Atletico beat in the central match of the 6th round of the Spanish La Liga. The match at the Metropolitano Arena in Madrid ended with a score of 3:1.
Diego Simeone's team managed to score two quick goals. Already in the fourth minute of the meeting, Alvaro Morata headed the ball into the corner of Kepa Arrizabalaga's goal after a cross made by Samuel Lino.
In the 18th minute, the "mattresses" doubled their advantage - Antoine Griezmann closed the pass from Saul Niguez with a header.
In the 35th minute, the "creamy" reduced the gap in the score - Toni Kroos removed the opponent from behind the penalty area and sent the ball low into the near corner from outside the penalty area.
However, immediately after the break, Atletico regained a two-goal lead. Morata scored a double, striking a well-aimed header after Niguez's pass.
Thus, the "mattresses" rehabilitated sensationally for the defeat in the previous round of La Liga from Valencia (0:3) of Ukrainian forward Roman Yaremchuk.
Atletico (10 points) climbed to fifth place in the Spanish championship. Real Madrid lost points for the first time this season to the Primera División and are third with 15 points.
