Champion punch

Bayern beat a very daring Atlético as they want in the line-up and in the game, but who pays dearly for their mistakes in defense and against Neuer

As and when he wanted, Bayern beat Atlético.

Four goals that manifested the brutal punch that the champion looks like.

He punished each visitor error in the first act to put distance on the scoreboard and finished off the task in the second with two goals.

The last of Coman, more fired and with a looser waist after his goal in the final in Lisbon.

Trippier won't forget it for a long time.

While the attacks of Simeone's team generated some scratches, those of Hans Flick's Bayern were undeniable smash.

Atlético was daring, wanting to look into the face of a rival so well armed and who plays so convinced that he does not change even when he feels threatened.

Bayern plays with an insulting superiority, sure that when he steps on the accelerator his infinity of resources will bring him victory.

Atlético proved it.

To pass the test of that high pressure and the voracious attack that characterize the champion, Simeone undressed like never before.

He assembled a lineup with two offensive full-backs and a midfield without a pure midfielder of containment.

Koke and Herrera at the controls and Carrasco and Llorente at the sides.

The latter was actually hired as a pivot, but his coach soon stopped trusting him for that position.

Above, João Félix and Luis Suárez as the culmination of that offensive disorder so unusual in Cholo.

A paradox of eleven looking at what was in front.

Against the team most feared for its offensive plan, Simeone perhaps dropped out on the wrong day.

It's hard to think of a more offensive lineup.

Atlético's departure corresponded to that daring eleven.

Luis Suárez did not reach a center from Lodi after a good combination from right to left.

Shaken and warned, Bayern responded quickly.

Coman left Trippier dancing like a top and Lewandowski came to his past center to hunt him in the air and cross him with the interior.

That play marked Atlético's first shrinkage.

Bayern, delivered to the baton of Kimmich, established that dominance in the opposite field from which overwhelms with infinite resources.

You can do it from archaic lateral centers as well as with sophisticated dragging movements that promote very damaging circulations.

A corner kick combed at the first post by Müller crashed it off the post by Sule.

Vertigo attacks

From that Bayern government it was appreciated that the team designed by Simeone was more prepared to play in the opposite field than to sink in its area to withstand the torrent of attacks that it was beginning to receive.

Between Carrasco and João Félix they stretched Atlético with a couple of walls that did not find a sharp ending to unsettle Neuer.

It happened that when Simeone's footballers were less intimidated and looser, two consecutive errors cost him the first goal.

First it was Felipe with a bad delivery.

Later, with the ball divided, Kimmich showed João Félix how he goes to the ground to sweep.

The recovery was made by the superb German midfielder in a cross pass to Trippier's back.

And there Coman appeared to sleep the ball with control and execute Oblak with a soft touch and corner.

A champion team goal that does not forgive a crumb that is awarded.

An action that made Simeone desperate.

The same as the loss of Herrera that uncovered another of the virtues of this overwhelming Bayern, the meteoric transitions that he mounts after recovering the ball.

A bad back pass, which blurred the good performance of the Mexican, shot Coman, who had caught Trippier starting his deployment.

The center behind the end uncovered the barrage of red jerseys that the rival area becomes in those furious and vertiginous attacks.

Goretzka was the one who slammed the ball into Oblak's nets with a violent strike.

It is not usual to see Simeone's team concede two goals before the break, but in front they had one of the teams that least forgives concessions.

The start of the second half was a copy of the first.

Atlético pintón came out and João Félix hit Neuer's goal with a rebound that was annulled for offside.

Carrasco, after a good driving through the middle of João Félix, lost the goal for accommodating the shot more than necessary.

The Belgian forgave and soon Tolisso punished Oblak with a missile from 20 meters that cleared the squad.

Unattainable now, the party closed with the last dance of Coman.

A double cut to Felipe and a very fine cross hit that beat Oblak for the fourth time.
