The champion Atletico (Madrid) reminded of himself with a big match and the famous turn of “Wanda Metropolitano”.
The “Mattresses” beat Valencia 3: 2 in a unique match, which they lost until the last 90 minutes.
However, the boys of Cholo Simeone showed the character that in the last ten years has made them one of the most unpleasant rivals for any European grandmaster, leading them to two Spanish titles.
In recent months, this character seemed lost. In less than two months, Atletico lost five times in La Liga, and in the last week lost to the Spanish Super Cup, dropped out of the Cup tournament.
Yunus Musa and Hugo Duro scored for the “bats”, and Cholo Simeone and the fans simply did not believe in what was happening and the way the players in red and white teams play.
After the break, however, a completely different Atletico came on the field, who played much better in attack, and in the 64th minute Matheus Cunha returned the “mattresses” in the match.
Until the end, however, a new goal never fell, and in the last 90 minutes it seemed that Atletico would still lose this match.
Then came a crazy three minutes, in which we saw a memorable turn.
First in the 91st minute Angel Correa was in the right place to score the ball deflected by the goalkeeper for 2: 2, and two minutes later Mario Hermoso on an empty net made a complete turnaround and brought Atletico success with 3: 2.
Thus, the champions remain fourth with 36 points, three ahead of the fifth Real Sociedad.
Today in La Liga we saw another great match, in which the main competitor of Real (Madrid) for the first place – Sevilla – was involved.
The Andalusians made 2: 2 as Dimakin’s Celta players, which was an unexpected wrong step in the battle for the top.
Thus, Sevilla is three points behind Real, but with a game more than the Kings.
However, the situation could have been far more complicated for the Andalusians, who were 0: 2 behind at halftime.
However, “Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan” kept its status of an impregnable fortress, because with goals from Papo Gomez and Oliver Torres, the Andalusians reached the final 2: 2. Video from the match see on MAXSport.live.
