Atletico Madrid created another defensive dog scene to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League, beating Red Bull Salzburg 2-0.
The Austrians, who needed a win to qualify, attacked this post as Merkim Perisha initially demolished several positions.

Diego Simeone, who welcomed Luis Suarez back into the line-up, saw his side soaking up pressure and scores typically from a set piece, with Mario Hermoso seeing his first goal for the club with a free-kick.
In the second period the side of the house continued to dominate and was in vain towards the goal. Reported Arsenal goalkeeper Dominique Sophosloy and Rosmus Christensen both failed to find the target from close range.
Enoch Mawbeu attacked the post with a long-distance effort for the hosts in the final stages, but the Liga leaders sealed the victory with a late volley from Yannik Karasko.
Was the result harsh for the Austrians? Had their shooting boots been in the Salzburg game, it would have been a match within half an hour. They attacked the woodworkers once in a half and missed several chances from close range, failing to adequately test John Oblock.
It was similar to the game against Bayer last month, when Robert Lewandowski overcame several chances before leading the dominating champions to victory. Atletico did what they did best, had plenty of men behind the ball, Salzburg did beautiful things and did enough to clear the win, it was a Simeon master class.

Man of the Match
Stephen Chavic (Atletico Madrid): In the absence of experienced Jose Cimenez, the former Manchester City man landed on a busy evening for Atletico defense. The handling and tidying up of the four then was entirely enjoyable. He was unfairly recorded for vintage smashing for the Simeon type challenge.
