step forward with the team.”
Feyenoord mercilessly punished almost every mistake of PSV, while for the most part the game was on the right side of Rotterdam. Schmidt: “We still had the moments to make it another match, but we didn‘t score. Today we made too many mistakes.”
In Studio Voetbal the situation of PSV was examined Sunday evening. Pierre van Hooijdonk lacks firmness at PSV. “They rarely play with the same team”, says Van Hooijdonk. “What is the fixed PSV? I don’t know.” Look at the video below.
