After a matched first half, Atlético de Madrid went out for the match in the second half and began to dominate. Little by little, Simeone’s team made more intents towards Sergio’s area until a fantastic pass from Griezmann from the right was finished by Koke an accurate shot from the box. Far from being content, Atleti went for more and Carrasco suffered a penalty by Hugo Mallo when he was about to finish in front of Sergio.
But our team wanted more and Saúl, who played a big game, made a golden pass to Griezmann so the French could open his scoring this season, sentencing the match. Shortly before, Gameiro had given a warning by hitting the post after a free kick in front of Sergio. The French scored again before the end to round off a great game from our team. Correa closed the landslide when the match was about to finish. First win in this League that serves to boost our confidence for next Tuesday’s match in Eindhoven against PSV.
