Atletico Madrid needed penalties to see off PSV and book their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after a goalless stalemate at the Vicente Calderon on Tuesday, with Luciano Narsingh’s unfortunate miss from 12 yards the difference.
Jeroen Zoet and Jan Oblak came close to stopping a spot-kick on more than one occasion in a thrilling shoot-out, but Narsingh’s attempt against the crossbar eventually paved the way for Atletico to triumph 8-7.
Elsewhere, Manchester City reached the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time after a goalless draw with Dynamo Kyiv, but were left to count the cost of injuries to captain Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi.
Having won the first leg 3-1 in Kiev, City were overwhelming favourites to progress and completed the job at the Etihad Stadium in a low-key return encounter.
Atletico Madrid 0-0 PSV
