Atlético crushes Cádiz and snatches the second from Madrid

round night for him Atletico Madrid. The mattresses, commanded by an imperial Antoine Griezmann —author of a double before half an hour into the game—, have gone over the Cadiz at the Cívitas Metropolitano (5-1) to snatch second place from Real Madrid (69 points to 68, with five games to go), on a day when the colchoneros have finally seen how they were whistled a penalty in his favor.

They have had to spend 33 days, but finally the Cholo Simeone team has been able to launch a maximum penalty from 11 meters. The manager was Yannick Carrascowhich made the provisional score rise 4-0, after Morata scored at the start of the second half and before the Nahuel Molina signed his little hand, thus eclipsing the great goal he had scored Choco Lozano in the previous play. In short, a great day for the rojiblanca parish, which for now can say that their team rules in the capital, at least for qualifying purposes in LaLiga. On matchday 18 he was 13 points behind Real Madrid, second then. In 33, fifteen later, the team of the Cholo Simeone He has advanced it one point above.

Atlético came out with the knife between their teeth and Griezmann He opened the can when barely a minute and four seconds had elapsed into the game. The best team of the second round with the player of the moment, a lethal combination for a Cádiz (35 points, one above salvation) that will still have many homework from now until the end of the course. A beautiful left-footed shot from the Frenchman to finish off Yannick Carrasco’s back pass with his left foot, after a couple of snails from the Belgian inside the area. Another day at the office for him. little Prince. It seems easy what he does, but it is not. Atlético, plagued by casualties (Oblak, Reinildo, Llorente, Memphis Depay and Savic), took the lead in no time.

Cádiz seemed to react with a deflected shot from Álvaro Negredo, one of the nine substitutions with which Sergio González appeared in the Metropolitan, and a goal well disallowed for offside to Momo Mbaye. But Atlético got their act together and that was the end of the Andalusian offensive, at least in the first half.

Before half an hour, at minute 26, the colchoneros scored their second goal. Again with the signature of Griezmann, who this time teamed up with his compatriot Thomas Lemar to once again beat Conan Ledesma with his left foot. There was more than an hour left in the game and all the fish was already sold in the Metropolitan. But even so, Atlético wanted more and had several good chances to score at halftime, but Ledesma came across Morata and a shot from the Madrid striker crashed off the crossbar. Cádiz could not be seen through Grbic’s goal, the substitute for the third game followed by Oblak.

Sergio moved the bench after the break, putting Choco Lozano on the field for Youba Diarra in a rather offensive substitution, but what came was 3-0. With the signature of Morata, this time yes. The man from Madrid received a pass from Mario Hermoso, who had all the time he wanted to think inside the area, and Morata finished off alone at the far post to sign his third goal in the last three games.

But for the party to be complete, a penalty was missing in favor and, oh miracle, it finally came after 33 days, thanks to the hand of Alcaraz inside the area. Soto Grado went to VAR and indicated the maximum penalty, which Carrasco He transformed with a shot close to the stick, unstoppable for Conan Ledesma.

Cádiz managed to close the gap with the great goal from Choco Lozano —an impressive right-footed shot from outside the area, extremely hard and unstoppable for Grbic—, but immediately came the immediate response from Nahuel Molina, in the next action, with 5-1. It was minute 72. Twenty minutes to go in which Cádiz came to have the ball, but without ever worrying the Croatian goalkeeper. Time for the stands of the Metropolitano to live a real party, seeing how theirs rule (for now and at least until the next day of the League, the second weekend of May) in the capital.
