No real problems for Atlético Madrid, a 0-0 draw at home to Bayer Leverkusen taking them through comfortably to the quarter finals for the fourth year in a row. The 2-4 result from the first leg meant that the German side had to win by a margin of three in the Calderón stadium, but with Oblak on great form that was never going to happen. The Slovenian keeper made important saves in the second half from Brandt, Volland and others, whilst his opposite number Leno also kept out Correa and Koke before the break. Job done, and Atleti now have to concentrate on the weekend match against Sevilla.
