Lewandowski puts ahead Bayern with a stunning free kick

Atletico Madrid made a brisk start. Attacking consistently and looking to score their first goal. It looked all even and both teams looked vulnerable in defence.

Many chances, many misses

In the second half there was an excellent chance for Bayern. Through Douglas Costa, who didn’t make it count. Both teams created many chances for them self but weren’t able to convert it. This meant, the game ended at 1-0 victory to the german giants. However Atletico still topped the group with 15 points.

How things stand?
