Playing weakened, Atalanta defended themselves most of the game against losing to Real, but lost a goal just before the end. Manchester City will beat Borussi Moenchengladbach 2-0.
It was a symbolic evening in the Champions League. Almost exactly a year ago, Atalanta smashed Valencia 4-1, which allowed her to be promoted to Wierfinau, but the match played in Milan at that time was considered a biological bomb that accelerated the development of the coronavirus epidemic.
On Wednesday, fans could not enter the stadium in Bergamo, but despite painful pandemic experiences and appeals from local authorities gathered in large numbers in front of the facility to cheer their players. “Cafeteros + Grappa, let’s get them drunk!” – says one of the banners, referring to the name of the Italian alcoholic drink and the nickname of the Colombian national team, in which two Atalanta attackers Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata play.
After half an hour of hangover, the hosts could have had. First, a red card was sent to Remo Freuler in an attempt to stop Ferland Mendy coming to a clean position. Zapata later had to leave the field due to an injury. But Atalanta’s footballers did not intend to complain about the headache, but rolled up their sleeves and did their best to knock Real Madrid off the beat and not lose a goal. It was going to the 86th minute when Mendy decided to strike from outside the penalty area and he did it precisely enough not to give the goalkeeper a chance.
Manchester City has also moved closer to the promotion. Pep Guardiola’s team defeated Borussia Moenchengladbach at home (in this case on neutral terrain in Budapest), this is her 19th victory in a row and there is no indication that this series would end quickly. The protagonist of the evening at Puskas Arena was Bernardo Silva. It will score 1: 0 and assist for Gabriel Jesus.
