Atlético Madrid lost 4-0 to Borussia Dortmund in their third group game, and they drop to second place, now three points adrift of the German side. Witsel gave the locals the lead with a shot which deflected off Saúl shortly before the break, and although Saúl hit the woodwork after the restart, Guerreiro made it two on a quick breakaway later on in the second half. Soon afterwards Bürki tipped an effort from Correa on to the post, but Sancho and Guerreiro added two more in the last ten minutes or so for Atleti’s biggest ever defeat under Simeone. They are still however well placed to qualify for the knock-out stage, especially after Brugge and Mónaco drew in the other group game.
