The game was intensely contested from the first whistle, with the combination of heavy rain and two teams insistent on allowing the other very little space proving a potent recipe.
Atletico took the lead in the 26th minute. A quick break ended with Angel Correa opening his body, beating his man and feeding Yannick Carrasco, who finished superbly to beat Claudio Bravo.
