Atletico Madrid Knock Inter Milan Out Of UCL On Penalties

After 90mins of class of play, Atletico Madrid and Inter needing a penalty shootout to separate them after playing out a 2-2 draw over the course of 210 minutes of football.

Inter had led 1-0 on aggregate from the first leg and looked set to make it through in normal time, even after Antoine Griezmann had cancelled out Federico Dimarco's first half opener on the night. But a clinical 87th minute finish from Memphis Depay near the penalty spot put Atletico level on aggregate and forced an additional 30 minutes, during which neither side wanted to lose.

Penalties ensued and, after Hakan Calhanaoglu and Memphis had each converted, three consecutive misses from Alexis Sanchez, Saul Niguez and Davy Klaassen handed the advantage to Atletico. Rodrigo Riquelme, Francesco Acerbi and Angel Correa all then scored, leaving Diego Simeone's side with a 3-2 lead after four attempts each. Lautaro Martinez needed to convert just to keep Inter alive, But, usually so deadly in front of goal this season, he fired high and wide to hand Atletico the win.
