In an empty Philips Stadium, PSV has done good business in group B of the Europa League. In a boring game, Sturm Graz was beaten 2-0. As a result, PSV still has everything in their own hands to reach the knockout phase of the Europa League.
In an unspectacular first half, it was PSV that had the ball. However, that did not yield many opportunities, except for a header by Carlos Vinícius in the initial phase.
A nice combination between Bruma with both Mario Götze and Vinicius seemed to be heading for a goal. But face to face with goalkeeper Jörg Siebenhandl, the attacker decided to take one more shot, which meant that the opportunity was lost.
After a shot in the back at the Austrians, goalkeeper Siebenhandl committed a foul on Mario Götze, after which PSV received a penalty just before half-time. Vinícius then shot from eleven meters.
