Atlético Madrid won the first leg of the Champion's League semi-finals tonight in the Vicente Caldérón stadium. Simeone's team overcame Guardiola's Bayern 1-0.

The game started badly for Guardiola's men, with Saúl wonder goal in a style very similar to Maradona's in the 11th minute. The player, on whom Barça has preferential rights, turned out to be the indisputed star of the game.

 

 

Griezmann was close to making the second goal, but Neuer stopped the ball with his hand. The great danger of Bayern, Douglas Costa, wasn't lucky in front of the goal. Besides, the Bavarians asked for two penalties that weren't granted to them, one for a possible fist of Oblak on Vidal and another for this handball from Augusto:

In the second half, it remained 1-0 on the scoreboard. Oblak had to make a great save to stop Vidal's shot, just before Fernando Torres touched the post. Bayern also had a great chance that ended on the post: Alaba touched the crossbar in the 53rd minute. But the game anded on this 1-0 score that gives a slight advantage to the Colchoneros.
