Two replays of last year’s knockout round games between PSV Eindhoven and Atletico Madrid are scheduled to take place in Group D of this year’s Champions League. The Dutch side was very close to creating a huge upset last year when they were only defeated on penalties by the team that went all the way to the final. This time, they know they need points against Atletico if they want to see spring in the Champion’s League – Bayern still looks like a tougher opponent.
PSV Eindhoven vs Atletico Madrid
Talking about PSV’s domestic form is practically pointless. The Dutch league has proven to be just a more elaborate training ground for the Eindhoven-based team in recent years, and their true tests always took place in European competitions.
They haven’t lost lots of their star players since last season and thus can look forward with optimism to playing some great clubs like Atletico and Bayern this time around. With a couple of points from these games, they might hope to catch second place in the group.
On the other hand, Atletico really doesn’t need any introduction after their recent seasons. They went from just being “one of the other teams in Madrid” to competing for domestic and continental honors in each season.
Griezmann is still there, Koke is still there, all their stars are still there – as well as coach Simeone. After losing finals two times in the last three years, the Spanish giants want to go all the way this year. They might even do it if they manage to avoid Real.
