Joao Felix hits brace as Atletico Madrid win at Osasuna
Convincing victory of Atletico Madrid against Osasuna in a contested match at El Sadar. The red-whites were led by a great Joao Felix who scored two goals and could have made a hat-trick of not having crashed into the post on a penalty. The first of the Portuguese had already arrived after converting a maximum penalty [Osasuna 1-3 Atlético de Madrid].
Osasuna tried until the end and cut differences with a Goal by Budimir in the 80th minute, but Lucas Torreira’s score near the end of the match did justice to an Atleti who was superior, especially in punch, although he was able to close the crash much earlier, as the mattresses overcaveed in the second half.
The match began somewhat out of control with the two teams looking for the goal from the initial beep. Enric Gallego about to put the first in the 2nd minute of the match, but Atletico did not get around and responded with a koke occasion,who nearly took advantage of a good boarding school of Marcos Llorente on the right to make the first. The two teams went out to open grave.
Disputes between the two sets marked the initial bars, as did the innings per band. Both Osasuna and Atleti sought to hurt them from the sides. Although the Navarrese painting enjoyed the possession of the spherical, the red-whites did not suffer, and nearby they were to make the first one again with an unbeatable occasion of Joao Félix in the 25th minute. The Portuguese did not take advantage of a large pass of angel correa’s death and yet in favor he could not connect well with the spherical when he only had to push it inside goal.
Osasuna quickly wanted to respond with a distant shot from Roncaglia that was about to surprise Oblak. The red defender controlled it with his chest and without dropping it impaled it violently, but left high for very little. Locals maintained the weight of the game while Cholo’s team entered the cons and speed. Arrasate’s had a new approach after a left-wing entrance and a shot at the second stick that may have opened the scoring, but the ball went away by rubbing the pole.
Joao Felix hits first
The one who did open the score in the 43rd minute was Joao Felix. The Portuguese striker scored the first goal of the penalty match. Vitolo received a pass precisely from Joao Félix and sneaked down the left profile of the U.S. area. Just as he reached the baseline, very close to the small area, Roncaglia charged him from behind knocking him down. The schoolboy didn’t hesitate, maximum penalty. And Joao Felix did not waste the gift to put the Atleti ahead before half-time.
After the resumption, the Cholo Simeone went on a tromba with the intention of closing the match. In the 46th minute, hands in the Osasuna area were decreed again as a penalty after consultation of the VAR. This time, however, Joao Felix was not right. He repeated a level throw, adjusted to his left, but the ball crashed into the pole. Correa sent the reject high. And four minutes later, it was the Argentine who crashed into the stick after a good shot from the front.
Atletico had come out with another side to the second half while Osasuna tried to shake off the gale, although he was giving too many chances and leaving too many spaces behind his defense. Again Correa and Vitolo had the second in their boots, but both they forgave.
The one who again did not forgive was the red-white star Joao Félix, who received a sensational pass from Correa in depth to score the second with a dry shot at half height and glued to the short stick of Sergio Herrera’s goal. Now, the Cholo breathed calmer in the band and saw victory closer than with the 0-1.
Osasuna doesn’t give up
However, Osasuna did not give up and continued to go upstairs to look for the so much that it would cut differences and allow them to dream, at least, of the tie. He first spotted Roberto Torres with a big forehand from outside the area by boat soon, but the Navarrese end encountered Oblak’s cool stretch. However, in the 81st minute, Budimir came to the head. Osasuna’s striker took advantage of a side centre to win Savic’s game and reduce the disadvantage.
The Arrasate dreamed of the draw, but already in the final stretch, Lucas Torreira put the final sentence with impressive left-hander from within the area that was his first goal as a player for Atletico Madrid and the ultimate tranquility. Finally, the red-whites, dressed this Saturday in phosphoric green, took the three points of El Sadar.
