PSV has left a good impression on the German media. The Eindhoven team played a draw against Borussia Dortmund (1-1) on Tuesday evening in the first leg of the eighth finals of the Champions League. According to the Germans, even more had lived there. They therefore conclude that PSV coach Peter Bosz is not satisfied.

None other than former PSV striker Donyell Malen shot those Boruses ahead in the Philips Stadium. The Eindhoven team then came alongside through a questionable penalty, which was used by captain Luuk de Jong.

Der Spiegel states that Borussia Dortmund should not only look critically at the arbitration. “Mats Hummels, the record holder for the most European matches ever for BVB, was furious about the penalty given. However, his trainer (Edin Terzic, ed.) must have simply seen a poor performance by the team.”

Bosz must also be dissatisfied, the medium says. “The ex-Dortmund coach must be annoyed. Annoyed because his team didn't win this game. The Germans had problems in Eindhoven on every level.”

Also BILD believes that PSV deserved more. “Certainly in the second half, PSV was simply the better team for a long time. PSV remained active, even when it did not create any chances. For BVB a draw is a very good result, especially because of the game image.”

Die Welt agrees with that. “PSV was the better team. Dortmund struggled with the playing style of the Eindhoven team. It resulted in poor build-up, lack of grip and therefore there was never control over the match. PSV should have won, but saved with all their efforts BVB the furniture.”

A difficult return awaits PSV at Signal Iduna Park on March 13. The people of Eindhoven are supported by a sold-out away section, filled with no fewer than 3,800 supporters. All tickets for this crucial away match were sold within minutes.
