Atlético de Madrid and Osasuna were both trying to make the most of their chances of achieving their respective objectives. Atleti were just one point away from a place in the next Champions League, while Osasuna were looking to qualify for a European competition place. With these premises, Simeone's team completed a good first half, with two goals disallowed to Morata for offside and three balls hitting the posts.
Atlético insisted so much that just before half-time they got their deserved reward in the form of a goal. Saúl, on the ball out, released Griezmann on a counter-attack that ended with a pass to Carrasco inside the six-yard box and he shot past Sergio Herrera. A great goal that filled the Cívitas Metropolitano with joy but was marred by the blow suffered by Morata in the centre circle in a collision with David García that sent him off to the dressing room dazed and he was eventually replaced by Correa after the break.
In the second half, Osasuna seemed to have woken up from their lethargy in attack and looked more in Grbic's domain. In the 53rd minute it was Aimar who headed the ball into the path of the keeper. But the response from our team was convincing. De Paul invented a masterful pass over the defence for Saúl who, after controlling the ball with his chest, launched a right-footed shot that flew into the top corner of the net. Saúl, who scored the winner in the first leg against Osasuna at El Sadar, scored again against the Navarrese.
In the 82nd minute, Griezmann took a superb touch for De Paul, who again donned the assistant's cape to set up a golden ball for Correa to make it 3-0. That was the end of the match, with a goal that mathematically certified the pass to the Champions League for next season, with the team doing the lap of honour around the stadium thanking the fans for their support. On Wednesday, the next match at the RCDE Stadium against Espanyol.
