Atleti earned a 1-0 win at Leganés on Sunday thanks to a second half goal from Vitolo.
Our team began the game flying and attacked the home side’s goal from the first minute. Morata had a very early chance which went just wide following a very nice touch from Koke. Our number 9 had another good chance half an hour later, as a perfect Trippier cross found him and the Spaniard almost lobbed the keeper.
Atleti collected two very good chances right after the break, the best of which was a Joao Félix volley from inside the box following a cross from Koke. It was a great chance, but Leganés responded brilliantly through a free-kick that struck the crossbar. And immediately afterwards, it was our team who hit the post as a Morata cross was headed towards his own goal by Rosales. Shortly thereafter, Simeone made his first substitution as Hermoso made was for Vitolo. And it was the Spanish winger who finally put us in the lead following an assist from Joao Félix and earned us a 1-0 win to make it two out of two in LaLiga.
