Lost 2-1 to Porto
The 2022/23 European campaign is over
WHAT HAPPENED? Atletico’s defeat ended a dismal European campaign in a dismal way, as they finished bottom of Group B and missed their chance to earn a spot in the Europa League.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Diego Simeone’s team were down 1-0 after just five minutes thanks to Mehdi Taremi in a game they needed to win, and were two behind just 20 minutes later. They couldn’t get back into the game and only managed to score with an own goal on death, confirming they finished bottom of the group behind Bayer Leverkusen, Club Brugge and group winners Porto.

WHAT TO DO FOR ATLETICO MADRID? Having finished in last place, Atleti’s only focus now is on their domestic campaign, where they are already adrift in the La Liga title race.
