PSV coach Fred Rutten is keen to claim all three points against Legia Warsaw on Wednesday to ensure top spot in Europa League Group C.
Both sides have already ensured their advancement to the knockout stages with two games still to play, but Rutten is keen to secure top spot by getting a good result in Poland.
“We have already qualified from Group C and would very much like to win the group. That’s why we will take Wednesday’s match at Legia Warsaw very seriously,” Rutten told the club’s official website.
“We’ve always been favourites but Legia will also field a strong team. They’re a physically strong and organised team.”
Rutten then went on to explain that goalkeeper Przemyslaw Tyton will not feature in Wednesday’s match.
The Polish goalkeeper travelled to Poland along with the team for the first time since sustaining a concussion against Ajax in September, but PSV want to take things slowly with his recovery.
“Tyton is recovering well and has made two appearances with the reserves so far, but we want to take things slowly,” Rutten said. “Khalid Sinouh is on the bench.”
