Barcelona pulled out a strong defensive performance against Atletico Madrid. Even though it was not the prettiest sight, they managed to cling to their lead, and Andreas Christensen had a big role in it. He took part in five defensive duels and won three of them, while he won both of the aerial duels he participated in. Christensen also had seven interceptions and 11 recoveries.
On a night that started brilliantly for Barcelona, they had to fight tooth and nail to secure the three points from the Wanda Metropolitano. They did just that and made sure that they get a lead on the top of the table. Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, would be frustrated that they couldn’t get any points even after dominating the game.
