Bayer Leverkusen – Atletico Madrid 2: 0: Late double strike! Important win for the Werkself

Bayer Leverkusen landed the hoped-for relief thanks to a late brace and gave the coach Gerardo Seoane, who was under pressure, some breathing room with their first win in the Champions League. The Werkself beat top Spanish club Atletico Madrid 2-0 (0-0) on the second matchday of the premier class with goals from Robert Andrich (84′) and Moussa Diaby (87′) and recovered from the surprising opening defeat in Bruges (0-0). :1). In the ninth competitive game this season, it was only the second win for Bayer.

“In this phase it’s just good. I’m extremely proud of the team and the performance,” said defender Jonathan Tah DAZN.

Leverkusen quickly set offensive accents. Adam Hlozek didn’t get any pressure on a header after a nice run from Piero Hincapie, seconds later Andrich shot over the goal (7′). Bayer had more game shares. Against an Atletico defensive well sorted by the eccentric coach Diego Simeone, however, there were initially no further possibilities.

On the other hand, Leverkusen were lucky when Edmond Tapsoba got hold of the ball from a cross. After studying the video for a long time, the English referee Michael Oliver stuck to his original decision and decided against a penalty. In the next attack, Kerem Demirbay narrowly missed a long-range shot (26′).

Leverkusen’s top scorer Patrik Schick initially had no access to the game. The Czech was repeatedly sought from deep but often lost the ball early. Captain and goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky, who blundered badly in Brugge last week, easily saved the only shot on his goal of the first half by Joao Felix ( 37.). Atletico’s keeper Ivo Grbic saved against Moussa Diaby in the follow-up (45′).
