    From Live Commentary

    Atletico have looked like a completely different side in this second
    half and there is no doubt that the reason for that is Torres, Correa,
    and Oliver. Jackson Martinez and Luciano Vietto will certainly have
    their day for Los Colchoneros, but it wasn’t tonight and their
    team-mates have took advantage to come on and win this game.

    1st goal Fernando Torres assisted Ángel Correa and 2nd goal Ángel Correa assisted Fernando Torres, what a night to remember!

    Oliver Oliver Oliver, wow, wow, wow. Total control of the midfield and attack after Koke went off. What a way to step up. 10/10 performance from Oliver. Great job!

    And Correa and Fernando! Great impact substitutes. Correa is unbelievably good, and Fernando looks to still have a little bit of his pace that we loved so much.
    Even the first half was good for me, but we depended on crosses from full backs more than creating chances from the midfield, but that’s because we started with defensive minded mids, who are definitely not creators, save Koke. Vietto needs to do better to play more, but we all know he’s not someone who can create his own chances and score, so 4-3-3 really isn’t the formation for him unless he’s playing in the center.

    Great to see Keko again.
