This Saturday Real Madrid beat Atlético 3-1, in a match in which the meringues add 3 points and take away from the “colchoneros” the 2nd place in the League. This also means the first defeat of the red-whites in their new home, the Wanda Metropolitano.
Real Madrid opened the scoring in the 16th minute with a spectacular Chilean from Casemiro inside the area, unstoppable for the goalkeeper Oblak.
The match in the first time was balanced for both, when Griezmman got the 1-1 in a one-on-one with Courtois at minute 25. However, before the end of the first half, Ramos put the whites on top once again 2-1 from the penalty point, thanks to a foul by Uruguayan José María Giménez on Vinicius Jr.
Already in the second half, Madrid became the owner of the match. The entry of Gareth Bale meant a new goal for the white house. The Welsh scored in the 74th and sealed the victory of Real Madrid against an Atlético that ended with 10, after the expulsion of Thomas Partey for a double yellow card in the 80th minute.
These 3 points, put the Madrid momentarily just 5 points behind the leader, Barcelona Football Club, which tomorrow will play its match of the day 23 against Athletic Bilbao.
