Dutch giants PSV were staying staring a second-consecutive UEFA Champions League defeat in the face, but used a late equalizer to steal one point away from La Liga side Sevilla on Tuesday night.
Malik Tillman drew one penalty kick in PSV’s 2-2 home draw with Sevilla at the Philips Stadion, logging 90 minutes on home soil. Fellow U.S. men’s national team teammate Sergino Dest also went the distance for Peter Bosz’s squad while Ricardo Pepi played the final eight minutes off the bench.
Sevilla’s opening goal came in the 68th minute through Nemanja Gudelj’s half-volley finish in the PSV box. Sergio Ramos headed Jesus Navas’ service back across the PSV box before Gudelj’s powerful shot nestled into the back of the net.
PSV fought back though to tie things up as Tillman was bundled over in the box by Ramos. Luuk De Jong’s spot kick made it 1-1 for PSV as the veteran striker stepped up and delivered for the hosts.
Sevilla didn’t need much time though to regain its advantage as Youssef En-Nesyri’s header off the ensuring restart propelled Jose Luis Mendilibar’s squad back in front 2-1.
However, PSV right back Jordan Teze came to the rescue in the 95th minute as he slotted home from close-range. Sevilla failed to clear its line off a corner kick and Teze pounded on the loose ball in the box.
Tillman drew a match-high three fouls while also winning four duels and making one interception. Dest created one offensive opportunity, won four duels, and completed 94% of his passes.
Pepi completed all three of his passes in the match, including one to Tillman prior to the penalty ruling.
