Giants have already fallen in Glasgow…Atletico didn’t go down, but it had huge problems. JanOblak and his teammates were away at Celtic and went winless at Celtic Park. It ended in a 2-2 draw, with Celtic getting their first point of the new Champions League season and Atletico getting their second draw.
Atletico started the away game at Celtic Park rather poorly, as Jan Oblak had to come off the bench in the 5th minute. Kyogo Furuhashi finds himself alone in front of his own goal on the first minute after a nice run by the home team, and the ball goes into his own net. With this goal, the Japanese player prevented Škofjelo from keeping his net intact for more than 200 consecutive minutes.
Three minutes later, we saw the first substitution on the home side, when Paulo Bernardo came on for Rea Hatate, who was unable to continue. V 23. On 30 minutes, the referee Felix Zwayer points to the white spot after contact in the home penalty area and Antoine Griezmann takes charge. The Frenchman missed the 11th-minute penalty, but after Joe Hart defended and the ball rebounded off the post, he put the ball into the unguarded part of the net.
Just five minutes later, the Atletico defence was again down after Luis Palma beat Jan Oblak with a very accurate shot. Before the end of the first half, Celtic’s net was shaking again, but Axel Witsel’ s goal was disallowed for offside.
The guests scored 53. Alvaro Morata scored the second equaliser of the match in the final minute, after a fine cross from Marcos Llorente was perfectly met by Alvaro Morata in the home penalty area. Just five minutes later, Jan Oblak had to make an alternative header to deny the home team a dangerous chance, and he cleared the ball in front of Maeda. Atletico were determined to win and had a couple of chances, but Rodrigo de Paulo’ s second yellow card in 82. forced them to settle for a 2:2 draw.
