World champion Mario Götze has kept PSV Eindhoven at the top of the Dutch honor division with his first goal of the season.
The former Dortmund and Munich Bundesliga star scored the winning goal to make it 1-0 (1-0) at FC Groningen. This means that coach Roger Schmidt’s team will go into the top game next Sunday against record-breaking Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam. Eindhoven has one point more than Ajax.
Götze, who has been under contract in Eindhoven since 2020, scored the goal in the tenth minute. His German compatriot Philipp Max came on in added time.
