Bayer Leverkusen let Atletico Madrid off the hook by failing to secure a bigger advantage than their 1-0 win in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 match this week, the Spanish side's coach Diego Simeone said.After falling behind to Hakan Calhanoglu's 57th-minute strike, Atletico then had to play the final quarter of an hour at the BayArena with 10 men after midfielder Tiago picked up a second yellow card.Simeone, who led the Spanish champions to the final of Europe's elite club competition last season, will have to reshuffle his team for Leverkusen's visit to the Calderon as center-back Diego Godin is suspended along with Tiago.
