  Atletico Madrid can still hurt Barcelona without Luis Suarez PETE JENSON IN SPAIN: Atletico still have LaLiga's best player on recent form in Joao Felix, there is a clear example of them coping without Suarez, and there is also the prospect of Diego Costa returning.If he was beginning to fancy his chances of breaking the duck this Saturday, then the news that Luis Suarez will miss the game because of a positive coronavirus test will have dampened his optimism.

Atletico Madrid thought they had qualified for the Champions League last-16, then Thomas Muller climbed off the bench to snatch it from them with five minutes left.

Bayern Munich, already with top place secured, had rested players for their penultimate group game but 1-0 down Hans-Dieter Flick put Muller on with half and hour left and he won and scored the penalty that leaves Diego Simone’s side still needing a point from their away game at RB Salzburg next Wednesday.

Joao Felix broke the deadlock for Atletico on 25 minutes when he turned in from close range after Marcos Llorente had swapped passes with Kieran Trippier and pulled the ball back from the byline for the Portuguese.

His overall rating of 93 is one point lower than his original FIFA 20 card, which screamed with a massive score of 94. But this will still be the item everyone is chasing when the game lands on 9 October, boasting 96 dribbling, 96 ball control, 95 vision and 95 finishing.

Bayern had not trailed in the Champions League at the break since 2017. They almost pulled level 15 minutes into the second half when former Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Hernandez crashed a header just over at the near post from a corner.

Niklas Sule took the ball off of Angel Correa’s toe just as he was about to shoot from inside the six-yard box in one of Atletico’s better second half chances. They were desperate for a second goal to calm the nerves. Trippier was a constant threat down the right playing as a wing-back in Simeone’s 5-3-2.

Felix hit the bar from another attack although the flag was raised so it wouldn’t have counted. Muller and Serge Gnabry were both stripped to come on at the hour point – more evidence that this was far from over despite Bayern already having top spot secured.

Holding on to the lead go even tougher when Jose Gimenez hobbled off. Felipe came on but there was a sense that Atletico Madrid were now a little more exposed – one mistake and they would be reduced to relying on their last game.

Simeone prowled nervously and with seven minutes left it was substitute Felipe who stuck out his right leg and Muller tripped over it. The penalty was given and for all that Oblak flung his huge frame the right way, Muller drilled his kick into the back of the net.

Felipe could have made amends with the very last kick but agonisingly when the last corner flashed across the face of the goal in injury time he couldn’t make contact.
