Just a week after seeing their dreams of playing in the Champions League this season getting crashed, PSV Eindhoven have no options but to move on as the fixtures come thick and fast at this early stage in the season.
That said, this is also really the crucial stage for the Dutch giant as a season without the European football can make a great hole in their spending powers, and it depends on how they perform in the Europa League qualifiers.
This is the 3rd qualifying rounds, which will be followed by the play-offs.
PSV are set to face Norwegian club Haugesund FC across two legs. Of course, the 24-time Eredivisie champions are huge favorites, but this is the knockout competition, whose main feature is the degree of improbability, and the shocks it produces every season.
The Europa League Qualifiers match will be played between Haugesund and PSV Eindhoven at Haugesund Stadion, in Haugesund, Norway. The ground has a capacity of 8,754
The game will start at 10:30 PM (IST), on Thursday, August 08.
