Atleti see out perfect pre-season with win over Juventus
Our team earned another pre-season win in the last game before the start of LaLiga.
Atleti earned a 2-1 win over Juventus in Stockholm on Saturday thanks to a Joao Félix brace.
Chiellini had the first chance of the game from a corner, but Oblak made a great save to deny the Italian. Koke almost scored later, when his shot was cleared off the line, but our team took the lead shortly thereafter through Joao Félix. The Portuguese forward volleyed the ball into the back of the net following a cross from Trippier. The match became extremely interesting as Khedira equalised soon for Juventus, but Joao Félix once again restored the lead for Atleti with an outstanding goal. Lemar provided the assist with an exceptional pass.
The Italian side were close to equalising after the break, but Douglas Costa and Rabiot’s shots struck the post. Simeone changed the whole team in the second half. One of the substitutes. Riquelme, also scored an extraordinary goal as his shot from outside the box went just wide. There were no more big chances and, in the end, Atleti won 2-1 to close the pre-season with a 100% win rate.
