PSV have enjoyed a dominant season in the league, winning 28 of their 32 matches and losing just once.

They went 17 games before even dropping a point in the Eredivisie, finally losing their unbeaten record on the 27th matchday with a 3-1 loss away to NEC Nijmegen.

Victory ends the club’s six-year wait for the Dutch championship – also the 25th in their history.
