If PSV Eindhoven beat Benfica in the play-offs, the club will become the second Dutch participant in the Champions League group stage. The club could play the away game against Midtjylland at the age of 31 after winning 3-0 at home. In Denmark, 5 million euros have already been secured, in addition to the loser of the play-off matches.

Benfica beat Spartak Moscow 2-0 twice. Thus, PSV Eindhoven is definitely not the favourite, but coach Roger Schmidt is full of good courage: “We kept zero three times in a row in the top game, which is a good sign.” He stated on SBS6 that his team could go even higher against Midtjylland: “We created enough chances, but weren’t competent enough. Fortunately, we still scored in injury time, in my opinion we deserved it.”

If PSV remain in the Champions League, at least 35 million euros will be ready. The club can use this to complete a number of transfers. In addition to the two talented youngsters Fode Fofana and Jeremy Antunes, coach Schmidt and director of football affairs John de Jong want to sign other players for several years.
