Atlético de Madrid comes out in extremis in Girona
Atlético de Madrid did not deliver their best game of the season, this Monday in Girona, but they had the merit of believing in it until the end. And was rewarded with a late goal from Alvaro Morata, validated by the VAR, in added time (90th + 2). Thanks to the tenth achievement this season of the Spanish striker, entered during the game, the Colchoneros resume third place in La Ligathree points ahead of Real Sociedad.
Oblak in a great evening
They can thank their goalkeeper Jan Oblak, author of several saves, including a magnificent one on a distant attempt by David Lopez (69th). Slightly advanced, the Slovenian goalkeeper felt the blow when he saw his opponent trigger a lob from the center line. He narrowly managed to smack the ball for a corner.
Previously, neither Antoine Griezmann (21st and 78th), nor Memphis Depay (24th and 37th), had been skillful enough to allow their team to lead in the score. Diego Simeone’s players nevertheless have a ninth game without defeat, a series they had not achieved since February 2021.
