UCL: Athletico Madrid is out

Coming into the game as underdogs, little was expected from the German team as they were facing a strong Spanish opposition who already knocked the current Champions League holders out of the competition.

A goalless first half was followed by an exciting second half as Dani Olmo headed in to give RB Leipzig the lead in the 50th minute. Before a tactical substitution from Athletico Madrid changed the game’s direction as wonderkid Joao Felix steps up to score a penalty to put the teams level.

Step up Tyler Adams to score from a deflected shot to put the tie to bed and move Leipzig to the next round of the competition. Having sold Timo Werner who happened to be their talisman to Chelsea, many would give credits to the team as they have proved one person doesn’t run a team.
