Like before, the defence of Atletico Madrid was simply awesome and very effective. Especially, in the last summer transfer window, they bought English defender Trippier who was amazing against Real Madrid. Failing to break the opponent’s defence, the German star Kroos made some long shots but still, could not escape the Atletico goalkeeper Oblak. Both times, he stopped the shots in exchange for the corner. Also, Atletico young star Joao Felix made a long shot but could not change the scoreline.
