In all seriousness, it was surprising to see a Simeone

team look that weak in the midfield and on the back line. Saul Niguez had about as poor a game as humanly possible and was completely destroyed by Kroos all game. Koke had one of his worst passing games ever and Gabi was thrown aside by Benzema like a little doll on the 2nd strike by Cristiano.

This is a very different Atletico team than we are accustomed to seeing in that they do not close out every ball with physical play. They could not service Griez at all and Gameiro did one of his disappearing acts which happens too often and forces Atletico to play Torres who is past his best days (though I will admit I will be a fan of his forever). 4 shots with one on goal says everything.

Very interested to see what happens today. Can Monaco get one at home and put some pressure on Juve? An early goal would be massive for them.
