Atletico Madrid are on course to finish first in Champions League Group D.

At the time of writing, the Spanish side lead PSV Eindhoven by two goals to nil and three points will be enough to secure top spot ahead of Bayern Munich.

Diego Simeone’s team haven’t been at their best in La Liga but they’ve won each of their games in Europe and will be a challenge to whichever team they take on in the round-of-16.

Kevin Gameiro opened the scoring for Atleti in the second half with his first Champions League goal for the club.

Simeone will hope the Frenchman is the final piece of the puzzle. Madrid were beaten finalists in 2014 and 2016 and his goals could be what what they need.

His arrival from Sevilla in the summer added yet more talent to a team that includes Antoine Griezmann, who added the second, Koke, Saul Niguez, Diego Godin and Jan Oblak.

Carrasco's skill vs PSV

Another player who deserves mentioning in that group is Yannick Carrasco, who scored a brilliant hat-trick last month against Granada.

The Belgian isn’t known for his goals - although Simeone will never complain when he’s on the scoresheet - and it’s just as well that he’s really good at creating chances and causing havoc.

In the first half at the Vicente Calderon, he produced an sublime piece of skill to put Santiago Arias on his backside before sending in a cross.

As is always the case when a defender gets humiliated by a quality piece of skill, Twitter went nuts:
