PSV Eindhoven finished the job in style against SV Zulte Waregem, following up last week's 2-0 first-leg win with a 3-0 victory in Brussels to reach the UEFA Champions League play-offs.
After a lively first half, Zulte Waregem saw their mission become virtually impossible in the 56th minute when Steve Colpaert was sent off for handball and Tim Matavž converted the ensuing penalty. It was PSV's first goal on Belgian soil in European competition and more soon followed, Zakaria Bakkali adding a lovely volley before Bruno Godeau slid a third past his own keeper.
Perhaps things might have been different for Francky Dury's hosts had Mbaye Leye's early effort not been blocked on the goal line. Instead PSV soaked up the early pressure and had chances of their own before the break. Memphis Depay missed an open goal after goalkeeper Sammy Bossut had denied Matavž, and Bossut again frustrated the striker on the cusp of half-time.
The visitors stepped up a gear in the second period, and Depay forced Bossut into another save before the deadlock was broken from the spot. Colpaert was given a straight red card after stopping a Depay shot with a goal-line handball, and Matavž made no mistake. Zulte Waregem struggled from then on. Bakkali's first-time angled volley from Depay's left-wing cross ended any doubt about the outcome on 73 minutes, and Philip Cocu's side had a third goal to celebrate in the 90th minute when Godeau found his own net when trying to keep at bay an effevescent Adam Maher.
