In the current season, Lalica plays Atletico Madrid Checkers. Success is intertwined with failure. This means that before the start of the game, Los Golkoneros was only 7th in the table. However, in the conflict with Levante, they are undeniably preferred. Their rivals have not even won a single match this year.
From the first whistle, Diego Simeone’s team got the better of him. Levante gave the initiative to the rivals and established himself in low defense. Atletico quickly broke it. Already in the 12th minute, Antoine Griezmann found himself well in the penalty area and he led his team with a head shot.
Atletico hit and Levante equalized at the end of the first half. Luis Suarez made a mistake in his own penalty area. Enis Bharti approached “Eleven” and probably turned it into a goal.
The picture of the game did not change in the second half. Atletico continued to win and tried to score the second goal. It came in the 76th minute. Its author was Matthias Cunha, who used Rodrigo de Paul’s excellent vertical pass and easily defeated goalkeeper Levante.
Late in the season, Atletico Madrid had to do without a coach as Diego Simeone received a second yellow card and was sent back to the stand.
However, this is not the end of emotions. Renan Lodi played illegally in his own penalty area, and the referee – after analyzing the VAR system – referred a penalty kick to Levante. Enis Bharti defeated John Oblock for the second time and ensured a valuable balance for his team.
Atletico advanced to 6th place in the standings. He is already five points behind current leader Real Sociedad. Levante, on the other hand, continues his unbeaten run and is in the exit zone.
In other matches on Thursday, Real Sociedad beat Zelda Vigo 2-0, while Granada drew 1-1 with Getafe.
Rice – Atletico Madrid 2: 2 (1: 1)
Goals: Bharti (37 – rz. K., 90 – rz. K.) – Griezmann (12), Cunha (76)
