At the beginning of the game, both teams first dropped away, before Eindhoven was then with the first chance of freezing cold: The home owners played well over left forward, Gakpo struck a clever hook in the sixteen and completed lower left (11th). The perfect start for the team of Roger Schmidt.
This hit gave the favorite of the Netherlands courage. The hosts in which Götze played a rather unobtrusive first half pressed on the 2-0, Madueke’s header was too unplaced (14.), and Gutierrez did not bring the necessary accuracy on his degree. Of Tel Aviv seemed offensive almost nothing, only biton approached by free-kick (27.). Dangerous was PSV, Zahavi also missed the second goal of his team (38th) by free kick before the reverse change.
In the second half, the game then completely flattened. Eindhoven had with more possession of the encounter although the encounter under control, but did not play with the last consequence on the second goal. Rather, it was about to stand back safely and not to catch the compensation. Since the guests were offensively completely toothless, it remained at the 1-0. So everything is open to the second leg in a week in Tel Aviv.
