PSV still seeking win after Twente draw

August 9, 2009

PSV Eindhoven are still looking for their first win of the season after sharing the points with Twente Enschede in a 1-1 draw in the Dutch league on Sunday.

Twente pushed aside memories of Tuesday's last-minute Champions League elimination by Portugal's Sporting in the third qualifying round by opening the scoring in the 19th minute through Brazilian Douglas.

Six minutes later Balazs Dzsudzsak replied for the visitors.

After two matches, only Ajax Amsterdam and Utrecht have scored the maximum six points. Twente have four, while PSV who also drew their opening match, have two.

Champions AZ Alkmaar, 2-0 winners over Sparta Rotterdam on Friday, have three points.

Japanese international Keisuke Honda struck twice on Sunday to earn newcomers VVV-Venlo a 2-2 home draw against ADO Den Haag, who had taken an early two-goal lead but ended with nine men after red cards for Karim Soltani and Ricky van den Bergh.

In the day's other matches, Utrecht beat Willem II Tilburg 1-0, while there were goalless draws in the games between NAC Breda and Heracles Almelo and Vitesse Arnhem and Feyenoord.
