PSV starts the important home game against PAOK Saloniki with the same eleven basic players as Sunday against FC Twente. Trainer Roger Schmidt still cannot use the injured Mario Götze. Noni Madueke once again takes the place of the German playmaker.

In addition to Götze, Ryan Thomas is also injured, as are Armando Obispo, Maximiliano Romero, Erick Gutierrez and Marco van Ginkel who have been absent for some time. Mohamed Ihattaren is missing from the PSV selection.

After three rounds of play, PSV is in third place in group E with 3 points. Granada leads with 7 points, ahead of PAOK with 5 points. Three weeks ago PSV lost the away match in Greece 4-1.

PSV line-up: Mvogo; Dumfries, Teze, Boscagli, Max; Rosario, Madueke, Sangaré; Gakpo, Zahavi, Malen.


AZ starts at 9 p.m. with Albert Gudmundsson in the home game against Real Sociedad. The Icelander is again preferred to Myron Boadu, who starts on the bench.

Trainer Arne Slot also chose Gudmundsson during the home game with FC Emmen (1-0) last Sunday. He wanted to reward the Icelander for his good game before the international match against SC Heerenveen.
