If you read Jose’s writing, you would never think that he is anything but professional. However, he is the joker of our team.

Atletico Madrid beat Eibar with a thumping 5-0 victory on Sunday at Wanda Metropolitano. Atleti were looking for a victory following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Real Betis in their previous game while Eibar lost 1-0 in the last match they played against Levante. After today’s result, Atleti are in 1st place, with 70 points from 33 matches, while Eibar sit in 20th, with 23 points from 33.

Atleti started the first half well, with Angel Correa opening the rout in the 42nd minute. Los Colchoneros then netted once more and increased their advantage thanks to a second effort from Angel Correa just before half-time, to take a 2-0 lead into half time.

Atleti started the second half with renewed vigour, with an early goal from Yannick Carrasco in the 49th minute. The momentum was now with Atleti, who then scored again through a goal from Marcos Llorente after 53 minutes to establish a 4-0. They then scored again, increasing their advantage thanks to a 2nd effort from Marcos Llorente, on 68 minutes to make it 5-0.

For Atleti, Moussa Dembele, Vitolo, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Lucas Torreira and Felipe, came on for Aleix Garcia, Unai Dufur, Kike, Jose Angel and Kevin Rodrigues. Eibar brought on Takashi Inui, Paulo Oliveira, Quique, Rafa Soares and Recio, to replace Aleix Garcia, Unai Dufur, Kike, Jose Angel and Kevin Rodrigues.

The referee booked Paulo Oliveira for Eibar.
