Salah enchanted

The man of the evening is undoubtedly Mohamed Salah.

Currently in great shape, the Liverpool striker was brilliant on Tuesday night.

His ball-to-foot technique, as well as his burst of speed, caused a lot of misery to Atlético's rearguard.

On his right side, the Pharaoh illuminated the match of his class.

If the opening of the score is finally attributed to James Milner (8th), it is the Egyptian international who made the difference on a curled left foot strike of which he has the secret (deflected by the Englishman at the last moment) .

At the end of the game, he had the nerves to transform the victory penalty (78th).

A new full game for "Mo Salah", who game after game, asserts himself a little more as one of the best players in the world.

Griezmann's double ...

After months of hardship on the side of FC Barcelona, ​​Antoine Griezmann seems to have come back to life since his return to Atlético.

While his team was in great difficulty against the Reds, the Frenchman completely revived his team with a saving double.

By deflecting a shot from Koke (20th), then taking up an offering from João Félix (34th), “Grizou” made his talent speak.

His recent good performances in the Champions League show that he is far from over and that he will still have to be counted on this season.

The only downside and it is size, his red card collected at the start of the second period (52nd), which unfortunately for him tarnishes a performance that had been particularly successful until then.

Flops

... his red card

The Mâconnais will have lived an evening of the Champions League with contrasting emotions. In the first period, “Grizou” turned into a savior. While his team was in great difficulty, the French international donned his savior costume by scoring a double (20th, 34th). This superb performance should have done good for the former FC Barcelona player, after his last complicated months. Yes but now, everything does not always go as planned. In the second half, he was completely scuttled. In contact with Roberto Firmino, he raised his leg very high, too high. His foot hit the Brazilian's face head on. If the gesture seemed involuntary, it was still very dangerous and the decision of the match referee, Daniel Siebert, to take the red card out of his pocket seemed,certainly cruel, but rather logical (52nd). A brace, followed by an expulsion, Griezmann became the first player in the history of the Champions League to achieve such a performance.

Kondogbia center-back

Diego Simeone took the curious decision to establish Geoffrey Kondogbia as central defender against Liverpool, which he later bitterly regretted. The Central African international seemed totally lost on the ground. Particularly feverish, often misplaced ... He no longer had his serenity that he nevertheless displays regularly when he plays in the midfielder of the Colchoneros. Guilty on the opening of Milner's score where he slightly deflects the ball (8th), he then got tangled up with his defense partners on the goal of Naby Keita (13th). He was very often caught in the back by the Reds forwards for forty-five minutes not far from being nightmarish for him.Diego Simeone finally decided to get him out at the break to put an end to his ordeal. A match has been forgotten for the former Monegasque.
