"We did have to battle during the match", stated the manager. "Part of the reason we survived in the early stages was the good goalkeeping from Remko Pasveer. We stepped up during the match, scored a fantastic goal and then turned the duel to our advantage."
Ten Hag knew exactly what was going wrong during the opening stages. "We were sloppy on the ball and 'too eager' in defensive challenges. This meant we helped PSV to gain the advantage."
"Ultimately we got better and better on the ball", explained the manager. "At the start it still wasn't too easy. The spaces were small, and we had some difficulty."
