PSV midfielder Jorrit Hendrix says victory over CSKA Moscow and subsequent Champions League qualification would give football in the Netherlands a huge boost.

The Dutch champions know that a win in their home clash would guarantee their place in the last 16, while a draw would be enough if Manchester United lose to Wolfsburg in Group B’s other game on Tuesday.

Hendrix has urged his PSV team-mates not to consider the match in Germany and focus on their own jobs in the final matchday.

“It will be a tough match and CSKA will punish us if we make any mistakes,” he said.

“They are deadly in transition from defence to attack. There is a lot at stake for us, we play to win. We are only concentrating on ourselves.

“Of course it would be a boost for Dutch football [if PSV qualify]. We are ready for Tuesday and we know what is required.”

PSV last qualified for the knockout stages back in the 2006-07 season.
