Atleti recall Augusto for PSV tie

Atletico Madrid have recalled Augusto Fernandez for Wednesday’s Champions League last-16 first leg at PSV after three weeks out.

The midfielder was stretchered off during Los Colchoneros’ 2-1 defeat at Barcelona on January 30 with a damaged medial ligament in his left knee and had been sidelined ever since, but he has been given the green light to feature in Diego Simeone’s latest squad.

Augusto’s return leaves Tiago Mendes, Yannick Carrasco and Thomas Partey as Atleti’s only absentees.

Atleti squad for PSV in full: Oblak, Moya; Juanfran, Gamez, Savic, Gimenez, Godin, Lucas, Filipe; Gabi, Saul, Koke, Kranevitter Oliver Torres, Correa, Vietto, Griezmann, Fernando Torres.
