PSV Overcame Excelsior Challange To Cement Their Place On Top
League leaders PSV easily went past welcoming Excelsior by 1-2 even if the scoreline doesn’t represent so.
It was a routine win for the club which is been driven in the right path again by master Philip Kakou who guided the club to two consecutive league titles and gave the reputation of the Dutch club to often play in the Champions league. This season he is leading the club once again to achieve the crown in May next year.
Excelsior are always a hard test at home and had troubled big guns like Ajax and Feyenoord in the past. But a team who is deafening all odds dare to come in their path is almost an unstoppable express train destined for a finite target.
The Uruguay young kid Lozano has been so far the main player obediently following his manager’s word. The new signed playmaker have an exciting mindset always trying to produce something. Lozano keenly performed again to help his club to achieve familiar results.
The league leaders were up on the scoreline just 12 minutes when Locadia’s cross was accidentally turned into his own net by center back Mattheij. Lozano put a ball towards the right flank where Locadia was ready to accept his pass. Next spotting a run from club captain Luuk De Jong, Locadia dragged a cross towards him. That caused Mattheij in a huge amount of pressure. He had to deal with the cross as well as prevent De Jong to receive it. That blank shed caused confusion and he sliced a foot at the ball resulting in an own goal.
The away side’s celebration was pictured again in the 41st minute when star kid Lozano rippled the net. A venomous through from Santiago Arias from the back allowed Gaston Perreiro in acres of space to find bodies inside the box. Lozano went at the end of his minus to slid past his shot away from the keeper carrying a slight deflection on its way.
Excelsior snatched a conciliation in the 52nd minute but that was not enough to die down the titles hopes of the league leaders who are five points clear of Ajax at second.
