A thrilling match to start the first Champions League semi-final between Real Madrid and Atlético. The white team got ahead soon with Ronaldo's goal, but our players never lost their composure. Gameiro had the first red and white chance but Keylor prevented his play by coming out of his goal. The response was for Benzema with an intervention by Oblak and Godín shot a high a pass by Griezmann in a foul.
After the break, the match was more evenly-matched but without clear chances. The substitution in our team did not have the expected result and in the final stretch of the fixture, Ronaldo scored two more goals that complicate the knockout round, although the Calderón will have the last word.
