Atletico’s Last-16 qualification in danger after AC Milan defeat

0

Atletico Madrid’s chances of reaching the Champions League Last 16 were dealt a hammer blow on Wednesday after a 0-1 defeat by AC Milan left them needing to win at Porto in their final game in Group B.

A scrappy contest at the Wanda Metropolitano looked set to end goalless until Milan substitute Junior Messias headed home a dramatic winner in the 87th minute to leave Atletico staring down the barrel of an early exit.  Messias’ goal not only means Atleti will need a victory instead of a draw in Porto on December 7 but it also brings Milan back to life. 

Atletico Madrid are level on points with Milan but beneath them on goal difference.  Asked if this is one of the most challenging moments of his tenure at Atletico, Diego Simeone said: “We have always had challenges. The team will compete well for sure in the last game.”
