For PSV fans: Ajax/Feyenoord v German club - who would you support?

I have a question for PSV Eindhoven fans which I am curious about.

If Ajax Amsterdam or Feyenoord play a German club side (e.g. Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund etc) in Europe (e.g. UEFA Champions League or Europa League), who would you support?

Would you support Ajax or Feyenoord because they are competing against a team from Germany (who are Netherlands’ archrivals)?

Or would you support the German club because Ajax & Feyenoord are your main rivals at home?

Look forward to reading your replies.

In case of Ajax the majority will support the Germans, in case of Feyenoord they will support Feyenoord.

More interesting is, why do you want to know?

Well nowadays with the coefficients i would support Ajax or Feyenoord as it would make it easier for PSV to do well in Europe in the years to come.

Not taking this into account however, i would support the German teams.

Im with Knoert, why do you want to know though? And is your question directly aimed at PSV fans because there is only one on here.

Thanks for your posts. It was aimed at PSV fans but other fans are also welcome to post.

Anyway, the I want to know is that I'm simply curious as to how deep Dutch club rivalries go. At international level, the Netherlands' biggest rivalry is with Germany. So I was wondering if that rivalry with the Germans also apply at club level. Would Dutch fans support their club's major rivals if those rival clubs play clubs from the Netherlands' biggest international rival (i.e.Germany)? In PSV's case, their biggest rivals are Ajax & Feyenoord....so I was wondering who PSV fans would support if those 2 clubs play club teams from Germany?
Is the rivalry with Ajax & Feyenoord so deep that PSV fans would rather support clubs from their country's biggest rival?
Or is the international rivalry with the Germans so deep
that PSV fans would rather support Ajax or Feyenoord over a German club side?

I post the same question in the Ajax & Feyenoord sections.
I don't mean to stir any trouble....I'm really curious,that's all.

We don't have any international rival. The whole Germany rival thing is just ridiculous.

I wish all the worst to Ajax I even supported Gremio and Juve back in the days.

Yeah, I highly doubt the international rivalry with Germany is as passionate nowadays as it was in say the 70's. The younger generation doesn't have any problem with Germans and although it's still a special match and both teams obviously want to win, there's nothing malicious or terribly heated about it.

Both countries love each other so much that they just swapped styles, Germany now with total football and Holland with result football

The Germans are cool, I have no problem with them. We should hijack the euro and run away together.
