The KNVB Cup returns this week and will see PSV Eindhoven host NAC Breda at the Philips Stadion on Tuesday night in the quarterfinals of the cup competition.

PSV Eindhoven picked up a comfortable 2-0 win over Fortuna Sittard in their opening cup game, with Japanese international Ritsu Down scoring both goals. They then completed a 2-1 comeback win over Telstar in their next game.

PSV Eindhoven were knocked out at this stage of the tournament last season by eventual winners Ajax, as they lost 2-1 to the Amsterdam outfit. They will be hoping for better luck this time around.

NAC Breda beat VVV-Venlo on penalties in their first cup game of the season before picking up a 3-2 win over Utrecht in the second round in an end-to-end affair which saw the visitors clinch a last-minute winner. They then beat PEC Zwolle 2-1 in the next round.

The visitors' furthest run in the cup competition in the last decade came back in 2020 when they made it to the semifinals of the competition.
