Atlético Madrid and Malmö have both obtained three points from their first two fixtures in the Group round, scoring one win and one loss apiece. In the rankings, the Spanish side are only ahead by the total number of goals scored.

 

Atlético Madrid

A late goal by Arda Turan against Italian side Juventus ensured that last season’s runners up still have the opportunity to chase for the title. The Turkish midfielder netted the only goal of the battle just 16 minutes before full-time at the Vicente Calderon stadium to give Atletico Madrid all three points in the 1-0 triumph.

After incurring a 3-2 away loss to Olympiacos at the kick-off of the tournament last month, Atletico went into the encounter without injured captain Gabi and under pressure to deliver. While they managed to create plenty of chances against their Italian opponents, majority apparently went useless. Thanks to a good defense and Turan’s excellent timing, they avoided a second straight defeat in Europe’s top-flight continental club tilt.

 

Malmö FF

Pulling off a 2-0 clean sheet victory against Olympiacos, Malmo made a historic performance in their second appearance at the Champions League’s new season. A brace from Markus Rosenberg proved extremely vital in ushering Swedish footballing talent in the continental arena. The player largely benefited from an Olympiacos defense that went into shambles and netted the opener three minutes into half-time and his second in the dying minutes of the battle. It was a well-deserved win that helped turn their frustrating debut around.

 

Champions League betting tip: Atletico Madrid will earn all the spoils against Malmo.
