This Saturday evening, on the San Mames meadow, it was hard to recognize the current Spanish champion. Although Atletico de Madrid were officially handed over to their neighbor Real Madrid, which is titled this Saturday, the team of Antoine Griezmann lost to the most interested athlete Pipo.
Inaki Williams, everyone shot
Diego Simeone’s players quickly showed their limits against the Passes. From the 8th minute, Inaki Williams overtook Jose Maria Kiminis, before Mario Hermoso scored against his side. The start of a long test for Madrid’s defense against the Spanish will-o-the-whistle, which provided the luxury of doubling the race with Panenka just before the hour mark (56th).
Five minutes earlier, Antoine Griezmann had equalized after a free kick on the bar (51st). One of the few eruptions of Atletico’s insurgency, however, was that Korea found the post in overtime.
With the defeat, Los Blancos could see Betis coming into fourth place if they win at Getafe on Monday. Bilbao’s Basque sends them back to seventh, Villarreal and four Real Sociedad to sixth.
