Tuesday, September 13, at 21:45, PSV receives the visit of Atletico Madrid in a match of the Group D of the UEFA Champions League.
PSV dominated the national championship as demonstrated late last week when the Eredivisie champions was won 4-0 away at Nijmegen is the second consecutive travel they win by the same score. The home is a little more restrained, gaining 4 points out of 6 possible with a single goal. Moreover, PSV participated in the last edition of the UEFA Champions League, managed to qualify in optimal, after serving No. 2 in the group which did part, managed to collect 10 points, but nine of them came after dueling at home.
Atletico Madrid began timidly in La Liga this season after two consecutive draws at the weekend, came the first success. Diego Simeone’s students have won 4-0 away from Vigo, with Celta, coming to the ramp Antoine Griezmann, who scored a double. The other two were successful achievements of Madrid Korea and Koke all goals coming after 50 minutes Atletico Madrid made final edition of the 2015/2016 UCL being defeated city rival after penalty shoot 11 m.
PSV (4-3-3): Zoet – Arias – ISIM – Moreno – Willems – Guardado – Propper – Hendrix – Pereiro – Jong – Narsingh
Atletico Madrid (4-4-2): Oblak – Juanfran – Savic – Godin – Luis – Nigua – Gabi – Koke – Carrasco – Gameiro – Griezmann
It’s a tough game for the home team, two by meeting directly with half a year ago, when they fought for a place in the quarterfinals of the UCL. After two similar results, 0-0 Griezmann and colleagues took the hits from 11 m to switch PSV. The two coaches know quite well, although football schools come from totally different but I think this does nothing but cancel each other, both being satisfied with a draw.
