PSV vs Sturm Lineups, Preview, and Team Information

PSV

There were a lot of changes in PSV's locker room this summer. There is a new coach in place with Peter Bosz taking over the helm and a couple of new players came in with Noa Lang and Ricardo Pepi replacing the most important figure of last season Xavi Simmons. Armando Obispo and Mauro Junior are injured.

Predicted lineup: Benitez, Teze, Ramalho, Boscagli, van Aanholt, Sangare, Babadi, Veerman, Bakayoko, de Jong, Lang.

Sturm

The Austrian team will be the underdog in this matchup, but they will certainly believe that there will be a chance, especially with the return leg being played at their home stadium.

Predicted lineup: Scherpen, Gazibegovic, Affengruber, Wuthrich, Schnegg, Hierlander, Gorenc Stankovic, Prass, Kiteishvili, Sarkaria, Wlodarczyk.

Player to Watch: Noa Lang

After having a turbulent summer with some high-profile departures, PSV lured away talented winger Noa Lang from Club Brugge in their biggest transfer of the new season. Lang was prolific for the Belgian side where he has played in 125 matches scoring 38 goals and delivering 34 assists. But, he also had a rough disciplinary track record accumulating 34 yellow cards and being sent off on three occasions.

However, Lang's quickness and creativity in the wing position will be a great complement to a team that lost its most important player this summer, Xavi Simmons. Lang is his direct replacement. As a young player, Lang went through Feyenoord's and more importantly, Ajax's academy where he spent six years before moving to the senior team. He has been capped by the Netherlands national team seven times scoring a couple of goals.
