There is much to be said about the fitness of the PSV players this season and that will again be the subject of discussion in the coming days. Three days before the squatter at Ajax, the wing attackers Noni Madueke (19) and Cody Gakpo (22) dropped out with muscle injuries against AS Monaco.
Noni Madueke had to leave injured in the 54th minute. The English attacker seemed to grab his hamstring and went to the side severely irritated. Yorbe Vertessen was his replacement. Four minutes later, Cody Gakpo scored the 1-1 against AS Monaco, but the Dutch international also fell out shortly afterwards with an injury after he landed unhappily after an aerial duel. He was replaced by the Portuguese Bruma.
PSV will visit Ajax next Sunday (4.45 pm), which gained a lot of confidence on Tuesday evening with a 4-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League. In the Eredivisie, Ajax leads the way with 22 points after nine matches, one point more than pursuer PSV. FC Utrecht and Willem II follow with 17 points.
The 22-year-old Gakpo has seven goals and eight assists in 19 games this season. The 19-year-old Madueke has six goals and an assist after sixteen games this season. On August 7, Madueke still shone in the Johan Cruijff Arena, where he made a major contribution with two beautiful goals in the 0-4 victory over Ajax in the battle for the Johan Cruijff Scale. Madueke was recently sidelined for two weeks with a muscle injury, while Gakpo dropped out of the Orange at the beginning of this month due to a concussion against Latvia. He therefore did not participate against Gibraltar.
