PSV traveled to Slovenia without newcomer Eran Zahavi on Wednesday for the match against NS Mura in the third heat of the Europa League. The Israeli striker is not yet eligible to play.
PSV took over Zahavi last weekend on a free transfer from the Chinese Guangzhou R&F, the club of trainer Giovanni van Bronckhorst. The Eindhoven club and the attacker are still waiting for the administrative handling of the transfer from China.
It is still unknown when Zahavi can make his debut for PSV. The team of coach Roger Schmidt will visit Heracles Almelo on Sunday in the next league game.
In addition to Zahavi, PSV also has to do without the injured Érick Gutiérrez and Armando Obispo against Mura. Goalkeeper Vincent Müller, who came over from the German Würzburger Kickers earlier in the day, has also not traveled to Slovenia.
The confrontation between Mura and PSV is about one match. The winner will advance to the play-offs for the Europa League, which will be played next week. The Norwegian Rosenborg or the Turkish Alanyaspor is the opponent in this.
The match between Mura and PSV starts on Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Slovenian town of Murska Sobota and is led by Swiss referee Sandro Schärer.
