Spanish Football Champions League

Atletico de Madrid defeated 1 - 0 Bayern Munich in their Group game. Deserved victory for At. Madrid which created more opportunities although they failed to convert into more goals. They had numerous shots at goal, Fernando Torres hit the post & Griezmann missed a penalty in the 83rd min.

The only goal of the match, & the winner, came in the 35th min when Yannick Carrasco fired home to beat Bayern goalkeeper Neuer.

Bayern had their chances but At. Madrid goalkeeper Oblak was solid & alert, while defenders Savic & Godin were outstanding. Great overall teamwork from the Spanish team with a perfect tactical set up that did not allow the Germans space or time to breathe.

Important victory for Atletico & a psychological table fist smashing gesture that injects moral & confidence for the rest of the Group games. 


Champions League

Borussia Monchangladbach lost 1 - 2 to FC Barcelona in their Group encounter. The Germans got ahead first in the 34th min through Hazard & had the Spaniards on the back foot. But the individual talents of Barça came to the surface & they managed to pull the team back together. Without the magic of Messi , Barça had to work harder to create their goal chances.

The goals however came in the 63rd min when Arda Turan equalized, & the winner came in the 73rd min through defender Gerard Pique.


Good play by the Germans, but Barça managed to turn things around.
