Team News: Luuk de Jong back for PSV Eindhoven

Luuk de Jong is back in the starting lineup for PSV Eindhoven's Champions League last-16 second-leg meeting with Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon.

PSV Eindhoven have welcomed back top scorer Luuk de Jong for the trip to take on Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Dutch Eredivisie leaders were without their leading marksman through suspension for last month's first leg, which finished goalless.

Eindhoven will have to make do without their Uruguayan Under-21 international forward Gaston Pereiro, however, as he picked up a red card with 20 minutes remaining in the reverse fixture.

As far as Atletico are concerned, Diego Simeone has opted to go with just one man up top as both Fernando Torres and Luciano Vietto have been left on the bench.

That means a staring role for 24-goal striker Antoine Griezmann, although Atleti will be without the services of injured duo Tiago Mendes and Stefan Savic for this big showdown in the Spanish capital.

Atletico head into the match unbeaten in their last eight games, while opponents PSV have suffered just one defeat in their last 25.

Atletico Madrid: Oblak, Godin, Filipe Luis, Juanfran, Gimenez, Koke, Fernandez, Gabi, Saul Níguez, Griezmann, Carrasco
Subs: Moya, Gamez, Lucas Hernandez, Kranevitter, Correa, Torres, Vietto

PSV Eindhoven: Zoet, Isimat-Mirin, Moreno, Arias, Bruma, Propper, Guardado, van Ginkel, de Jong, Locadia
Subs: Pasveer, Brenet, Schaars, Hendrix, Narsingh, Lestienne, Jozefzoon
