Atlético de Madrid put on track the match against Osasuna in a minute, with Godín's header and the counterattack that Gameiro finished. The truth is that our team was playing a great game. The chances to score were red and white, with three warnings. First Gameiro, then Giménez, and later Correa. The last two were saved by Nauzet. In between, a penalty kicked by Roberto Torres which Oblak saved spectacularly.
The second half was a red and white monologue. Total control, just like the first half, although the third goal was yet to come. And it could have arrived in a collective play with Tiago's shot that Oier saved under the sticks. Oblak was a mere spectator in the second half, thanks to the excellent defensive work of the whole team. Carrasco closed the game in the last minute with a good goal. Important victory to advance positions in the table and overtake Villarreal, which was beaten by Alavés this week. Now, we have to switch our mind-sets to face next Wednesday’s King’s Cup in Salamanca against Guijuelo.
