2-1.  71’. Alcácer scores the penalty called for a foul of Godín on Mustafi.

Atlético de Madrid was clearly superior to a Valencia that hanged on until the first goal. Nuno’s team saw how our guys created chances, one after the other, until Jackson Martínez took advantage of a ball that was not reached by the centre-backs of Valencia to sentence Jaume. Atlético shifted up a gear in the match and was looking for the second one before half-time and it came with a work of art from Carrasco. He got the ball doing a slalom, and from the top, scored a goal which made the Calderón stand.

This is how the first half ended, with applause from the stands and a clear superiority against a direct rival. After the half-time, Jaume Doménech saved his team from a wider margin with saves of genuine merit. But the third didn't arrive and rather rigorous penalty got Valencia into the game. But it was momentary because our guys kept on with their pressure and domain until the end. Valencia’s goalkeeper saved his team from a bigger defeat. Great match from our guys. The team finishes the round in third place.
