Our midfield couldn't get into the game first half, we lost just about every second ball, couldn't keep the ball for long periods. PSV were always too outnumbered in Utrecht's half, it changed in second half, Cocu subbed Bergwijn off for Schwaab, switching to a 3-5-2. This helped PSV regain possession, in first half every ball forward from Utrecht found its way to a Utrecht player, second half the extra CB helped PSV intercept many forward passes to their forwards.
Davy Propper brought PSV back in the game with a strike from 20 odd yards, didn't watch the replays but initial thought was their keeper could have saved that, maybe it was closer to the corner than I thought, maybe there was a bounce before he was able to get a touch.
Guardado got too excited to finish a chance after a break from a corner, got space for the shot in Utrecht's box but shot straight at keeper.
Pereiro makes it 1-2 from a free-kick, a header to a Willem Janssen from a Utrecht defender, was accidentally hand balled by Willem Janseen, sloppy mistake that gets punished harshly from a Utrecht point of view IMO. Well finished free kick though.
Rubio Rubin had a good chance to equalise, a chance where you have time for one touch (to shoot) but he missed the target. Another mishit (from the looks of it) shot from Rubin from just outside the box goes just wide too.
In stoppage time Utrecht get a corner, their keeper went up for it, didn't do a Martin Hanssen on it though, but while Utrecht had their whole team up Haller found himself behind PSV's defense, couldn't hit the bouncing ball cleanly to shoot, Zoet was able to save thankfully.
Utrecht 1-2 PSV
A draw wouldn't have been unfair because of how much better Utrecht were in first half, will take three points though
