Atletico Madrid got their Champions League Group A campaign back on track as two goals from Joao Felix helped them to a 3-2 win over Salzburg on Tuesday.
Diego Simeone’s side suffered a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of the defending champions Bayern Munich last week, but they started well against their Austrian opponents and went ahead through Marcos Llorente shortly before the half-hour mark.
Salzburg – who drew with Lokomotiv Moscow in their opening game – stormed into a 2-1 lead, though, thanks to goals either side of half-time from Dominik Szoboszlai and Mergim Berisha.
But Joao Felix had other ideas, quickly drawing Atletico level and then securing all three points five minutes from time with an improvised finish.
