Atlético Madrid wasted a good opportunity to take a convincing lead in to the second leg after they were held to a scoreless draw by a Sporting Lisbon side who played for an hour with ten men. There was little action until midway through the first half, when Agüero fired a shot just wide. Liedson lobbed a shot against the bar a couple of minutes later, but soon afterwards Grimi was sent off for a second bookable offence after bringing down Reyes. After that though visiting keeper Rui Patricio was only troubled by a couple of efforts from Agüero, and although the Portuguese side ended with nine men when Tonel was also sent off for pushing over Agüero near the end, Atlético never looked like scoring.
