Atletico Madrid would have one final chance to qualify for the Champions League group stages after they were unable to win against Bayern Munich. Here is the analysis of Atletico Madrid’s encounter with Bayern Munich.
Despite Bayern Munich resting key players for the clash against Atletico, the Spanish side was still unable to pick up a victory against Bayern as Thomas Muller Equalized via a penalty against them. Hansi Flick had decided to rest key players like Manuel Neuer and Robert Lewandowski, keeping Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry on the bench.
Atletico started strongly and was the better side as they carved out opportunities through Joao Felix, who has been in brilliant form this season. Felix kept occupying pocket of spaces in the Bayern defense and they could not just get a hold of him. It was another excellent night for the Portuguese international. Making runs into space, carving out chances, finishing plays, he had all of it and perhaps should have scored more.
Atletico was left to regret their missed chances as they could have even scored via a Hermoso header after the Bayern penalty. Atletico now has their work cut out for them against Salzburg if they are to qualify for the knock-out stages.
