Atletico Madrid knock out of the Champions League


Atletico Madrid eliminated the Champions League in dramatic circumstances after missing a penalty in extra time.

The La Liga team, who lost to Bayer Leverkusen, will now play in the Europa League, which they won in 2018.

Madrid was given hope in the 95th minute when VAR brought the referee to the pitchside monitor and gave a penalty for a handball in the area.

Yannick Carrasco went forward, but Lukas Hradecky blocked his shot.

Moussa Diaby and Callum Hudson-goals Odoi’s allowed Diego Simeone’s team to return from a two-goal deficit.

Madrid was kept in the game by Carrasco and the replacement Rodrigo de Paul, but eventually, a draw was insufficient for them to go beyond the group round.
