Lucky goal brought another victory to the aspiring title Atletico Madrid


The leader in the ranking of the Spanish championship Atletico Madrid added another 3 points to his assets after lying with 2:1 as a guest Granada in a match of the 23rd round. The victory did not come easily, as the decisive goal for 2:1 was scored with a serious dose of luck by Angel Korea in the 74th minute. Before that, Marcos Llorente was accurate in the 63rd minute for the mattresses, and in the 66th minute Angel Herrera scored a goal for Granada. The guests were again without Joao Felix and other players due to health protocols related to the coronavirus.

Madrid thus increased their lead at the top of the standings in front of Real Madrid to 8 points, and Barcelona is 11 behind Los Colchoneros. Barcelona and Atletico are also with a game less than Los Blancos. Granada ranks eighth.

In the 7th minute, the guests from Madrid missed a great chance to score. He opened up to Angel Korea. The Argentine received the ball in the penalty area of Granada, but failed to make a good enough shot and guard Rui Silva saved.

In the 11th minute Carlos Neva threatened the door of Atletico, and three minutes later there was still tension in front of the door of Jan Oblak, almost reaching Herman Sanchez to upset the Slovenian guard of Sofia. Shortly afterwards, Luis Suarez was sent to the penalty area of Granada, but did not play the situation in the best way. In the 30th minute, Suarez had a chance to give the mattresses an advance in the result, but Silva saved the shot of the Uruguayan star.

Two minutes after the break, Suarez hit the crossbar with an attractive shot from the air, and shortly afterwards a Granada player shot out from a dangerous position for Atletico.

In the 63rd minute Marcos Llorente gave Athletic the lead in the result. Llorente managed to overcome Silva with a shot on the ground in the near corner of the guard, and the Portuguese goalkeeper could probably have reacted better.

The guests kept their lead in the result only 3 minutes, as in the 66th Janhel Herrera equalized, also not without a certain amount of luck. After a mix-up in Atletico`s penalty area, the ball reached Herrera, who fired, ricocheting into the body of a mattress player, and Oblak was helpless and the ball ended up in the door.

However, relatively quickly, the team led by Diego Simeone again came out ahead in the result, and this happened with a huge dose of luck. Angel Korea tried to pass to his teammate, but the ball bounced off the body of a Granada player in an inescapable way for Rui Silva and the result was 1:2.

In the last minute Suarez came face to face with Rui Silva, but he failed to overcome it, and an ambush of the Uruguayan was also ordered. However, this did not prevent the guests from congratulating themselves on the valuable victory, after the team finished 2:2 at home with Celta (Vigo) in the last round.
