But it took just a matter of minutes before Atletico were level. Coming forward and getting plenty of crosses in, Inter failed to clear the ball.

Atletico will no doubt feel it was just reward for the pressure they have put on Inter in the first half, although Denzel Dumfries forced an excellent save with perhaps the best chance of the match not counting the goals.
