first half

After the start of the game, Leverkusen performed well in the face of Atletico Madrid, frequently using long passes to dash and Odoi’s impact on the left to create threats. Only 7 minutes into the game, Demirbay’s long pass from the backcourt almost broke through Atletico’s defense. After the attack failed, Odoi cut into the left side of the penalty area and made a pass. Andrich missed a header from close range. In the 19th minute, Hrogrek sent a long pass for Schick from the midfield, but the Czechs failed to seize the opportunity one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

In the 26th minute, Leverkusen launched a series of offensives against Atletico Madrid, but first Demirbay’s long-range shot missed the goal, and then Schick’s two goals were successfully blocked by the opponent.

At the same time, Atlético de Madrid began to use set-piece opportunities to find opportunities: in the 22nd minute, Molina passed the ball into the penalty area causing tapsoba handball, but the referee did not award a penalty. Felipe then headed the ferry, and Hermoso stabbed in front of the goal and failed to hit. In the 33rd minute, Hermoso accurately found Felipe with a cross from the left, but the latter kicked the ball high under the double-team of Tapsoba and Hradecky.

second half

As soon as the second half of the game started, Leverkusen had an excellent opportunity to break the deadlock on the field. Unexpectedly, both Schick and Hlozek were rejected by the goal post. In the 48th minute, Tapsoba intercepted Felipe’s pass and launched a counterattack. As a result, Schick’s strong shot hit the crossbar and bounced back to the penalty area. Hlozek’s header shot was rejected by the post. . In less than 1 minute, Moussa Diaby made an oblique pass to the penalty area from a 45-degree angle from the right side of the frontcourt, and Gerbić successfully resolved the header relay between Hlozek and Demirbay.

In the 68th minute of the game, Atletico Madrid completed the only threatening shot in the second half by De Paul, but Leverkusen kept the goal under the protection of Hradecky. 1 minute later, Hermoso made a mistake to make a clearance and Schick faced the goal, but unfortunately the Czech failed to complete the shot under the joint interference of Llorente and Felipe. In the 72nd minute, Demirbay took a corner kick from the left, and Kossounou used his body to block the ball outside the column.

It was not until the 84th minute that Leverkusen finally scored: Frimpong, who came off the bench, turned around to get rid of Hermoso and sent a cross. Andrich followed up and scored from the middle. In the 87th minute, Odoi got rid of Hermoso in the backcourt and chose to break through the ball. Frimpong sent a cross from the right side of the penalty area to assist Moussa Diaby to score, extending the score for Leverkusen 2-0.

At the end of the game, Leverkusen beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 at home.
