Today’s match

Atletico Madrid 3, Porto 1: This game has it all. With four goals and three red cards, everything stopped in the balance until the 90th minute. Atleti needed to win and took the lead with a rebound for good luck Antoine Griezmann in the 56th minute:

But thanks to Milan’s loss to Liverpool, Porto needed a draw to top Atleti and move up to second in the group. While their chances have always been tough against a team focused on defence, it was expected to get easier as Atleti were exhausted in defense and even had to put defensive midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia at the center of the defence. With a distant goal, Porto was reinforced when Yannick Carrasco was indifferent and aggressive, receiving a red card in the 67th minute. Porto could not stay calm, Wendell lost just three minutes on the elbow to Mateus Cunha, leaving the match at 10 for 10.

Bone moment today

Nicolo Barilla, Inter Milan: This could have gone to a group of people in that Atleti-Porto match, but we’d give it to the Italy international for losing his temper and costing his team the chance to win the group over Real Madrid. After receiving a kick in the shoulder from Eder Militao, who saw him hitting the billboard, Barilla lost his nerve and apparently tried to punch the Brazilian in the leg. The VAR looked at the matter, and it was nothing but a clear red card for Parilla. Now, that doesn’t mean Inter would have come back, but they wanted to win the set and missed any chance to do so when it happened 26 minutes before play.

Sebastian Haller, Ajax: How not to be a French striker? He scored in every group stage game, something only Cristiano Ronaldo had done before this season. This campaign, his first UCL tour, saw him score 10 times. For those who count, he has scored more goals in this group stage than he scored in a season and a half at West Ham (14).

Hurting your team in a match doesn’t mean anything worth rewarding

Manchester City had nothing to gain from the 2-1 loss to RB Leipzig on Tuesday having already won the group. But they had a lot to lose. So, of course, something wrong puts them in a difficult position in the Round of 16. They will be without primary right-back Kyle Walker after a hilarious challenge to Andre Silva, penetrating the Portuguese forward from behind. It was a clear red, and Pep Guardiola will be pissed off at Walker’s lack of composure, while also dealing with the headache of being substituted in at least the last 16 first leg.
