Atletico Madrid – Borussia Dortmund

We call it a wish for revenge, because the first match between these two sides in Dortmund ended with a 4-0 win for the German team. This was really unexpectable, because you can rarely see Diego Simeone’s Atletico suffering heavy defeats like this.
It was a great night for Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park. Lucien Favre’s outperformed Atletico in every aspect of the game. The four goals in Jan Oblak’s net were scored by Axel Witsel, Raphael Guerrero (twice) and Jadon Sancho. Atletico put their best players on the pitch, but this was just their day.
