In the quarter-finals of the Champions League, Manchester City won (1-0) at home against Atlético de Madrid, thanks to a goal from Kevin De Bruyne (70th minute).
The Belgian was perfectly served by Phil Foden to break the deadlock for the Citizens.
Those who expected a closed and padlocked match were not disappointed, especially in the first period!
Because the modular 3-5-2 in a hyper-defensive 5-4-1 of Atlético de Madrid, with almost systematically eleven players behind the ball (whether they have possession, which was of course quite rare, or not ), then completely extinguished the ambitious, but lacking acceleration, 4-3-3 of Manchester City.
Thus, we were just able to pick up an attempt by De Bruyne (countered by Vrsjalko, 12th).
Atletico failed to register a single shot in the game as City managed fifteen.
