Despite a promising start to the season, they've managed just one victory since October, landing them in the relegation zone.

For Excelsior, the absence of left-back Arthur Zagre due to a hamstring injury is a significant blow.

Their defence, already conceding 60 goals this season, may continue with Lazaros Lamprou on the left flank in Zagre's absence.

PSV's concerns include the long-term absence of winger Noa Lang and a potential change with Malik Tillman possibly stepping in for an injured Hirving Lozano.
