The most recent fixture between the sides was a 3-1 friendly win for PSV in 2018.

PSV Eindhoven Form


PSV earned their spot in Champions League qualifying after finishing runners-up to Ajax in the Eredivisie last season.

Roger Schmidt's side were no match for their traditional rivals, ending the campaign 16 points adrift of Ajax after a 1-1 draw at Utrecht on the final day of the season.

PSV lost just one of their last 13 matches of the season in all competitions.

They reached the last 16 of the Europa League last season before losing 5-4 on aggregate against Olympiakos.

PSV have warmed up for the season with four friendlies. They beat RWDM 6-2, Delbrucker 10-1 and PAOK 1-0 as well as drawing 0-0 with Osnabruck.

PSV Eindhoven Team News


PSV have been busy in the transfer market, signing goalkeeper Joël Drommel from Twente and centre-back André Ramalho from Red Bull Salzburg.

Goalkeeper Lars Unnerstall, centre-back Timo Baumgartl and forward Joël Piroe have left the club, while on loan defender Adrian Fein has returned to Bayern Munich.

Denzel Dumfries and Donyell Malen will not be available for PSV after their Euro 2020 exploits.

Friendly wins over Dinamo Bucharest 2-1 and Kasimpasa 4-2 have been Galatasaray's preparation for the new season.
