You can now enjoy the best team of the time Simeone or start as a favorite in La Liga, which at Athletics he will have to suffer a lot to defeat the group of death. Especially if he does not improve his proposal, which did not bother the disciplined Port. Portuguese painting, more modest on paper than Milan and Liverpool, was about to win Madrid. The wood prevented it and a goal refused with bare hands more than questionable. At the end, 0-0, that seen what is seen is not a bad result for the mattresses.

Match played at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium corresponding to Matchday 1 of the 2021-2022 Champions League.
The meeting also led to the reissue of Antoine Griezmann in the Metropolitan. Received equally between whistles and applause, the truth is that the Frenchman has improved his team. He jumped onto the field at 56 ′ and every time he intervened he created danger. Attended webbing on the clearest occasion of Atleti and forced an eviction in the shed which Suarez he almost transformed from a direct free kick into the winning goal of the rojiblanco.
A shot on goal in the first half
The appearance of Gaul was long overdue. Initially, the Cholo he opted for Joao Felix couple of Suarez, untouchable. Also seated webbing, in great shape, to give access to Lemar, who is having the best time since arriving in Madrid. Such is the wealth of resources of this Atleti, which has strengthened the midfield with Kondogbia near Boil, from a Llorente he had to cover the way instead of the impoverished Trippier.
In any case, no one doubted that the Port I was going to present a battle. Conceiçao He has proven in Europe for years that he has forged a team of authors. A solid block that costs horrors to bite into and that is capable of surprising anyone, as happened last year at the you. A cachet that has earned him comparisons with his Athletics and that augured for a dense duel, of maximum equality. Aware that the two coaches, former teammates of the Latium, that the slightest mistake could be fatal.
Indeed, in the first act a kick was recorded between the three sticks. Work of Suarez, move from Lemar, at the sixth minute. Then the trench. The Port went to more, with a Uribe omnipresent at the controls, and found an imbalance in the wings, with Luis Diaz and crown. Although the clearest opportunity, a counter that crashed Zaïdu in order to cloud, aborted her from the ground Kondogbia. Based on winning duels, the midfielder led the Athletics to advance meters, but without threatening the Portuguese fortress.
Griezmann enters the scene
After the break, Porto cornered the rojiblanco team and were able to take the lead in a cross from otavio which crashed into the post. Fear has awakened Simeone. The technician decided to Griezmann, webbing and I gave it. The improvement was immediate, a boost of energy encouraged by the gestures of the stands. At once, Griezmann activated webbing, which forced the paradón of Diogo Costa.
The reaction of Conceiçao, who pulled out a striker to strengthen the midfielder with Oliveira. The red and white effervescence faded. The Port He came back yards ahead and was about to find a price. I gave it took a bad pass back, halfway between cloud and Kondogbia, and Tademi introduced the rebound into the goal. Goal canceled because, according to the referee, the Iranian touched the ball with his hand.
But the game still had one last script twist on the left. In the shed, the Port lost an absurd bullet in the spinal cord and Griezmann He walked over to the area. prevented it Mbemba, who was kicked out for it. Suarez, who tiptoed through the game, pulled out a shoe that almost didn’t find the team. In the end, the 0-0 stuck and the feeling that the Aléti will need to improve to pass the group stage.
