The match is a competition between two opposing football styles.

Atletico defended thoroughly, only scoring twice and both took place in the second half.

Man City dominated possession right after the opening kickoff, while Atletico proactively retreated deep to defend.

Man City’s attempts to hang the ball from both sides were ineffective as Atletico always arranged enough people in front of Jan Oblak’s goal.

Man City’s difficult match continued in the first 20 minutes of the second half.

Atletico counterattacked more in the second half, relying on the speed of Felix and Griezmann.

Coach Guardiola also replaced three people in the 69th minute, with three attacking players, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and Gabriel Jesus, entering the field.

Foden’s cleverness created many mutations for Man City’s attack.

Despite the score disadvantage, Atletico did not press forward to find an equalizer.
