The Dutch champions renew their rivalry with last season’s beaten finalists and the statistics point to a low scoring opening 45 minutes at the Philips Stadium. 

Atletico and PSV meet for the third time this year on Tuesday evening with Atletico having knocked their Dutch counterparts out of last season’s tournament back in February. Their last 16 clash was decided on penalties at the Vicente Calderon after 180 goalless minutes so the Dutch champions will be out to exact some kind of revenge on last season’s beaten finalists.

Despite an excellent record in the last three seasons in the competition it is curious to note that Atleti’s form away from home is not as impressive as one might think.

Indeed, Diego Simeone’s side have only won three of their last 11 away matches in the Champions League although they will be buoyed by their weekend result in La Liga which saw them claim their first victory of the campaign by winning 4-0 away to Celta Vigo.

PSV for their part were strong at home in last season’s competition, unbeaten in the four matches they contested at the Philips Stadium, while domestically they have started the current season well.

Head to Head Statistics

Atletico Madrid have dominated their previous games against PSV, they are unbeaten against the dutch team. Atletico have won 3 of their previous 4 meetings and drawn 1. Their last game ended in a penalty shootout which favoured the Spanish side after two legs of goalless draw.


Both teams are currently on a good form, and their games over the weekend ended a with a strong victory for both sides. Both teams defeated their opponents 0-4, the most interesting thing is that the victories were on the road.

However PSV’s form seem better, they have won 5 of their last 6 games and drawn 1. They have kept clean sheets in 5 of their last 6 games, and have scored at least 2 goals in 3 of their last 6 games.

Atletico Madrid haven’t played much games, but they are unbeaten in the games played so far this season.
