Atletico took the lead in the 29th minute but goals either side of half-time from Dominik Szoboszlai and Mergim Berisha gave Salzburg the advantage.

After losing their first match in this season's competition to Bayern Munich, Diego Simeone's side could ill-afford more dropped points, especially at home against theoretically weaker opponents.

Felix drew them level in the 52nd minute, though, and it seemed a matter of time before they re-took the lead at the Wanda Metropolitano.

However, they had to wait until the 85th minute to seal the three points, Felix again the scorer.

The win means Atletico move to second place in the group with three points. Bayern lead the way with six points, while Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moscow have one each.
