Atlético, easy winner of Valladolid, consolidates its 4th place


Continuation of the 18th day of La Liga with a duel of extremes between Atlético de Madrid, at the foot of the podium with its 4th place, against Valladolid, 17th and first relegated from the Spanish championship, at the Cívitas Metropolitano. Relegated to ten points from the podium, the Colchoneros began the meeting with the new recruit, Memphis Depay, on the bench and the traditional holders were aligned. Diego Simeone’s players took fifteen minutes to get into the rhythm of the game then made the difference in ten minutes to take a definitive advantage on the scoreboard. Alvaro Morata took advantage of a superb heel from Antoine Griezmann to deceive the opposing goalkeeper and open the scoring (18th, 1-0).

The French international then turned into a scorer after a cross from Nahuel Molina (23rd, 2-0). In all good shots tonight, Antoine Griezmann took charge of a free kick a few minutes later. At the reception, Mario Hermoso had to do it twice to deceive Jordi Masip (28th, 3-0). Much more offensive than usual, the Colchoneros ended the first period in peace. Returning from the locker room, Angel Correa once again deceived the Valladolid goalkeeper but his shot hit the two posts without crossing the line (66th). Antoine Griezmann’s teammates quietly managed their lead thereafter until the final whistle. In the standings, Atlético consolidates its 4th place and is seven points behind its main competitors to climb on the La Liga podium.
