Juanfran's penalty gave Atletico Madrid a dramatic shoot-out victory over PSV after the sides drew 0-0 in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
Following a goalless first leg in Holland last month, the initial 90 minutes at the Vicente Calderon also passed without either keeper being beaten.
Although the hosts dominated for much of the match, the closest they came was when Fernando Torres' effort was touched on to the post and after another half-hour extra-time stalemate, ultimately spot-kicks were required.
PSV went first and scored each of their first seven efforts but Luciano Narsingh missed their eighth and that allowed Juanfran to send Atletico through with an 8-7 success.
PSV manager Philip Cocu had unashamedly said before kick-off he would happily progress via penalties and although his team started brightly, they were soon on the back foot and hanging on.
Antoine Greizmann and Yannick Carrasco both had decent chances before the former drew a tremendous reaction save from visiting goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet.
PSV's forays upfield were few and far between in the first half but Luuk de Jong was almost in the perfect place to poke in after Jan Oblak only got a hand to Chelsea loanee Marco van Ginkel's cross.
Normal service soon resumed and although Zoet produced another strong stop from Greizmann, the striker had strayed into an offside position and his header would not have counted.
The impressive Saul Niguez and Carrasco had chances stopped before the break while Jose Giminez headed wide after it.
Almost out of nothing, PSV hit the woodwork as Jurgen Locadia shot goalwards and he was only denied by a thrusting arm from Oblak.
In response, Atletico increased the pressure further but despite a glut of openings, Filipe Luis, substitute Torres and Koke all failed to score.
That meant extra-time beckoned and although the Spaniards continued to dictate, they lacked a cutting edge and tiring PSV did just enough to force penalties.
The first 14 kicks - a variety of confidently-taken and fortuitous attempts from 12 yards - were all converted.
Narsingh, however, was too casual and leaned back enough to hit the face of the bar just moments after he had surprisingly come on for the Eredivisie side's leading scorer De Jong.
That left Juanfran with the opportunity to secure Atletico's first knockout win over a Dutch side and he emphatically found the net to send Diego Simeone's team into Friday's last-eight draw.
