Four crosses from the left, four headers, three goals and a crossbar. This could be summarized “tactical beating” that Diego Simeone’s Atlético de Madrid gave to Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid in the Spanish LaLigawith a 3-1 victory for Cholo’s team this Sunday at the Cívitas Metropolitano.
The mattress formula was of an effectiveness rarely seen, taking advantage of the Merengues defensive horrors when taking marks in the center of the area. After 3 minutes, Atlético’s first came: cross from Brazilian left back Samuel Lino and header from Álvaro Morata that escaped the Austrian David Alaba.
At 18, the same story: Saúl Ñíguez center from the left and appearance, also solitary, de Antoine Griezmann to win from above with his 1.75 meter in an area populated by defenders attracted by Morata. While the Frenchman celebrated, Alaba went crazy with signs in search of explanations.
But Real’s reaction was immediate: at 35 Toni Kroos He scored a great goal from outside and when the first half was over, the visitor celebrated the 2-2 but an advanced position invalidated the goal when it seemed that Atlético’s old story of suffering was about to be repeated.
It is seen that at halftime Ancelotti’s men talked about their lives and did not dedicate themselves to fixing defects, because Just 30 seconds into the second half, Ñíguez sent the cross and Morata headed alone to make it 3 to 1 while Alaba, once again in the photo, hit the grass and distributed the blame.. And as if that were not enough, at 53, Griezmann’s corner from the left and a header from defender Mario Hermoso, but hit the crossbar. If you don’t believe the white defense.
Cholo’s team closed very well with a two-goal lead and forced Real to look for a comeback with long-distance shots, more than anything. The most notable thing about the rest of the game was the kicking show that both teams put on, although no one was expelled.
With this result, Real lost its undefeated record and was third with 15 pointsbehind Barcelona and the surprising Girona, both with 16. Atlético, who started the full-back Nahuel Molina and the attacker Angel Correa playing the last 10 minutes (Rodrigo DePaulout due to injury) rose to fifth place, with 10 units.
