PSV Eindhoven vs. AC Milan, 2013 UEFA Champions League: Preview and TV schedule

PSV Eindhoven have conceded just twice en route to winning all five of their competitive games so far this season, with the Eredivisie runners-up now hosting AC Milan at the Philips Stadion. With the Serie A season not kicking off until next weekend, Milan are yet to play a single competitive game, perhaps handing the Dutch side an early match fitness advantage.

PSV may be without teenager Zakaria Bakkali who has been struggling with a groin injury, though a rather more concerning absentee would be Dutch international Luciano Narsingh. The midfielder hasn't played a game since last December, and has been recovering from surgery on a knee ligament injury. He's likely to miss out again.AC Milan have a couple of players on the injury list, with full-back Mattia De Sciglio and striker Robinho both left out of Max Allegri's squad.

The rossoneri haven't beaten PSV in their last three meetings, and have lost both of their last two games at the Philips Stadion. Incumbent PSV coach Phillip Cocu played in both of those matches, and will be hoping to mastermind another win this time around -- albeit from the bench, rather than the midfield.
