Atletico Madrid have edged past Liverpool by a lone goal in their UEFA Champions League Round-of-16 first leg encounter at the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday night.
Saul Niguez scored the only goal of the game in the fourth minute and the hosts held on to see off the reigning European Champions.
They will be hoping to build on the victory when they proceed to Anfield for the second leg clash against Liverpool in three weeks’ time.
The Premier League outfit were frustrated by the home side in their attempt to get back on level terms as Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson wasted their best opportunities. (Text courtesy of Daily Trust)
