PSV will train on the pitch on Monday night and the game will go ahead as planned on Tuesday.
A UEFA statement read: “The pitch assessment conducted today was not a UEFA one, but a standard type of visit and quality measurement that the Wembley Stadium management does before every match. “We can confirm that the media activities planned for today, as well as the game itself, will take place as scheduled.”
