Posted : 14 March 2024

Atletico Madrid secured a dramatic victory over Inter Milan in the Champions League, triumphing on penalties to advance to the quarter-finals and eliminate last season's runners-up. Despite a 2-2 aggregate scoreline at the end of extra time, Atletico's goalkeeper Jan Oblak emerged as the hero, saving crucial penalties from Alexis Sanchez and Davy Klaassen, while Inter's Lautaro Martinez missed his spot-kick, sealing Atletico's thrilling progression.


With the quarter-final draw scheduled for Friday, 15 March at 11:00 GMT, Atletico await their potential opponents among the likes of Arsenal, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Paris St-Germain, Real Madrid, and Borussia Dortmund. The Spanish side's remarkable comeback sets the stage for an exciting next round in the prestigious tournament.


Inter Milan, who had won the first leg 1-0 in Italy and seemed poised to advance after doubling their aggregate lead through Federico Dimarco's goal, suffered a stunning collapse as Atletico fought back fiercely. Antoine Griezmann's quick response to Inter's second goal injected renewed hope for Atletico, setting the stage for a tense battle.


The match witnessed high drama, with Atletico substitute Memphis Depay equalizing late in the game to send the tie into extra time. Despite further chances, including a missed opportunity by Rodrigo Riquelme in injury time, neither side could find the decisive goal, leading to the drama of penalties. Atletico's nerve held firm as they converted their penalties to secure a memorable victory and progress to the next stage of the competition.
