12 'PSV seems to be doing business quickly against VVV-Venlo, because the team from Eindhoven grab their opponent by the throat when the ball is immediately lost in the enemy half.

That's how trainer Roger Schmidt likes to see it.

The German is the so-called 'full throttle football' for.

According to that doctrine, the opponent must continuously gasp for breath.

PSV-VVV · a few seconds ago

8 'The proportions quickly become apparent in the Philips Stadium.

PSV dictates the game and VVV-Venlo limits itself to defending.
