Feyenoord lost for the first time on Friday under the leadership of the new trainer Jaap Stam. The Rotterdam club lost 3-1 in Leogang, Austria, in a friendly game with Red Bull Salzburg. PSV easily beat the Greek Aris Saloniki in Oosterhout: 3-0.

The earlier three games in preparation were all won by Feyenoord. The amateurs of Putten (6-0), Kitchen Champion Division club FC Dordrecht (2-1) and the German Darmstadt 99 (2-1) were defeated, but the Rotterdammers were unable to cope with the ruling Austrian national champion. The eighteen-year-old substitute Wouter Burger scored the only goal for Feyenoord.

Stam, who is training camp with Feyenoord in Austria, had Liam Kelley make his unofficial debut. The Irish midfielder was just like experienced players such as Steven Berghuis, Jens Toornstra, Eric Botteghin and Kenneth Vermeer.

Jeremiah St. Juste, Sven van Beek, Tyrell Malacia, Yassin Ayoub, Dylan Vente and Emil Hansson were also allowed to start.

Goal Sinisterra rejected because of offside

Halfway through the score was 0-0, despite missed opportunities from Berghuis, Vente and a good header opportunity for Botteghin. Salzburg also left opportunities unused.

In the second half - with nine other players on the Feyenoord side - Erling Braut Haaland opened the score for the Austrians, who ended in 2-0 and 3-0 in the last fifteen minutes. Both goals came in the name of Patson Daka and both times Feyenoord-substitute Lutsharel Geertruida and did not look strong. In between, a Rotterdam goal from Luis Sinisterra was rejected due to offside. Seven minutes before time, Burger set the final score at 3-1.

On Wednesday Feyenoord will play the next exhibition game and then the Greek Panathinaikos will be the opponent. Stam's team also practices against French Angers (July 24) and Premier League club Southampton (July 28).

PSV wins at debut Bruma

PSV had little trouble in Oosterhout with Aris Saloniki, which finished fifth in the Greek league last year. It became 3-0. It is only the first practice win of the season for PSV, which previously scored 0-0 against FC Sion and lost 3-2 to OGC Nice.

Donyell Malen was twice accurate against Aris for the team of coach Mark van Bommel. He opened the score just before half-time by tapping the ball from close by and headed in a hit from a Denzel Dumfries cross. Just before time, Joël Pieroe set the final score at 3-0.

Van Bommel let the Portuguese acquisition Bruma have his first minutes made. The attacker, who came from RB Leipzig, played as left winger alongside striker Malen and the coveted Steven Bergwijn.

Jeroen Zoet was on target, while the defense was formed by Dumfries, Derrick Luckassen, Nick Viergever and Steven Theunissen. Pablo Rosario, Sam Lammers and Jorrit Hendrix started in midfield. Van Bommel changed his base eleven after an hour.

Not even minutes for Lato and Afellay

Toni Lato and Ibrahim Afellay were not included in the selection. Afellay in particular seems to need some time to get fit. The Lato hired from Valencia is expected to make its debut on Wednesday, when PSV will complete a friendly game with VfL Wolfsburg.

PSV is already playing the first match on July 23 in the second heat of the Champions League against FC Basel. A week later the return is in Switzerland.

The Eredivisie season starts for Feyenoord on Sunday 4 August with the Rotterdam derby in De Kuip against Sparta. PSV opens the season a day earlier with a away game against FC Twente.
