The Dutch squad is ready for some revenge, as Atletico was the team that eliminated PSV from the 2015-16 Champions League tournament in February, per Goal.com. It came down to penalties between these two evenly matched squads, with Atletico walking away as the victor. They would eventually lose to Real Madrid in the finals, but that was then. This is now, and both teams are ready to start this new Champions League season on the right foot.
PSV might have the home field advantage going into this game, as Atletico has only won three of their last 11 away matches in the Champion League. They’re coming off a huge win in La Liga, going 4-0 over Celta Vigo. Yet, with PSV going unbeaten at home during the Champions League, that momentum might not be enough.
That hasn’t discouraged Diego Simeone, 46. The Atletico manager things that his squad can kick off the Group D campaign with a win. “Almost everyone is fit and sharp, including the players on the bench,” he said ahead of the game. “We have a plan that we can adapt if necessary during the game. We are ready for a busy period of matches and we will do everything we can.”
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Will Atletico achieve another victory over PSV, or with Eindhoven end all doubt about their skills by getting revenge on their Spanish rivals?
