A share of points at the Power Horse Stadium

The team coached by Simeone drew against the Andalusian team in the game corresponding to the 17th matchday of LaLiga.

The points were shared at the Power Horse Stadium in a match with a high tempo and constant arrivals for both teams.

The game started with two teams that were very active from the start, with Atlético de Madrid managing to reach the area defended by Fernando and Almería looking to strike on the counter-attacks. Eighteen minutes in, Kondogbia received the ball in midfield, spotted Griezmann unmarked and gave him the ball, but the Frenchman cleverly let the ball run through for Correa to receive the pass from the midfielder. The recent World Cup winner faced Fernando and beat him to make the score 0-1. After the goal, the home side stepped up the pressure. The game was still very open, with split balls in all areas of the pitch. It was precisely in a split ball that the ball came to Robertone, who with a precise cross was able to assist El Bilal Touré, who with a powerful header tied the game.

The second half started with a lot of pace with both teams coming forward. When the changes were made, Almeria stepped up a gear, looking determinedly for Oblak's goal, although the response from the bench again levelled the intensity. On 74 minutes Reguilón filtered a pass towards Marcos Llorente, who had metres to run. The midfielder reached the edge of the box and connected with Morata, who shot at goal, but Fernando again appeared to save his team. Despite Atleti attempts, the score remained unchanged in Almería.

The final whistle saw the points shared between the two teams, leaving Atleti in fourth place with 28 points. The next match for the Red & White team will be next Wednesday 18 January in the match corresponding to the Round of 16 of the Copa del Rey against Levante at the Ciutat de Valencia.
