0-1. 26'. Koke touches the ball smoothly as Kameni comes out of his goal after receiving a ball that Torres was fighting for at the top, in a play that Koke had initiated.
0-2. 74'. Filipe Luis receives the ball in the box from Fernando Torres and chips it over Kameni.
An Atlético de Madrid with six players from the ranks in the starting team that wanted to continue the streak of consecutive wins in the League (Valencia, Granada and Sevilla) to continue in the fight for LaLiga's podium. And the truth is that the team came out very concentrated, without giving any concession to Málaga and always on the lookout at the top to try to score. And it was Koke who initiated a play with a through ball to Torres, who got rid of two rivals. However, Koke continued the play to cross in front of Kameni. A goal that was enough to finish ahead in the first half.
In the second half, there was a red and white dominance and control that was, little by little, undermining the rival until the final blow with only fifteen minutes to go for full-time. A spectacular play in which several players participated, with an assist of Fernando Torres to Filipe Luis, who defined with subtlety, making our team have a clear advantage in the match. An important victory for the Atlético that has won four consecutive games.
