Although with greater possession of the ball during the first half, Barcelona scared little Oblak. In contrast, Atletico Madrid, with a defensive stance, bet on counterattacks and opportunities did not open the scoring due to the brilliant display of Ter Stegen.
On the Catalan side, only Messi brought a sigh of good football. In an individual move full of the Argentine player’s magic, the striker broke through the mattress defense and only failed to score a beautiful goal because Oblak was also inspired.
In the second half, the game was more evenly distributed, but with more fouls and less real chances of goal. Coach Diego Simeone launched João Félix in the 67th minute, but the Portuguese striker did little in the game. The Portuguese Trincão, from Barcelona, never arrived.
