Steven Bergwijn put PSV on 1-0.
PSV recovered with the profits of the loss against Feyenoord (2-1) two weeks ago. That was the first defeat of the Locals this season. Heracles had this season in the league in their own stadium only to be lost from Feyenoord. The team of coach Frank Wormuth picked up also a point in the Johan Cruijff ArenA against Ajax.
The first Eindhoven goal fell after only twelve minutes. Steven Bergwijn was accurate after a delicious passje of Jorrit Hendrix. The attacker devoured Heracles-goalie Janis Blaswich with a cold-blooded puntertje, after he on speed and class had already settled with the staggering weak Stephen Sama.
Daniel Schwaab doubled after more than a half hour to play the lead. The German defender headed home touch, after Luuk de Jong a corner with the head extended. The Heracles defence stood there and looked at it.
PSV was on the stroke of peace and quiet in the saddle, helped by a violation of Jesper Drost, who, after the intervention of the VAR red received for an action with straight leg. Also Brandley Kuwas put a coin in the bag. The winger got in a total of three great chances, but had the visor not as sharp.
Referee Dennis Higler send Jesper Drost of Heracles with red to the locker room.
Ten minutes before time, threw Denzel Dumfries the duel with a brilliant header in the slot. Again turned out to PSV in a corner smarter than Heracles.
In stoppage time went on, the ball is still on the dot after a hansbal of Heracles defender Lennart Czyborra, who Higler and the VAR with red was allowed to leave. The deployment of substitute Gaston Pereiro was stopped by Blaswich, but sixteen seconds later, it was the goalie when a new opportunity is still beaten by the Uruguayan. He headlined touch after a cross from Angelino, leaving PSV after sixteen duels already a goal difference of plus fifty(!) .
