From the first minutes of the first half, Atlético took a good lead and went on the attack. Angel Correa and Yannick Carrasco both took their shots a little further than in the first 10 minutes. Real Madrid meanwhile tried to keep the ball, they stepped up the defense and Nacho Fernandez was there to block Matheus Cunha’s bottom corner attempt in the middle of the half.
