78 'And there it is almost 0-3 for City, which is really waltzing over Gladbach.

A shot from Gundogan narrowly goes over.

74 'Real started energetically in the second half, but was unable to continue that line.

Atalanta does not create anything herself, but will be satisfied with the limited amount of opportunities it allows with ten men.

Atalanta-Real Madrid · in 5 days

For the time being no goals at Atalanta-Real.

That is striking, given Atalanta's statistics in the Champions League.

Until now, every CL match of the Italians has yielded at least two goals.

The only exception is the match against Ajax earlier this season.

In Amsterdam Atalanta then won 0-1.

53 'What an opportunity for Vinicius!

A few meters from the goal, the winger suddenly gets the ball in front of his feet, but miraculously the ball goes over the goal.

In this way Atalanta still stands, although Real is increasingly insisting.

Gladbach-Manchester City · in 5 days

Gladbach has never once fired on the City goal in this game.

And that is striking since the German team was one of the most scoring teams in Europe in the group stage of the Champions League with sixteen hits.

47 'Atalanta escapes just after the break.

The bet from Modric with an odds on the right is changed direction, and rolls just along the wrong side of the post for Real.

Can the 'home team' in Budapest do something about the backlog?

Atalanta-Real Madrid · in 5 days

Peace! 

Atalanta and Real Madrid are going to rest with a 0-0 score.

The home team has been playing with ten men through Freuler's red card for half an hour, but Real has a lot of trouble converting the numerical majority into opportunities.

45 + 1 'The biggest chance in the first half is for Varane.

Kroos cuts a free kick sharply and Gollini reflexively prevents the opening goal of the French defender.

44 'Isco gets a chance to open the score, but misses the ball after a cross from the right.

The repetition shows that the Spaniard was offside, so a possible goal would not have counted anyway.

The last time Gladbach conceded a hit at the highest European level was on April 12, 1978. In the return of the semi-finals, Ray Kennedy, Kenny Dalglish and Jimmy Case recorded the hits on behalf of Liverpool at the time.

40 'The ten of Atalanta remain fairly simple for the time being and are now also making themselves heard.

However, Luis Muriel gets no further than a soft shot, which rolls harmlessly wide.

39 'Finally some danger from Real, but Vinicius shoots over.

Shortly afterwards, Marco Asensio heads straight into the hands of Gollini

Borussia Mönchengladbach has nothing to say against the British superpower in this first half.

Before the game, there was a minute of silence before the death of Atalanta player Willy Braciano Ta Bi (21).

He died of a tumor yesterday.

Top scorer Duvan Zapata cannot continue.

After half an hour it is a hit for Manchester City!

João Cancelo puts the ball perfectly on the head of Bernardo Silva, who simply opens the score.

25 'Nacho steams up from the defense and may continue like this, but then hits the ball so badly that it goes over the sideline on the other side of the field.

23 'Casemiro gets yellow and misses the return match in Madrid in three weeks.

Zidane already misses a large number of players tonight and has to do without his controlling midfielder in the return anyway.

22 'With his red card, Freuler gets two questionable milestones to his name.

He is the first Atalanta player ever to be red in a Champions League match and the first Swiss to receive a direct red card in the Champions League.

Gladbach-Manchester City · in 5 days

23 'After a quarter of a game we saw a few half possibilities for City in Budapest.

Both teams have not yet arrived at played opportunities.

Remo Freuler takes down the broken Ferland Mendy and can break in.

Big setback for the Italians.

13 'City hardly lets Gladbach come from their own half in the opening phase of this match.

The Germans seem to rely mainly on the counter today.

Atalanta started well, but Real Madrid now seems to be taking the reins a bit more.
