ATLETICO MADRID HANGING ON A BALANCE

Atletico Madrid are left hanging on a balance after their 1 – 1 draw with Bayern Munich in their fifth group A match.

Atletico had an early lead in the match courtesy of Joao Felix. They had several other chances which didn’t bear any fruits. Atletico’s lead came to an end after Bayern converted the penalty they were awarded in the 86th minute. Thomas Mueller fired in the shot that gave the visitors a point, making their total to 13 points which qualifies them to the round of 16.

Diego Simeone’s side are now on second position with 6 points but that does not guarantee them a spot in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League. They need at least a draw in their last group match with Salzburg.

Salzburg who are third on the table with 4 points after getting the better of Lokomotiv Moscow with a 1-3 away win in Russia. Salzburg need a win to proceed to the next stage of the Champions League. Otherwise their current position gives them a chance to play in the Europa League after the Champions league group stages.

Lokomotiv Moscow who are fourth on the table with 3 points, have a mathematical chance of playing in the Europa League. Their chances are dependent on the result of the match between Atletico and Salzburg which shall be played in the Red Bull Arena in Austria.
