Atletico Madrid 3-2 Salzburg: Joao Felix exits it late for Simeone's side

Atletico Madrid got their Champions League Group A campaign back on course as two goals from Joao Felix helped them to a 3-2 gain Salzburg on Tuesday.

Diego Simeone’s side suffered a 4-0 walloping by the defending champions Bayern Munich last week, but they started well versus their Austrian opponents and went on with Marcos Llorente soon before the half-hour mark.

Salzburg – that drew with Lokomotiv Moscow in their opening match – stormed right into a 2-1 lead, however, thanks to goals either side of half-time from Dominik Szoboszlai as well as Mergim Berisha.

However Joao Felix had various other ideas, rapidly drawing Atletico degree and afterwards protecting all 3 points five mins from time with a great strike.
