PSV will play the first match in the group stage of the Europa League on Thursday. Real Sociedad is the opponent of the Eindhoven players at 9 p.m. in the Philips stadium, who just failed to reach the main tournament of the Champions League last month. With Sociedad, PSV is assigned to AS Monaco and Sturm Graz.
Midfielder Ibrahim Sangaré is still injured in his groin and cannot play. Trainer Roger Schmidt has no other personnel problems.
The first round of the group stage is also on the program in the Conference League, the third European tournament. Feyenoord already played against Maccabi Haifa (0-0) on Tuesday. AZ and Vitesse, the other two Dutch participants, will also play an away game first. The Alkmaarders will take on Randers FC in Denmark from 9 p.m. The Arnhem team kicks off in Slovenia at 6.45 pm against NS Mura.
