With a great shot of more than 25 meters, Memphis Depay contributed to a victory for his club Atlético Madrid. In the first round of La Liga, Granada was defeated 3-1.

Depay, who has not played an official match since April due to a calf injury, started on the bench at Estadio Metropolitano. Fifteen minutes after the break, the Orange international came in for Alvaro Morata, who had made it 1-0 at the end of the first half.

Depay was only on the field for a few minutes when Samu scored the 1-1 for Granada. But the former PSV player’s highlight followed in the 67th minute.


Depay was played by Yannick Carrasco more than 25 meters from goal and lashed out hard. The ball disappeared into the intersection behind goalkeeper Andre Ferreira, who dived in vain.
