Atletico Madrid entertained Club Brugge at the Wanda Metropolitano earlier this evening as they hoped to earn a good result at home in the UEFA Champions League. The Madrid giants made a dominant start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at half-time.

Diego Simeone’s men pushed on in search of the opening goal in the second half and found themselves at a numerical advantage in the 82nd minute when Kamal Sowah was sent off by the referee. The contest ended with Atletico being held to a frustrating 0-0 draw in the Spanish capital.

Let’s take a look at how each Atletico Madrid player fared during the match against Club Brugge.

GK: Jan Oblak – 6.5/10

The talented keeper had to make just one save in the game and secured an easy clean sheet at home.

RB: Nahuel Molina – 7/10

Molina got stuck in with some solid tackles and had two lively moments in the opponent’s half.

CB: Stefan Savic – 7/10

He was solid when defending inside his half and created one key chance going forward.

CB: Jose Gimenez – 7/10
