Simeone’s men defeated Guardiola’s side by 1-0 to keep their hope of progressing to the final stage alive, courtesy of Saul Niguez 11th minutes goal.
The defeat has given Atletico Madrid ‘slim hope’, as they travel to Germany next week in the second encounter. Interestingly, the 1-0 defeat may still be seen as very low, considering a Bayern Munich side that has a remarkable record of only one defeat in 24 matches at home, the tie is far from over.
On the contrary, Atletico have had more victories at home in knock-out stages, while away they get a draw or lose. But for a German side that would come out to fight, the second leg is going to be tough.
Bayern possessed the ball and played more, but luck was not really on their side, as Atletico goalkeeper Oblak stopped several scoring chances created by Bayern Munich.
Alaba, Vidal all made several attempts, but it looked as if there was no goal made for Bayern that night.
