Atletico makes it to the UCL Quarter finals after a grueling PK shootout

March 15, 2016 By Oscar Rojas
This is the first time in the tournament's history in which a team makes it to the next stage without scoring one goal in both legs of the series.

After 210 minutes and sixteen shots from the spot, Atletico Madrid managed to eliminate some tough Dutch opposition. Diego Simeone's men made it into the tournament's history, becoming the first side ever to make it to the Champions League Quarter finals without scoring a goal in the previous round.

PSV Eindhoven opened up the shootout, and even though the odds were in their favor (63% of the teams taking the first penalty had made it to the next round), a shot to the crossbar by Luciano Narsingh sealed their fate against the ever-complicated Spanish team, who lacked the consistency and accuracy of old and took things to the last mile.

Atlético Madrid made it to the Quarter final stage of the tournament exactly the same way they did last year. Prior to last season's matchup against Real Madrid, Los Colchoneros eliminated Bayer Leverkusen after a heart-breaking shootout. Curiously enough, that game took place on March 17th, hinting that Simeone's men have some sort of lucky charm when it comes to deciding Champions League ties this way.

Get a glimpse at what fans and experts thought about this tight but interesting match.
