With this result, Diego Simeone's team finishes the group stage at the top of Group H with 14 points and qualified for the round of 16. The Italians took second place with ten points.

HOW WAS IT AT THE MATCH?

Atlético de Madrid managed to open the scoring early in the match, in the 6th minute, when Samuel Lino intercepted the ball and set up Antoine Griezmann, who scored the colchoneros' first goal at the Metropolitano.

Maurizio Sarri's men tried to impose their game and began to put pressure on the hosts, but to no avail as Atleti continued to create dangerous counter-attacking opportunities. Mario Hermoso scored for Atlético de Madrid, but VAR disallowed the goal due to Lino's offside position.

However, the Brazilian managed to “redeem”. In the 16th minute of the last stage, he was the first to reach the goalkeeper Provedel and hit the goalkeeper at an angle, which sealed the victory for Colchonera. Lazio even tried to react, but there was virtually no threat to Oblak.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Atlético de Madrid returns to the field this Saturday (16/12) at 12:15 (Brazilian time) to face Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Championship. On Sunday (17/12) at 16:45 Lazio will face Inter Milan as part of the Italian championship.
