Teams: PSV, Republic of Ireland
Atletico defend a corner with Godin's hand to knock the ball away from De Jong's head... nothing given
Atletico had a chance or two they would be disappointed they didn't finish a Gameiro chance in the box after Schwaab miss controlled the ball, Zoet was well off his line as Gameiro shot over. I also thought Greizmann was kept onside by Isimat for a goal he finished, but my stream was laggy/jumpy during the replay, whistled offside before he finished.
PSV also had a few headers they just couldn't direct away from Oblak. Pereiro with two free headers.
So much bad refereeing decisions ruined the game IMO. I honestly don't think any result would be unfair. 3rd place is the more likely where we would end up at the end of the group you would say before a game was played, this result lowers the odds of a 2nd place finish a lot. Won't be shocked by any result in the reverse fixture.
Hendrix I thought had a difficult time, Atletico's passing was too quick for him, Guaitan had the beating of him umpteen times. De Jong was dominant in the air which isn't surprising, but felt like De Jong was the only person capable of finishing his knock downs... Willems reminds me of Brenet's form last season, was poor/below par in the league but played okay/good in CL. Ramselaar was good when coming on, Propper wasn't great but wasn't bad either. Narsingh had good moments but perhaps just lacks that bit of quality, one of those footballers that if they were not quick they wouldn't be one.
PSV didn't do enough for in like the first 30 minutes of second half, Atletico were really controlling the game. The penalty miss before half time was really bad for PSV, and watching it again, the penalty looked better in the angle it was shown live, was an average penalty hit hard, great save all the same.
