Diego Simeone expects the Atletico Madrid supporters to make Vicente Calderon a febrile atmosphere for the visit of PSV Eindhoven.

PSV visit Atletico with their Champions League Round of 16 tie goalless after the first leg, but Cholo disagreed with the suggestion keeping a clean sheet is the most important thing.

“The most important thing is to score a goal more than the opponent,” he countered, AS reports.

“I expect Antoine Griezmann to continue to respond to what the team asks. I’m convinced the team makes you better. If everyone responds to their level, the team is powerful.

“The stadium itself, before major events, responds in the best way. I hope for a great response from the team. [The fans] will be important.

“PSV’s best feature is the counter-attack. They work well in the spaces, they work well at dead balls.

“We’re different as teams, although our numbers are close. I imagine an important game, with different systems. It will be a good match.”
