Atletico Madrid thanked Griezmann after the victory against Real Sociedad and achieved their fourth consecutive success in the league.
The Colchoneros continue in La Liga thanks to their Frenchman Antoine Griezmann. In a controlled first half, Atlético opened the scoring through Samuel Lino (21st). Thanks to Koke’s through ball, the Brazilian adjusted past the Real goalkeeper to give his team the advantage. The Madrilenians dominated, with 7 shots including two on target and Koke even found the post just before the break.
a sociedad with feedback
If Axel Witsel also finds the post after returning from the locker room, Real Sociedad increases the intensity and takes advantage of the spaces left by Atlético. The spectators thought they would be awarded a penalty corner after Morata’s handball, but the referee did not validate the decision after consulting VAR. We had to wait for a Mikel Oyarzabal header from deep to see the visitors equalise. A flat foot that deceives Oblak (72nd).
Griezmann as savior
Atletico Madrid do not intend to miss this meeting in the clash between them and sixth place in La Liga. Especially when we consider the two “comes” made by the Colchoneros against Cadiz (leading 2-0 to win 3-2) and Feyenoord in the Champions League (leading twice with the score and winning 3-2). Know about. Serving in the area, Antoine Griezmann shot with the outside of his foot, but his shot was blocked by Carlos Fernández with his hand. Uncontested penalty, converted by the French (89th). The best player at the moment for this team is actually the Frenchman – he has scored four goals in the last five games in all competitions – and allows Atlético to consolidate their fourth place with a game to spare.
