Atletico Madrid 3-2 Salzburg: Joao Felix leaves it late for Simeone’s side

Joao Felix was the star for Atletico Madrid as they bounced back in style from last week’s thumping by Bayern Munich.
Atletico Madrid got their Champions League Group A campaign back on track as two goals from Joao Felix helped them to a 3-2 win over Salzburg on Tuesday.

Diego Simeone’s side suffered a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of the defending champions Bayern Munich last week, but they started well against their Austrian opponents and went ahead through Marcos Llorente shortly before the half-hour mark.

Salzburg – who drew with Lokomotiv Moscow in their opening game – stormed into a 2-1 lead, though, thanks to goals either side of half-time from Dominik Szoboszlai and Mergim Berisha.
