After the inevitable VAR check, Ramos is permitted to take the penalty. He fires towards the bottom left. It’s not a particularly good spot kick, Sportiello getting a hand to the ball, but the keeper can only palm into the corner. This is over.
Vinicius Junior is an exceptional talent. He latches onto a looks Malinovskyi pass in the midfield and whistles down the inside-left channel. He makes it to the edge of the box. Toloi puts his foot out, flush on the white line, and brings his man down. Penalty.
Vinicius Junior is inelegantly upended just to the left of the Atalanta D by Toloi. He should be awarded a free kick, but the referee allows play to go on, because Mendy has the ball. The hero of the first leg tries his luck again, but this time his shot goes straight at the keeper.
Muriel scampers down the left again. His ball infield isn’t all that, but it’s another sign that Atalanta could grab a goal that would change everything. Although then Real break, Vinicius Junior dribbling down the left, gliding inside, jinking past three defenders, and flicking a shot inches wide of the right-hand post. That would have been one hell of a solo goal.
Muriel rolls a pass infield from the left. Zapata backflicks cleverly down the channel, hoping to release Gosens, but there’s a little too much juice on the pass and it flies through to Courtois.
