Footballer Noa Lang, aged 24, has been making headlines since joining PSV Eindhoven from Club Brugge earlier this year. His contributions have been key to PSV's success this season, helping them win every league game so far and aiming for their first title in six years. However, a hamstring injury had him sidelined for several weeks, only allowing him to return to the field as a substitute in the recent match against FC Twente, which PSV won 0-3.

Setback in Lang's Return

While fans of PSV would have been delighted to see Lang back in action, his return has been marred by a minor setback. This has led to Lang being ruled out for the upcoming game against Sevilla, as confirmed by PSV's coach, Peter Bosz. Despite Lang having traveled to Andalusia with the team, Bosz has made it clear that they won't be taking any risks with his recovery. At this point, it remains uncertain whether Lang will be fit for the top match against Feyenoord on Sunday.

Lozano Stepping Up

In Lang's absence, Hirving Lozano has been filling the left winger position for PSV, where he has been performing admirably. Lozano has scored four goals and provided one assist, proving himself to be a reliable substitute in Lang's absence.

Upcoming Decisive Match for PSV

Currently, PSV is facing a crucial match against Sevilla, scheduled to kick off at 18:45. A win in this match, combined with a loss by RC Lens against Arsenal, would secure PSV's position in the last sixteen of the Champions League for the first time since 2016. A draw or loss, however, would mean the decision comes down to a home game against Arsenal in two weeks. Despite this, Coach Bosz has expressed his team's intention to win in Sevilla and not rely on the final match, even if Arsenal has already qualified for the next round by then.
