Club suddenly became the only leader in Group B. Because Bayer Leverkusen also withdrew with a stunning victory: the Germans beat Atletico Madrid 2-0. In the absolute final phase, Andrech and Diaby took an interest in the goals. Witsel was in the starting lineup for visitors, and Carrasco came in about an hour.
Is the German victory good news for the club? The future will show that, but the result once again confirms that every team in Group B can be defeated.
Leverkusen – Atletico certainly didn’t fit in the history books. Before the end of the first half, the visitors unsuccessfully claimed a penalty kick after Tapsoba’s hand. Remarkably, the VAR technology prompted referee Michael Oliver to review the stage. Only the Englishman held his position.
Until the 84th minute, the match seemed to be heading towards a goalless draw. Alternative Frimpong turned everything upside down. At first he made a crucial pass to Robert Andreich and after 3 minutes the Dutchman served Moussa Diaby.
An even bigger blow to Atletico and the Belgians, which the club will receive on October 4 at Jan Breidel.
