Watch: Atléti Fans Gave Their Side A Spine-Tingling Reception Outside The Team Hotel
By Gavan Casey

A couple of hundred Atlético Madrid fans gave their side an incredible reception outside the team hotel ahead of their 1-0 victory over Bayern Munich this evening.

The atmosphere inside the Vicente Calderón is famed for its feverish intensity, and tonight was no different as a truly sublime Saul goal gave the Spanish capital club a crucial edge ahead of their Champions League semi-final return leg in Munich next week.

But it was about nine hours before kick-off when the team rocked up to their hotel to a goosebump-inducing reception by fans, who seemed intent on channelling the spirit of Luis Aragonés and 1974 - a season which saw Atléti fall to Bayern in the European Cup final.

Flares, banners and a roadside serenading. As Liverpool and Dortmund fans proved in the Europa League, it's what European football is all about.

Cholo Simeone's men even stopped at the steps of the hotel to soak in and applaud some of the atmosphere.
