Atlético Madrid are ready to host PSV Eindhoven in the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie. The Calderon will be rocking as the fans hope to see their team come out on top. PSV held Atlético to a scoreless draw in the first leg in Holland, but now that the tie is back in Spain, we've got a whole new ballgame.

Both Diego Simeone and Phillip Cocu have named lineups about as strong as their teams can muster at the moment to try to get the job done, but it's hard to look past Atléti's fearsome 11. The front line of Antoine Griezmann, Yannick Ferreira Carrasco and Koke, with Saúl Niguez playing provider, will be tough for PSV to stop. In response, the Dutchmen are rolling out a quick and athletic 3-5-2 to help them cope with Atlético's fearsome speed while still leaving them capable on the counter attack.

This match is going to be fun.

Atlético Madrid starting XI (4-2-3-1): Jan Oblak; Juanfran, Juan Giménez, Diego Godín, Filipe Luis; Gabi, Augusto Fernandez; Koke, Saúl Niguez, Yannick Ferreira Carrasco, Antoine Griezmann

PSV Eindhoven starting XI (3-5-2): Jeroen Zoet; Nicolas Isimat-Mirin, Hector Moreno, Jeffrey Bruma, Santiago Arias, Davy Pröpper, Andres Guardado, Marco van Ginkel, Jetro Willems; Luuk de Jong, Jurgen Locadia
