0-2. 74'. Griezmann finishes a good collective play after Gameiro's assist.
Very matched game at Ipurua between two teams that played very intensely from the first minute. The pace was frantic and the battle in the midfield was tremendous. Few chances to score in the first 45 minutes. Only Adrián's shot saved by Moyá on 22 minutes and another by Griezmann in the 37th, which went wide by very little, were the chances to score.
In the second half, the goals arrived. First came Saúl’s after a corner kick, and then it was Griezmann who scored again in the League after a play with Gameiro. Atlético was intelligent, knew how to play the game against a tough and complicated rival and scored in the key moments, knocked out to team from Guipuzcoa. Important victory in the first League match of 2017. On Tuesday, we play our next match, but in the King’s Cup, against Las Palmas at the Vicente Calderón.
