After the break, more Atlético had to come. And the Spaniards did it boldly. Chases City and quickly seeks an attack on his possession, driven by Wanda Metropolitano. Joao Felix had a good try after 28 minutes, coming in on a fine move from the left, but the ball went wide. Antoinne Griezmann did attempt a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball into the away fans.

Atlético suddenly showed how he can play, the difference from a week ago was big. Although not all went well, the score and will to win were clear. Atlético’s attack seemed more dangerous than it really was. The biggest threat was two blows from Rodrigo De Paul (not between posts).

Manchester City, where Nathan Ake played for another twenty minutes, failed to do anything in the second half. Atlético continued to attack, which over time became more and more like a desperate attack. Simeone saw most attack opportunities on the wings.
