Today, Spanish football club Atlético Madrid progressed to the UEFA Champions League Final after defeating German giants Bayern Munich 2–2 on aggregate in the second leg of their semi-final clash at the Allianz Arena. Atlético won the reverse fixture at the Vicente Calderón 1–0 on April 27 through a sublime individual goal from Saúl Ñíguez.

Rojiblancos conceded a goal in the 31st minute after the ball deflected off José María Giménez from a Xabi Alonso‘s free kick. Soon afterwards Giménez was yellow carded for impeding Javi Martínez in the box, resulting in a penalty. Thomas Müller stepped up but Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak managed to keep it out. Early in the second half, Frenchman Antoine Griezmann scored a crucial away goal. Bayern took the lead in the 71st minute through Robert Lewandowski finishing off a move from close range after Arturo Vidal‘s initial header. Bayern’s Martínez then fouled Fernando Torres, giving away a penalty which was saved by Neuer. Bayern kept their pressure up on Atlético until the final whistle as they looked for another goal to take the game to extra time, but it wasn’t to be for Pep Guardiola as his side were eliminated by Spanish opposition for the third consecutive season.

Atlético made the most of their inferior 33% possession and fewer shots on goal to confirm their place in the Champions League Final for the second time in three seasons. Diego Simeone‘s squad will face the winner between Real Madrid and Manchester City on May 28 at the San Siro in Milan, Italy in the UEFA Champions League Final.
