Mestalla – the stadium that became hell of Real Madrid was not difficult for another Madrid team. Atletico Madrid won another match and it was tough. Simeone’s players did everything and took three points from Valencia.
What’s wrong with Valencia?
Team that outperformed the current winner of La Liga, could not keep up. After a big win against Real Madrid, they could not get another win. Lost many points in two consecutive matches. The international break was very bad for the host team. Atletico Madrid played a very open match and it was a chance for Valencia. Unfortunately to the fans, the team could not perform well. We should note that Atletico Madrid has an amazing run in La Liga. First of all, the team won a match against Barcelona for the first time in years. It was the first La Liga win against Barca under Simeone. Also, keep in mind that Atletico Madrid has not lost the match this season in Spain. It means that the team can’t be stopped even by Messi and co. Even more – Atletico has five matches in a row in La Liga. Right now the team is in second position. Sociedad has the same points as Atleti but Simeone’s team has to play one more game.
Own goal from Valencia’s player
Atletico Madrid scored only one goal and it was an own goal from Valencia’s player. Valencia was playing good defense but they conceded an easy goal. Atletico Madrid had a perfect first half. They had 4 shots on target in the first half and only two in the second. Overall, Diego Simeone’s team deserved three points. Atletico Madrid was attacking and defending well. Maybe it’s time for Atleti to shine and win another La Liga.
