Player stats in the CL from UEFA
Geertruida vs Celtic:
Gonna be interesting to see the battle between Veerman and Martin Ødegaard.
In this link you can find a profile for each of the players too, and after the match the personal match record!
Arsenal are capable of putting up a lot of goals against this PSV team. It will be an interesting match and we'll see if PSV stand a chance in the CL.
Yeah, it's going to be interesting to see if Schouten can put up a first barrier against Arsenal's attack to cover for Ramalho.
I pretty much called it. PSV are so bad defensively.
That second goal shouldnot happen. There were 3 PSV players covering nobody at the circle on the edge of the box, while the guy who scores get's the ball passed to him in free position.
Total Arsenal dominance.
I shut my TV off after 3rd goal
Arsenal simply better at every single position. PSV have to really step up and beat the other two teams in the group. Looks like both Portuguese teams will lose tonight.
Shambolic defending PSV. I’m watching Teze Dest & Boscagli just keep dropping off and not getting to the ball.
Veerman and Saibari can’t move well enough and they were completely useless in MF defensively.
Just too much space for Arsenal.
Veerman for Oranje needs to stop. The man is too slow.
Luuk De Jong no threat either.
Would like to have seen Babadi get some run over Vertesen who almost never does anything and Tillman.
Tough night but it was almost self inflicted with this type of naïve defensive approach.
Voetbal International's rating of the CL matches:
Calvin Stengs opened the scoring from a free kick in the extra time of the first half and substitute Alireza Jahanbakhsh made it 2-0 in the 76th minute. In the second half, Feyenoord missed chances for more after two red cards for Celtic, but what was also striking was how little Arne Slot's team had given away when the Scots were still with eleven men.
The return to the Champions League was one to quickly forget for PSV. Arsenal proved far too strong and outclassed Bosz's team in every way. That results in no fewer than eight failing grades for the Eindhoven formation. The entire defense, including goalkeeper Walter Benítez, did not get higher than a 5. Ismael Saibari, Joey Veerman and Luuk de Jong also failed to score. Jerdy Schouten is the only player to get a 6 for his performance against Arsenal.
The PSV ratings were more than charitable. How any of the defenders even got a 5 is baffling. Dest was beaten almost every single time and the rest of them were no better.
In UEFA referee circles there's doubt about how things went with the free kick, resulting in a goal, according to this article.
Feyenoord players pushing the limits of what's allowed/not allowed since 2019, when the opponent forms a wall.
This looks alot like the Feyenoord free kick.
Really hope Ajax at least takes a draw, but a win would be perfect in our battle with France.
Whoa, AZ is running amok
Total meltdown by AZ... hit the post on 3-1 and give up 2 quick goals. 3-3.
Gsus, this Sparta - AZ cosplay, where they gave up a 0-4 lead.
I'm curious about the role of the goalie, of whom I've not a high opinion.
