Simeone said,”In the last 16 tie against PSV Eindhoven last season the goals were very important indeed and not points. Now we have a situation in the group phase where it is all about points.

“We are now fully aware that PSV Eindhoven are a difficult opponent and that they play well on the counter attack and they can switch very quicky between defense and attack and they have a very good defense too. We must try to take the game to them and be dominant throughout the match.”
