The match between the Yellows and the Red and Whites takes place this weekend

This Saturday at 7pm CEST, the Submarine will face PSV Eindhoven at the Philips Stadion (Netherlands). The Dutch side, who are the second pre-season opponent of Villarreal CF, will face the Yellows for the first time.

Founded in 1913, PSV are a historic side in European football, having won the Dutch league 24 times, the Dutch cup nine times, the Dutch Super Cup 11 times, the UEFA Champions League in 1987/88 and a UEFA Cup in 1977/78. It will also be Ruud van Nistelrooy’s side’s second pre-season match, who finished second in their league last season, qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.

They have talent in their current squad, with players such as Cody Gakpo and Ibrahim Sangaré, and PSV are traditionally a team that brings through young talent, with world-class players such as Ruud Gullit, Ronaldo Nazario and Arjen Robben coming through their ranks.
