 Atlético de Madrid gave its fans a tribute on Supporters’ Clubs Day. A gale of plays, chances and goals to finish with Granada resisting. The team from Granada got ahead early with their first intent but Carrasco turned the score in the final stretch of the first half with two goals.

He then rounded his superb match with a fantastic third goal. And, almost immediately after that, Gaitán, who had been two minutes on the field, scored the 4-1 from a very complicated position. A match that was already decided with half an hour to go and that served Simeone to give rest to Koke, Griezmann and Gameiro. On Wednesday, the Champions returns and it will be the first of two games against Rostov, this one in Russia. But before the end, there was time to see another three great goals, Gaitán's second one, one from Correa and another one from Tiago.
