Matchday LIVE: Atlético vs. PSV

PSV are in Madrid to prevent Atlético reaching the quarter finals!

It's a Champions League night at the Vicente Calderón

It's a Champions League night at the Vicente Calderón

Tonight’s the night! Join us for live coverage as PSV travel to Atlético for the second leg of the Champions League last 16 clash!

Atlético could only manage a 0-0 draw away at PSV last month. Los Rojiblancos need to score and do what they’ve been doing all season – avoid conceding – if they want to reach the quarter-finals. (Or we can chance penalties, but we don’t want that!)

You can prepare for the match by reading our Match Preview.

Starting XIs

Atlético: Oblak; Juanfran, Godín, Giménez, Filipe; Gabi, Augusto, Koke, Saúl; Carrasco, Griezmann

PSV Eindhoven: Zoet; Arias, Isimat-Mirin, Moreno, Bruma, Willems; Pröpper, Guardado, van Ginkel; Locadia, De Jong

  • Hell, I know it’s a bit early for this thread but I’m excited!

    Vamos Atleti!

  • colmiak

    oh man idk if like carrasco for vietto switch.. fond of vietto bc he knows when to pass and when to shoot. carrasco finds the net more often but is way too selfish/wasteful. ah!! can’t we have both? :p

  • Sanil

    Great save from Zoet!

  • Atleti looking a bit shaky!

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    We’re going to look shaky when playing with the midfield w have like this again

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    For the past three games we played with Carrasco in the mid or a part of a front three then today we come and go back to playing one guy up front

  • Scared of losing, rather than attacking to win. Needs to swap someone like Torres for Augusto or Saúl

  • Griezmann so unlucky!

  • Sanil

    I don’t like how much of the ball PSV has!

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    And Augusto is helping to add pressure on our defence. I would either take him or Gabi out for Torres or Vietto

  • Palantine

    Carrasco can be such a frustrating player to watch

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    I hope he makes a damn change so we can be more offensive at half time

  • Abdil Egriøz


  • AndersAT

    Tough match, but we started to turn on the heat in the end. I don’t think PSV can hold us of 45+15+15 min, but they look dangerous as well.
    I would put Vietto on for augusto, it would also give carrasco some more room to roam.

  • If we’re going to win the whole competition, we potentially shouldn’t be stuck at 0-0 after 3 halves of football

  • colmiak

    this match definitely needs vietto, his link-up play is severely undervalued but it is critical. creates chances/space and shots when appropiate

  • Get Torres on ASAP. Let Carrasco move around a bit.

    Torres on! Let’s start this match again!!

  • Wow, how has Filipe managed to get his head on that!

    Really nervy now!

  • Abdil Egriøz

    Almost got a heartattack

  • FT9

    Car rascal! Should have done better from that distance!!

  • thericeking

    griezmann shouting ‘saul! saul! saul!’ seems like call to arms

  • I’m so glad Torres is on. He looks really threatening!

  • pete

    inexperience of the youths is showing

  • Abdil Egriøz

    This is getting to intense to watch

  • SUPER nervous now

  • Carpetano

    We’re gonna lose….

    As much as I hate to admit it, PSV are much better than us 🙁

  • I hope this is reverse psychology!!

  • Abdil Egriøz

    Get out here bruh
    If there were soooo much better than us then we wouldn’t be heading to over time

  • Sanil

    I certainly can’t handle penalties!

  • Oh Lucas!! So close!

  • Eurgh me neither!!

  • Let’s have it from this free kick! Vamos Atleti!

  • Eurgh what an absolute waste

  • Abdil Egriøz

    It would have been great to have Diego Ribas or Jose Sosa to take those kind of freekicks. We lack someone to take freekicks at goal!

  • Another wasted attempt from Gabi

  • Abdil Egriøz

    It’s time..

  • Sanil

    I’m out. My old heart cant take penalties

  • Abdil Egriøz

    Even though it’s extremely nerve-racking it’s very exciting at the same time

  • Abdil Egriøz


  • Abdil Egriøz

    Im dying…

  • Abdil Egriøz

    Come on!!!

  • Abdil Egriøz


  • Sanil


  • GET IN! COME ONNNN!!!!!!

  • Carpetano

    Sure it did 🙂

  • colmiak


  • Oh my god, when Fernando Torres scored that penalty… I can’t even…

  • Carpetano

    FUCKING YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • I fucking love you Juanfran! And you Filipe! And Giménez penalty wasn’t bad either!

  • Abdil Egriøz

    When Sauls penalty went in..

  • I’m so relieved / happy / excited / stressed / tired

  • Chewie

    Fucking hell, it was terribly nerve-wrecking. And Oblak sucks at penalties. I would even prefer Moya instead of him. But the penalty takers were awesome, 8 out of 8 – that’s great.

  • Into the last 8 for the third year in a row!

  • AaX

    I JUST HAD A FEELING that we are going to choke and go to penalties. WTH NO MORE OF THESE Simeone ! Tonight GOD FAVOURED US.

  • nandes

    They came for the 0-0 draw and got it. We didn’t score but well, at least we tried until the very end unlike them who just sat back for the entire extra time…

    I feel like I need a whole week to recover

  • Patrick English

    Dont think Torres was fit for a full 90 minutes. Maybe Correa cause Vietto hasnt really showed up the last few matches. Agree with your basic point tho
