As highlighted by a report in Marca, the Portuguese does not have good memories against the Austrian club – as he lost the chance to win the UEFA Youth League with Benfica against the club.
Felix has scored just once goal in six appearances for Diego Simeone’s side this season – in the 6-1 rout against Granada – and that may lead to concerns that he is failing to justify the club record €126m fee Atleti paid a year ago for his services.
Now it is said that this is his opportunity in the Champions League, having been rested against Real Betis this weekend – to really make his mark at the club.
Simeone’s side got their Champions League campaign off to a difficult start with a four-goal loss at Bayern Munich but will be confident they can progress through a group containing Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moscow.
