Atletico Madrid come from behind to draw 2-2 with Juve

Champions League By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 18/09/2019

Atletico Madrid come from behind to draw 2-2 with Juventus at Wanda Metropolitano in the UEFA Champions League group opener after Hector Herrera equalizer in the 90th minute of the encounter.

Juan Cuadrado opens the floodgate after a stunning strike three minutes into the second half before France international Blaise Matuidi header looked to have earned Maurizio Sarri's side victory in Group D on Wednesday.

However, Atletico produced a wonderful fightback as set pieces proved Juve's undoing, Stefan Savic nodding home from close range to set up a grandstand finish at the Wanda Metropolitano.

With injury time beckoning, substitute Herrera rose highest in the box to superbly flick home a header from Kieran Trippier's left-wing corner but Cristiano Ronaldo steals the show last minutes of the fixtures after a brilliant jinking run from to past one, then a second then checks inside a third drills a right-foot shot towards the far corner...but it arcs just wide, leaving the spoils shared.
