Real Madrid beat Atalanta 3-1 in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 and qualify for the quarter-finals. The European adventure of the Bergamo players ends, defeated in both challenges by the blancos. After the home knockout of the first leg, the team coached by Gasperini is looking for an away company.
The Nerazzurri’s plans jumped in the 34th minute, when an error by Sportiello paves the way for the Iberians. The goalkeeper gives the ball to Modric, who advances and offers a colossal chance to Benzema: the Frenchman only has to deposit the ball in the net for the 1-0. Real virtually closes the games in the 60th minute. Fouls by Toloi on Vinicius, the contact takes place on the edge of the penalty area: penalty that Ramos transforms, 2-0 and game over half an hour early. Atalanta have the merit of staying in the game and in the 83rd minute shortens the distance with Muriel’s splendid free-kick: 2-1. Real, however, do not even have time to waver. Asensio at 85 ‘hits the winning low shot: 3-1.
