Atlético de Madrid begins its journey in the Champions League this Wednesday, September 7, hosting Porto at the Metropolitano. The rojiblancos make their debut in Group B of the European competition.
The Champions League always excites the people of Madrid. Diego Simeone, coach of Atlético de Madrid, admitted on Tuesday that "always" is an "opportunity" for his team, which he sees "well, growing, with a more aggressive and intense intention and with much more dynamic pressure than last season".
And he warned of Porto's level: "In principle, it's a team like its coach, who spreads enthusiasm, illusion, energy, vitality, work... It looks like a very intense team."
Simeone will not be able to count on the Brazilian Felipe Monteiro, one of the two players suspended for the first day of the 2022/23 Champions League.
The match between Atlético de Madrid and Porto will be played this Wednesday, September 7, at 9:00 p.m. (Spanish time). It can be seen live through Movistar Plus Liga de Campeones and it can be followed minute by minute on the La Vanguardia website.
