Atlético de Madrid took the field of the Gran Canaria stadium with the conviction of seeking a win that would allow it to stay at the very top of the table. And after a fast-paced start, Las Palmas got our team in trouble with a double play that Oblak managed to save, with shot from Tana and Dani Castellano. However, the response was swift and a cross from the right by Juanfran arrived at the feet of Filipe Luis who put the ball in the net.
But the second half made quite clear what all of Europe knows. It is difficult to create scoring chances to the League leader and only Roque Mesa could have scored but he shot so tight to the post it missed by very little. Just after that, Koke recovered a ball that was served on a silver platter so Griezmann could sentence the team from the Canary Islands. And when the match was about to end, another goal by the French with the same assist partner. Three golden points to begin the second round before returning to the Cup next Wednesday in Vigo against Celta.
