Granada-PSV a few seconds ago

Matchwinner Malen: 'Wintering was the main goal'


With a nice goal, Donyell Malen is responsible for the only goal in the match between Granada and PSV, which means that PSV reaches the last 32 of the Europa League.

"A great goal, I think. Just a very good attack, with a great cross from Philipp and I hit him nicely", the striker beams afterwards, when he has pulled himself away from the party after it becomes clear that PSV is wintering.

"It is beautiful, it was one of our main goals to keep going. It was tough in the second half, you know they are going to come. You are getting more and more tired, but so were them."

AZ-Napoli · a few seconds ago

"Fantastic after such a result today"


"This is fantastic after such a result today", Bruno Martins Indi at

FOX Sports

says 

about AZ's starting position after the 1-1 draw against Napoli.

The Alkmaarders have the winter in their own hands.

"We played very well and conquered balls when they wanted to get out. The last pass was sometimes not good enough and we could do better at 0-1, but gave a good response with my 1-1. "I just started cheering to influence the referee, it wasn't offside either. Rijeka out isn't easy. We'll see if we reward ourselves."

Granada-PSV 6 minutes ago

Qualification for the next round is a big boost for PSV.

After the Eindhoven team only just missed the quarter finals of the Champions League in the 2015/2016 season, results in Europe were not forthcoming after that.

Koopmeiners guilty after missed penalty


AZ captain Teun Koopmeiners shows guilt after his missed penalty kick against Napoli.

"I shoot it with conviction, but he takes it. If I get a penalty, I don't see where I have shot it in the last five times. If it is caught well, it will be caught well. I am leaving the team. I will have a problem with this for a while. "

Granada-PSV 15 minutes ago

The stand in group E, where PSV does excellent business and qualifies for the sixteenth finals together with Granada.

The Eindhoven team can even become group winners, but then have to beat Omonia themselves on the last day of play and hope that Granada will lose points against PAOK.

Despite the victory in Spain, the mutual result is in favor of Granada, after the 1-2 in Eindhoven.



  • Granada 5-10 (6-3)

  • PSV 5-9 (8-9)

  • PAOK Salonika 5-5 (8-7)

  • Omonia Nicosia 5-4 (5-8)

    AZ-Napoli 16 minutes ago

    Despite the current third place in the group, AZ has a ticket for the knockout round of the Europa League in its own hands.

    Real Sociedad is second after the draw against HNK Rijeka (2-2), but will meet leader Napoli next week and so AZ always passes Napoli or Real Sociedad in a three-pointer in Croatia.



    Stand in group F:


  • Napoli 5-

    PSV hibernates in EL after hard-fought victory over Granada


    Thanks to a hard-fought 0-1 win over Granada, PSV has secured a winter stay in the Europa League.

    Donyell Malen crowns a strong first half of the team from Eindhoven with a cool goal, by tapping between two men on the instructions of Philipp Max.

    In the second half, Granada puts a lot of pressure on, but the PSV defense holds up.

    Because Omonia Nicosia wins 2-1 against PAOK Saloniki, the Eindhoven team is certain of a place in the first two in the group and thus the knockout phase.

    AZ-Napoli 25 minutes ago

    AZ has the winter in its own hands by a draw against Napoli


    AZ can still hope for winter in the Europa League.

    Due to the handsome 1-1 draw against Napoli, the team of trainer Arne Slot still has a ticket for the knockout phase in its own hands.

    AZ is still behind due to an early goal by Dries Mertens, but equalizes after the break via Bruno Martins Indi.

    Not much later Teun Koopmeiners gets an excellent opportunity from the penalty spot to shoot the Alkmaarders at 2-1.

    However, his bet is turned by goalkeeper David Ospina.

    AZ only needs to beat HNK Rijeka next week to reach the next round.

    Granada-PSV 28 minutes ago

    88 'However, PSV currently has too much on its mind to think about wintering.

    Zahavi grabs his hamstring and his match seems to be over.

    Schmidt had to let the striker come in earlier than he had wanted and now it becomes clear why.

