It is time to take a look at the Player Ratings of the Champions League Group A fixture between Lokomotiv Moscow and Atletico Madrid.

Lokomotiv Moscow and Atletico Madrid ended up drawing the Champions League Group A fixture at Stadion Lokomotiv. Both sides could not further break the deadlock in the highly entertaining clash played in front of 8,000 fans.

However, early in the 18th minute, Jose Maria Gimenez took Atletico in the lead. The Uruguay international headed a curling ball from Hector Herrera past Guilherme Marinato in Lokomotiv’s goal.

Although, the home side showed resilience to upset Atletico. In just seven minutes after Gimenez’s goal, Lokomotiv was rewarded with a penalty. VAR subsequently made a decision to give the spot-kick following Herrara’s handball in the box. And Anton Miranchuk slotted it past Jan Oblak to restore the game to level.

Diego Simeone’s side could not overpower the Russian club like last week’s 3-2 win against Salzburg. Additionally, frustration grew for Atletico following missed opportunities, including Joao Feliz’s long-range attempt.
