Goals galore in 3-3 draw in Den Haag
ADO Den Haag and PSV shared honours in an entertaining 3-3 draw in the Cars Jeans Stadion on Sunday afternoon. PSV wore their new away shirt for the first time. The design inspiration for the new kit came from the 1988 kit, the year in which PSV won the European Cup I.
The Icelander Albert Gudmundsson made his first league start for PSV, who dominated the early opening exchanges.
An agile three-man strike force, Gudmundsson, Steven Bergwijn and Hirving Lozano, with Gaston Pereiro playing behind the striker, set up some nice flowing moves and got their reward on 11 minutes..
Lozano opened the scoring but picked up an injury. He needed treatment and when PSV were temporarily reduced to ten men, Johnsen netted an equaliser for the hosts. Lozano was replaced by Donyell Malen.
ADO Den Haag won a penalty on 26 minutes and El Khayati converted the spot kick. PSV had chances to level the score but Gudmundsson was denied by Groothuizen, when one-on-one with the ADO Den Haag goalkeeper.
It was all square again on the hour mark, when Daniel Schwaab flicked on the ball from a corner and Pereiro headed home: 2-2. Pablo Rosario and Steven Bergwijn had chances to put PSV ahead but ADO regained the lead in the 72nd minute.
ADO Den Haag’s Norwegian striker Johnsen netted his second of the game, but Gaston Pereiro bagged a brace for PSV with five minutes remaining.
The Uruguayan unleashed a vicious strike beyond the reach of Groothuizen. PSV went in search of a winner but were eventually held to a 3-3 draw.
