1-0. 15’. Koke beats Andrés with a crossed shot after receiving a pass from Torres inside the box.
2-0. 59’. Fernando Torres scores with a soft lob over Andrés after an assist from Koke.
3-0. 83’. Correa faces Andrés and beats him with his right leg.
With a once again devoted and sold out Calderón, with a multitude of children on their day, Atlético solved the game without stress and with practiced plays. Like the match against Espanyol, the Koke-Torres partnership work once again. First, it was Fernando who passed to the player from Vallecas so he could score the first one. And, in the second half, pass form our '6' that was lobbed by our '9' in a play that was identical to the one we scored against Barcelona at the Camp Nou.
It was a calm game, without many complications because the red and white team did its homework soon and that took the party from the stands to the pitch with an important win against a rival, Granada, who fought to avoid relegation. There was time for important details such as those from Correa, who was very active in the half hour he played, and who scored the 3-0 and could have scored some more. Three golden points in an exciting final stretch of the League. Now, we have to think about Wednesday’s match in San Mamés against Athletic.
