The midfielder, who suffered a partial tear in the interior ligament of his left knee in January, is on Diego Simeone's 19-man list for the Champions League last-16 first leg.


Augusto Fernández has been included in the Atlético Madrid squad for their Champions League clash with PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday, three weeks after suffering a knee ligament injury in Los Rojiblancos' league defeat at Barcelona.

Having been given the all-clear by Atlético's medical staff, the former Celta Vigo midfielder is back in first-team contention well ahead of schedule, with his recovery time initially estimated at a month and half.

And the Argentinian's return to fitness was in evidence during Atleti training in Madrid on Monday, as Diego Simeone's men continued their preparations for their last-16 first leg against the Dutch champions.

Los Colchoneros will travel to the Netherlands on Tuesday morning ahead of the encounter at the Philips Stadion.

Atlético's squad to face PSV is: Oblak, Moyá; Juanfran, Gámez, Godín, Lucas, Giménez, Savic, Filipe, Gabi, Kranevitter, Augusto, Koke, Saúl, Óliver; Griezmann, Vietto, Correa and Torres.