    He is replaced by Jorrit Hendrix, who must help PSV win the hard-fought victory.

    AZ-Napoli 31 minutes ago

    86 'AZ is getting away very well.

    Again it is Andrea Petagna who appears freely in front of the goal of Marco Bizot and again the substitute does not get the ball in.

    This time he slides it next to the target.

    31 minutes ago

    Omonia Nicosia-PAOK Salonika 32 minutes ago

    85 'GOAL Omonia Nicosia!

    2-1



    Excellent news for PSV from Cyprus, where Jordi Gomez once again gives Omonia the lead against PAOK from the penalty spot.

    With these standings, PSV is sure of the knockout phase in the Europa League!

    AZ-Napoli 34 minutes ago

    80 'A risky yet successful intervention by Marco Bizot.

    The AZ goalkeeper comes out just in time to get rid of the broken Hirving Lozano.

    The North Hollander also takes a leg of Lozano with him, but fortunately the referee sees no violation for AZ.

    Granada-PSV 34 minutes ago

    The PSV players gather around the injured captain Dumfries, probably to catch their breath.

    The Eindhoven defense has a hard time against the Spanish attack waves, but is still holding on.

    Real Sociedad-HNK Rijeka36 minutes ago

    80 'GOAL Real Sociedad!

    2-2



    It continues to rain goals in San Sebastian and that is now bad news for AZ, as Real Sociedad is on a level with HNK Rijeka.

    Nacho Monreal works in with a hard shot.

    Granada-PSV 41 minutes ago

    76 'A razor-sharp counter from PSV almost yields the 0-2.

    Again Max is sent deep on the left, but Gakpo just cannot reach the cross.

    The pressure from Granada therefore also means that there is more room for the fast PSV attackers in the counter-stroke.

    41 minutes ago

    AZ-Napoli 41 minutes ago

    76 'AZ escapes a deficit here.

    Andrea Petagna can head in completely freely, but the Italian substitute has not adjusted his sights and sees his bet end up next to the goal of AZ goalkeeper Marco Bizot.

    Real Sociedad-HNK Rijeka 42 minutes ago

    73 'GOAL HNK Rijeka!

    1-2



    HNK Rijeka will offer a lifebuoy for AZ, which is still looking for a lead against Napoli.

    The Croats take the lead again just after the equalizer of Real Sociedad.

    Stjepan Loncar comes in after a corner kick that has been turned off.

    Granada-PSV 44 minutes ago

    72 'Dumfries has finally driven off the field with a cart.

    He is replaced by Timo Baumgartl, who will play centrally in the back, while Teze takes over the right back position.

    Granada-PSV one hour ago

    70 'A setback for PSV: Dumfries cannot continue and must be replaced.

    It is striking that the right back has already given his captaincy to Rosario and therefore knows that he will be replaced, but will remain on the field for a while.

    He may want to give his teammates a break, or try to break the rhythm and concentration of Granada.

    Real Sociedad-HNK Rijeka one hour ago

    69 'GOAL Real Sociedad!

    1-1



    These are bad reports for AZ: Real Sociedad is on a par with HNK Rijeka.

    At this position, the Alkmaarders no longer have control over the qualification for the knockout phase of the Europa League.

    70 'Myron Boadu finally makes his appearance at AZ.

    The striker replaces Albert Gudmundsson, who was unable to convince in the point of the Alkmaar attack.

    AZ-Napoli one hour ago

    The moment that Teun Koopmeiners will often haunt through his thoughts tonight with his eyes closed.

    He misses a penalty against Napoli and thus fails to give AZ a good lead against the illustrious Serie A club.

    Granada-PSV one hour ago

    67 'There is Granada again, the game now waves up and down, but still takes place more often than PSV would like for Mvogo's goal.

    However, the keeper pays close attention to a vicious shot from Machís and whips the ball out of the short corner.

    Granada-PSV one hour ago

    66 'PSV is also active in an offensive way and misses a phenomenal goal here.

    A clever bow ball from Götze is shot at goal by Zahavi.

