FT: ATALANTA 0-1 REAL MADRID
Well, Real Madrid found a way in the end and it took something really special from Ferland Mendy.
The left-back curled the ball into the corner of the net with his weaker right foot to win the tie.
Atalanta lasted 70, yes 70, minutes playing with ten men and unfortunately fell at the final hurdle.
Overall, it was a rather boring game, but that’s what happens when you have a team down to ten men, and another team who lack attacking options up front.
The only positive for Atalanta is that they’re still very much in this tie – they just have to go to Madrid and score goals.
Madrid look rather toothless up front, and had to rely on a wonder-strike from their left back.
All to play for!
