For his first appearance in the new season, the Portuguese settled the match with a goal at the entrance to the area.
The match took place in Oslo and had two Portuguese holders, but on the side of Manchester United. Even without Cristiano Ronaldo, Ten Hag still relied on Diogo Dalot and Bruno Fernandes early on, both completing the 90′ against the mattress.
The match was very balanced in the first half, with good chances on both sides, but with a slight recovery from the Red Devils, given Atlético’s well-known defensive style.
For the second half, Bruno Fernandes had a great chance, which nearly stunned Oblak with a free kick, and more chances for United to take the lead. But the goal ended up being Madrid … and scored by a Portuguese: here is João Félix!
