Memphis Depay helped Atlético Madrid to victory against Granada on Monday. Partly due to a devastating blow from the substitute, the Spanish top club won the first match of the La Liga season: 3-1.

Atlético had a lot of trouble with Granada in the second half at 1-1, but Memphis broke the spell in the Wanda Metropolitano. The Orange international shot from 30 meters into the intersection of keeper André Ferreira’s goal.

Memphis came in for Álvaro Morata in the second company, who had signed for the opening goal just before half-time. Samu made the 1-1 on behalf of Granada, but then it was Memphis’ turn. Deep in injury time, Marcos Llorente provided the final chord.

The 29-year-old Memphis missed much of last season due to injuries. He was also missing from the Dutch national team in the final tournament of the Nations League at the beginning of June. There, the Orange stranded in the semifinals against Croatia.

The victory puts Atlético in the lead in La Liga, title competitor Real Madrid won 0-2 against Athletic Club on Saturday. Champion FC Barcelona lost points on a visit to Getafe on Sunday: 0-0.

Next Sunday, Atlético awaits an away match against Real Betis. After that, coach Diego Simeone’s team will compete against Rayo Vallecano (August 28) and Sevilla (September 3).
