Borussia Dortmund left the field deserved 2-0 losers away to Atlético Madrid in what was the 250th European match in the history of the club. The stats showed 16 shots at goal to 4 in favour of the home side, although BVB did see 65% of possession. Unfortunately, this wasn't enough to prevent them conceding the second goal on the counter attack.
Run ended: In Lucien Favre's 16th competitive fixture as head coach, his BVB side were defeated for the first time
Shot stopper: Roman Bürki kept out six shots on goal. He's only made more saves once before in a UEFA Champions League match, with seven.
Home record: Atlético have lost none of their last nine home matches against German clubs, with seven wins and two draws. The last home defeat dates back to the 1996/97 season, when they lost 1-0 in the group stage to… Borussia Dortmund.
Tough task: Borussia Dortmund have only won one of their last 15 matches in Spain. It was back in 1996/97 with a 1-0 win against Atlético Madrid, with Stefan Reuter grabbing the goal. Of these 15 matches, five ended in a draw and nine ended in defeat.
Head to head: 3 wins, 1 draw, 2 defeats – despite the defeat tonight, Atlético Madrid are still one of the only Spanish clubs that Borussia Dortmund have a positive head to head record against – the other being FC Málaga. (br)
