Football prediction Atletico missed the experimental Bayern
The teams of Atletico Madrid and Bayern (Munich) ended in a draw 1:1 at Wanda Metropolitano in a match of the fifth round of Group A in the Champions League. Joao Felix (26 `) scored for the hosts, and Thomas Muller (86 `) scored from a penalty for the guests. The series of the Bavarians from 15 consecutive victories in the tournament by upcoming football events was interrupted, but at the same time they equaled the record series of Manchester United of 16 away games in the Champions League without a loss, recording 12 wins and 4 draws in them.
Diego Simeone had made only two changes in his squad after the 1-0 victory over Valencia. They were associated with the appearance of Felix and Yannick Ferreira-Carasco in place of Renan Lodi and Toma Lomar. The young Portuguese`s partner in attack was Angel Korea. Hansi Flick had approached in a completely different way - only captain David Alaba, for whom this was a No400 match for the club, and Luca Hernandez had remained starters after the 3:1 victory over Stuttgart. It is noteworthy that 17-year-old Jamal Musiala and Bright Arey-Mbie started from the first minute. At the door was Alexander Newbel, and in attack - Leroy Sane, Eric Maxim Chupo-Motting and Douglas Costa.
In the seventh minute, Korea broke into the penalty area, but his shot was blocked and so Newbel managed to catch the ball. In the tenth shot, Koke walked past the door. In the 22nd, after a cross from a corner, Jose Jimenez shot with his head inaccurately. Shortly afterwards, a long shot by Carasco also went out. In the 26th, Marcos Llorente from the outline passed the ball to Felix, who from close range sent it to the near corner of Newbel for 1:0. In the 31st Musiala overcame Mario Hermoso and Koke, but his subsequent shot ended up outside the door. In the 38th, a dangerous shot by Llorente flew over the door.
In the 51st minute after a corner, Hernandez shot with his head, but the ball went over the door. In the 58th Felix aimed at the crossbar, but an ambush was ruled anyway. A minute later, a blow from Chupo-Moting failed to hinder Jan Oblak. As it seemed that the hosts would be able to keep their lead, in the 85th minute the reserve Felipe fouled the substitute Thomas Mueller. The referee pointed to the white dot and the striker scored the penalty with his own hand. In the 89th minute Hermoso could still score a winning goal, but his header missed the goal and so the tie was maintained.
The already clear winner in the group Bayern collected 13 points in its assets, while the second Atletico has 6 points and missed a golden chance to qualify for the eliminations of the tournament. Next week there will be a clash in Austria with the third RB Salzburg, in which the second eighth finalist from Group A will be determined. The last Lokomotiv (Moscow) has a chance only to participate in the Europa League in the spring, if at the same time it manages to beat Bayern.
