The duel for the return round of the qualifiers that serve to define the last classified for the tournament will be held at Philips stadium, in Eindhoven. Kick off is scheduled for 18h30 UTC


PSV opened the 2022/2023 national calendar by placing another trophy in its gallery. Just like last year, he won the Dutch Supercup. In the 2022 version of the tournament, they beat Ajax in an electrifying eight-goal final. The meeting marked the debut of Ruud van Nistelrooy as head coach. After experiences in the youth divisions, the former player was chosen to replace Roger Schmidt, who after two years in charge chose not to renew his contract and sign with Benfica.

The Eindhoven team scored 5-3. At the weekend, it was time to make his debut in the new edition of the Eredivisie, in which he was surpassed by Ajax in the last three editions. In the most recent, he saw the title slip away by just two points of difference. The beginning was convincing. With the possibility of playing at Philips Stadium, on Saturday, August 6, FC Emmen thrashed. It scored 4-1. It left the impression that it could have even made a bigger difference.

The match was decided in the first half. Having received a pass from Simons, Bakayoko put the Eindhoven team ahead in the 18th minute. In the 26th minute, Kieftenbeld scored against increasing PSV's lead, who made the third in the 38th minute. This time on its own merits. Gakpo scored with assistance from Obispo. In the final phase, perhaps already thinking about the match on Tuesday, he took his foot off the accelerator. He still scored the fourth goal in the nine minutes. Again pointed out by Gakpo. Had the defense leaked by Haar Romeny in the 17th minute.


Monaco also had the opening game of the 2022/2023 version of the French Championship on their agenda over the weekend. Third place in the last edition of Ligue 1, counting on a sprint in the final stretch that had nine wins and a draw, it had a start that confirmed its evolution. Acting outside their domains, they beat Strasbourg 2-1.

The score was even modest given their superiority in the match. He had the ball for 47% of the time, during which time he developed more than twice as many opportunities to shoot (24 to 11) and led the rate of shots on target (11 to 7), even without being able to maintain the same proportion of the previous statistic. . He opened the scoring in the 43rd minute of the first half through Diatta, who had a pass from Disasi.

In the final phase, Diop, at eight minutes, extended his lead. The hosts decreased in the 20th minute in a goal signaled by Diallo, but they couldn't go beyond that. In the first game of the match against PSV, Monaco stayed with the ball longer (57%) and created more chances to shoot (13-7). However, there was equality in the right finishes. There were two for each side. The Dutch team scored with Veerman in the 38th minute of the first half. The Monegasques equalized with Disasi in the 35th minute of the final stage.
