Locadia, De Jong goals give PSV 2-0 win over Wolfsburg

November 3, 2015

EINDHOVEN, Netherlands (AP) Juergen Locadia and Luuk de Jong scored second-half goals Tuesday as PSV Eindhoven beat Wolfsburg 2-0 in the Champions League to move off the bottom of Group B.

Locadia, who missed a penalty against Wolfsburg two weeks ago, made no mistake this time when he ran onto a through pass by De Jong and slid the ball past goalkeeper Diego Benaglio and just inside the near post in the 55th minute. De Jong added to his assist with his first Champions League goal in the 86th, skillfully lobbing Benaglio after a speculative pass from the left touch line by Andres Guardado.

PSV's second victory in Group B sent it second, level on six points with third-place Wolfsburg. Manchester United went top of the group thanks to a 1-0 victory over CSKA Moscow.

''We can be very proud,'' De Jong said. ''We played a great match, gave almost nothing away.''


Wolfsburg only managed two meaningful efforts all night. Striker Bas Dost was denied by PSV goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet in the 22nd minute and Zoet easily blocked a powerful shot by Naldo in the 82nd.

Locadia came closest to breaking the deadlock in the last minute of a dour first half when he latched onto a through ball from Davy Proepper and fired through the legs of defender Luiz Gustavo only to see Benaglio dive to his left to block the shot.