    However, the striker's attempt disappears right into the hands of Silva.

    AZ-Napoli one hour ago

    65 'Napoli coach Gattuso has seen enough and takes goal scorer Dries Mertens to the side.

    Diego Demme replaces him and with that Gattuso has used all his five substitutions.

    Just as a result, former PSV player Hirving Lozano also came within the lines.

    Granada-PSV one hour ago

    64 'The pressure from Granada is increasing and it is shaking PSV.

    Soldado keeps the overview and lays back on the incoming Herrera, who, however, shoots wildly over.

    AZ-Napoli one hour ago

    63 'Even after the missed penalty kick from captain Teun Koopmeiners, AZ is not upset and continues imperturbably with attacks against the dutifully playing Napoli.

    Koopmeiners gets the ball from about 20 meters and lashes out, but finds a Neapolitan on his way.

    Granada-PSV one hour ago

    60 'PSV gets away well!

    Granada puts the Eindhoven team under increasing pressure and is close to the equalizer via a header from Machís.

    The ball skims past the wrong side of the post for Granada and goes wide.

    AZ-Napoli one hour ago

    50 ' 

    Penalty missed! 

    Teun Koopmeiners, right.

    The AZ captain, usually a certainty from the dot, sees his bet turned in the left corner by Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina.

    The Colombian taps the ball against the post with his fingertips.

    Granada-PSV one hour ago

    57 'The whole of PSV is startled when the referee whistles after a triple collision between Mvogo, Dumfries and Suárez in the Eindhoven penalty area.

    However, the referee whistles for a violation by the Granada player.

    Dumfries remains injured for a while, but has more pain than damage and can continue.

    AZ-Napoli one hour ago

    59 ' 

    Penalty for AZ! 

    Zakaria Aboukhlal is knocked over in the Neapolitan penalty area and the referee is in no doubt.

    He points to the dot.

    Does Teun Koopmeiners AZ put the lead from 11 meters?

    AZ-Napoli one hour ago

    The moment when the hearts of Alkmaar jump.

    Bruno Martins Indi escapes offside and taps in the equalizer with his heel.

    Granada-PSV one hour ago

    Goal scorer Donyell Malen gives declarant Philipp Max a grateful hug.

    Granada-PSV one hour ago

    55 'Götze lightly gets rid of two opponents and finds the rising Dumfries.

    The shot from the right back is not bad and has to be blocked by Silva.

    After the break, PSV continued on the same footing as in the first half.

    AZ-Napoli one hour ago

    54 'GOAL AZ!

    1-1



    There is the coveted equalizer for AZ against Napoli.

    Teun Koopmeiners decides to take a shot directly from a corner kick by Fredrik Midtsjø and on the way the ball is touched with the heel by Bruno Martins Indi.

    Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina can no longer do anything about that.

    He still complains for offside, but the repetition shows that Martins Indi is just in front of the last defender.

    A valid goal, so.

    AZ-Napoli one hour ago

    53 'Oh, Calvin Stengs anyway.

    AZ's right winger has the equalizer for the shot in when a cross from the left shoots through and lands in front of his feet, but he is aiming in the stands.

    OGC Nice-Bayer Leverkusen one hour ago

    52 'GOAL Bayer Leverkusen!

    2-3



    For the third time tonight, Peter Bosz takes the lead with Bayer Leverkusen.

    Julian Baumgartlinger subtly extends a sharp free kick from Nadiem Amiri to the goal.

    Can the Germans keep this lead, or can Nice come alongside again?

    AZ-Napoli one hour ago

    51 'Marco Bizot has to take action when the rising left back Owen Wijndal breaks down on the Neapolitan defense.

    From the subsequent counterattack, Napoli-back Faouzi Ghoulam has plenty of time to deliver a good cross, but he finds Bizot's hands.

    2-2



    Trainer Peter Bosz has to deal with a downer with 'his' Bayer Leverkusen shortly after the break.

    He sees his goalkeeper Lukás Hrádecky foul on a free kick, allowing Dan Ndoye to equalize in France in the rebound.
