0-1. 62’. Correa finishes a good pass of Fernando Torres from inside the box.
0-2. 77’. Fernando Torres finishes delicately as Riesgo comes out after a pass from Correa.
Éibar came out very strong in the match but as the minutes went by, our guys started to become the owners of the ball and the opportunities. Vietto was the first to warn Riesgo, although it was Jackson who forced the local goalkeeper to divert the shot of the Colombian. Saúl Berjón was the only one to worry Oblak in the first half.
After the break, Simeone took no time to make three changes. Two during the half-time, Óliver Torres for Koke and Fernando Torres for Jackson Martínez. And the third with half an hour to go. And they were key substitutions because when Correa had not even been a minute on the pitch, he received a masterful pass from Fernando Torres inside the box, he dribbled the centre-back and shot past Riesgo.
The match was like Atlético likes it and on minute 77, Correa returned Fernando Torres the favour with a sensational pass that el Niño delicately finished, with a shot that reminded of the one that gave Spain the European Championship in 2008. Great fixture of an Atlético de Madrid that has achieved an important victory by closing a week with two wins, one in the Champions League against Galatasaray, and this one in Éibar.
