Atlético Madrid secures 3 points against RB Salzburg
Diego Simeone’s side suffered a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of the defending champions Bayern Munich last week,
but they started well against their Austrian opponents and went ahead through Marcos Llorente shortly before
the half-hour mark.
Salzburg – who drew with Lokomotiv Moscow in their opening game – stormed into a 2-1 lead, though, thanks to
goals either side of half-time from Dominik Szoboszlai and Mergim Berisha.
But Joao Felix had other ideas, quickly drawing Atletico level and then securing all three points five minutes from
time with a fine strike.
