FT Review⚽: Atletico Madrid 0⃣-0⃣ PSV (ATM wins 8-7 on penalties)

  |   Football

PSV got off to a nervy😰 start as they nearly gifted ATM the opener but they quickly organized💪🏻 to avert the disaster. ATM began to come out of their shell but one scary😳 counter attack from the visitors sent them right back. The hosts reverted back to their first half tactics of building through the middle which was surprising🙄 since all their best chances came from the flanks. The contest was so evenly matched that with 🔟 minutes to go, there was still no telling who would nick the results. PSV's goalkeeper was outstanding🙌🏻 with his world class saves and distribution. Torres⭐ was terrific since his introduction and gave the PSV back line a lot to think about. There wasn't anything to separate the 2⃣ sides so the game entered extra time. Both sides were very cautious👌🏻 in extra time and that rendered the extra half hour lifeless. The penalty shootout was nerve racking but ATM held their nerves and saw it out 8⃣-7⃣ on penalties. At 7⃣-7⃣, Luciano Narsingh missed his penalty for PSV and Juanfran scored the decisive penalty as the Rojiblancos book their place in the quarter-finals.
