PSV, without Arias, burst out of the blocks and snatched a 9th-minute lead with their first meaningful effort on goal. Jürgen Locadia beat the offside trap before slotting home the opening goal of the match: 1- 0.
Minutes later, Lozano had a chance to double PSV’s lead. The Mexican was played clean through but his weak effort was comfortably gathered by Roda JC keeper Hidde Jurjus, on loan from PSV.
PSV got their two-goal advantage on 24 minutes. Jürgen Locadia was at the end of a well-worked move. Jurjus pulled off a fine save to deny him but the rebound fell to Hirving Lozano who could not miss from one yard out: 2-0.
PSV were attack-minded after the break as well but their second-half performance was less sparkling than their first-half display. They had their moments but did not create any gilt-edged chances.
