Atletico Madrid 2 –0 Real Sociedad Spain. Primera Division. 27 October 2018


The match: 2-0
Three days after the slap at Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League , the heaviest defeat of the Diego Simeone era (4-0), Atlético de Madrid rebounded perfectly in the Liga against Real Sociedad. The Colchoneros never shook but took time to open the scoring. Antoine Griezmann first failed to score a superb acrobatic recovery just above the bar (24th).
The captain of the quilts, Diego Godin, finally opened the scoring just before the break (45th).
Rodant in the box, the Uruguayan furiously took a right foot Angel Correa center. In the second half, Filipe Luis, who started half-time in the place of Lucas Hernandez, who felt a muscle discomfort , made the break. The Brazilian side, shifted to the left corner of the surface of Real Sociedad, propelled a superb shot wound right in the opposite corner.
Not very dangerous during the whole game, the Basques have never had the opportunity to return to the score. Atlético could have even increased the score, but Diego Costa (67), Rodri (81) and Godin (90) failed to convert their opportunities.

The fact: Savic avoids expulsion
At the start of the second period, while Atletico still lead one goal, Stefan Savic committed a very spectacular foul on Sangalli, who went straight to the goal of Oblak (52). Montenegrin hit the Real Sociedad player with the foot in the face. A gross fault that could have earned him an expulsion and force the Colchoneros to dispute 40 minutes outnumbered. But the referee of the meeting has judged differently and has only distributed a yellow card to Madrid.

The player: Godin showed the way
Like all his partners, Diego Godin had taken the water against Dortmund Wednesday in the Champions League. This Saturday, the Uruguayan showed a beautiful reaction of pride. As often imperial in defense (two interceptions, four clearances), the rock of Atlético turned into fox surfaces at the end of the first period to register his first goal of the season and allow his team to open the scoring . He could have offered himself a double at the very end of the match, but his control-hit sequence was pushed back by Moya, Real Sociedad's goalkeeper.
