We urge you to watch Joao Felix’s outrageous performance against RB Salzburg for Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League. 

Joao Felix first came to Atletico Madrid with an incredible €126 million price tag but he finally played his best performance vs RB Salzburg. After losing 4-0 against Bayern Munich in the Champions League opening match, the Colchoneros needed a great night to regain their trust.

But the young Portuguese star truly needed a performance of epic proportions in order to prove he is truly as good as they paint him to be. From the first minute of the game, it was evident he was on a mission to prove himself. Marcos Llorente started things off on the right foot with a fantastic long-range effort that gave Atletico the initial advantage.

Szoboszlai scored the equalizer for the visiting squad before the break. Joao nearly sealed an impressive first-half performance with an outrageous overhead kick that hit the bar. He would get his revenge during the final minutes of the game.

Joao nets it twice for Atletico. 

Right after the second-half whistle, Berisha scored an early goal that placed the Colchoneros against the ropes. But Felix wasn’t willing to let this happen, he led his side to victory with unforgettable final minutes. First, he led a counter-attack that meant the equalizer for Diego Simeone’s boys.

The drama was extended until the final minute during a corner kick for Atletico Madrid. Joao scored a beautiful volley that made ‘Cholo’ run like a crazy person on the sidelines. Felix finally proved he can be an important player for the Colchoneros.

A brace and that overhead kick is giving us a small taste of what this player can become. Cool as hell, Joao keeps taking steps that make him grow in order to someday become the best Portuguese player in the world.
