Atletico Madrid 1 Qarabag 1: Rojiblancos denied again by 10 men

01 Noviembre 2017

Thomas Partey's second-half equaliser and the 59th-minute dismissal of Pedro Henrique was not enough to keep the Azerbaijani outfit from holding the LaLiga heavyweights to another stalemate.

Yet despite laying siege to the visitors' area, the Liga side could not find a winner, while Atletico's Stefan Savic was sent off for a second booking in the 88th minute.

The breakthrough moment in the match arrived five minutes before the interval as Spanish midfielder Michel, formerly of Sporting Gijon, got his head to Wilde-Donald Guerrier's set-piece delivery and picked out the top corner. It will be interesting how to see how Zidane resolves his first real crisis on the Bernabéu bench. The situation in Group C has developed so that the right to make mistakes now has no "mattress". The Azeris managed to surprise the house by playing 0: 0 with Madrid.

The result leaves Atletico with just three points from four games and the result was made even worse by Roma's 3-0 win at home to Chelsea, which leaves them four points behind Chelsea and five behind Roma with just two games left to play.

Qarabag may have had to soak up the pressure, but they edged the first-half possession count and created the odd opening of their own before taking a shock lead.

Gameiro was guilty of wasting another good chance immediately after the restart, the France striker unable to readjust when Sehic pushed Correa's shot into his path.
