Atletico eye place in CL quarters
Atletico Madrid will be looking to continue the form they showed at home to Deportivo la Coruna in La Liga on Saturday when they try to book a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League football on Tuesday.
Diego Simeone’s side are favourites to qualify for the last eight after a 0-0 draw away to PSV Eindhoven. However, their failure to score an away goal does leave them open to the threat their rivals could progress on the away goals rule. Atletico had no problem finding a way past Deportivo at the weekend with a performance which highlighted the strengths in their play.
With a high line of pressure, Atletico stopped their rivals from creating anything and then took their chances with clinical precision, using the pace and quick thinking of forwards Antoine Griezmann and the running of Saul Niguez from deep to win 3-0.
