How PSV Eindhoven returned to the top of the Eredivisie

Metinho gave the visitors the lead, after which an own goal by Saïd Bakari and a second goal via Johan Bakayoko turned the match in the home team’s favor.

When Boscagli put the ball into his own goal it was 2-2 and there were some nerves in Eindhoven, but his brilliant volley from a free kick on the right side of the field made up for the mistake before Jordan Teze added a fourth goal. .

PSV have been buoyed by a significant influence from the United States men’s national team, with Ricardo Pepi, Sergiño Dest and Malik Tillman all playing a part in the triumphant season.
