Atlético de Madrid won with suffering against Sporting thanks to a goal from Griezmann at the end. The match was even, with few opportunities to score with a well laid out Sporting that left almost no gaps to our team.
In the second half, Atlético came out determined to win the match. Little by little, the team got closer to Cuéllar. First it was Griezmann, with a double chance in the 65th minute to which the goalkeeper, formed in our ranks, responded to with two saves. Oblak was also a main character just afterwards with a monumental save to a shot from Jony. The game ended with a devoted team and Griezmann scored in the last opportunity beating Cuéllar.
