Alavés knock out Atlético, which closes a week to forget

This Sunday, Deportivo Alavés took advantage of the European hangover that occurred against Atlético de Madrid elimination from the Champions League and beat them 2-0 in a great defensive match, in which they barely gave the colchoneros any options in the thirty-second matchday of LaLiga EA Sports.

Carlos Benavídez in the 15th minute and Luis Rioja in stoppage time, with a spectacular volley, rounded off a great defensive game by the Albiazules where Antonio Sivera also appeared with two great saves in the second half. This triumph approaches the Alavés notably to the permanencewhile the rojiblancos are left with 61 points and without securing a place in the Champions League.

The game started something bronco con hard tickets on both sides, which resulted in two yellow cards for the locals, very little real play. The sparks at the beginning gave way to the Colchonero monopoly with the ball but without chances. Just some dead ball approach.

15 minutes into the game, Carlos Benavídez scored the first goal in the afternoon by collecting a rebound on the front and adjusting it to the left post of Jan Oblak, who stretched unsuccessfully. The goal knocked out Atlético, who were close to receiving the second after a good counterattack from the right wing that left Giuliano Simeone alone against the red and white goalkeeper, but his shot went over the visiting goal.

The colchoneros were recovering, but it was difficult for them to overcome a well planted local defense. Antonio Sivera barely appeared on one occasion, while Diego Pablo Simeone left his voice on the wing to try to correct the position of his team, which was not comfortable.

The game was played in the center of the field and the set piece began to be an important weapon in a clash with many interruptions. Atlético finished the first half better, which closed with controversy. Gil Manzano declared a penalty for handball in favor of Alavés, but annulled it after seeing the images on the VAR.

Those of Simeone They continued to suffer after the break. Alavés continued to defend itself and tried to surprise its rival with speed. Kike García tried with a good finish but was unable to overcome Oblak. The red and whites were gaining ground and they played closer to Antonio Sivera’s goal, who didn’t have much work either.

The Albiazul defensive work was commendable, while the colchoneros did not give up. Samu Lino had the clearest shot with the 1-0 lead 15 minutes from time, but he found the Alavés goalkeeper, well positioned, who saved the shot safely. Antonio Sivera appeared again in the 82nd minute to avoid the goal of Ángel Correa, who tried with a sharp cross shot close to the post. It was the worst moment for Alavés, but between the defense and the Alicante goalkeeper they overcame it with flying colors.

When Atlético was pressing the most, they arrived Alavés’ second goal in injury time. A great counterattack was culminated by Luis Rioja with a spectacular volley that slipped into Oblak’s corner and thus closed the match.
