Augusto Fernandez is in Atletico's squad to face PSV Eindhoven having suffered a ligament injury to his left knee against Barcelona at the end of January. Atletico travel to the Netherlands on Tuesday morning to face the reigning Dutch champions in the first leg of their last-16 leg of the Champions League and Augusto could play a part in the game.

Fernandez arrived at the club during the January transfer window from Celta Vigo and had solidified himself in Simeone's plans as a replacement for Tiago Mendes.

Since Augusto's injury, Cholo has opted for a more attacking midfield and forward line, opting for Yannick Ferreira Carrasco instead of a more defensive central midfielder along with Antoine Griezmann and a striker as a trident of attacking options in a 4-3-3 formation.

Carrasco on the other hand is still out with an ankle injury while every other aspect of the squad is as expected.

Atletico's squad consists of: Oblak, Moyá; Juanfran, Gámez, Godín, Lucas, Giménez, Savic, Filipe, Gabi, Kranevitter, Augusto, Koke, Saúl, Óliver; Griezmann, Vietto, Correa and Torres.
