Atlético Madrid are through to the quarter finals after beating PSV Eindhoven in the penalty shoot out! Despite the scoreline this was a vibrant match, Zoet making a couple of vital saves from Griezmann before the break, and Van Ginkel going close a couple of times for Cocu’s side in reply. Soon after the restart Oblak had to push a shot from Locadia on to the post, and Zoet had to keep out Augusto Fernández and Filipe Luis. The introduction of Fernando Torres livened things up, the veteran striker chipping a shot over the top and then seeing Zoet push another effort on to the bar. With scores level though the tie went in to extra time and then penalties, and after fourteen in a row went in, Narsingh fired his kick against the bar, and Juanfran converted the next one to take Simeone’s team through. Not that this was unusual though, as Atleti qualified on penalties against Bayer Leverkusen at this stage of the competition last season as well!
