Atletico beat Granada with a thumping 2-1 victory on Saturday at the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes. With both teams drawing in their previous fixtures, they were keen to pick up points. Granada wanted to continue adding points following a disappointing 2-2 draw with Levante in their previous game. Atletico Madrid secured a point against Celta Vigo in their previous match. As things stand, Granada and Atletico Madrid are 8th, (30 points) and 1st, (54 points), spots respectively, after 23 matches.

After an uneventful first half, Atletico Madrid continued to pile on the pressure the second half and were rewarded, following a goal from Marcos Llorente, 63 minutes in. However, the good form didn’t last for long. An equalizer from a goal from Yangel Herrera in the 66th minute brought Granada level. Atletico Madrid reestablished their lead thanks to a goal from Angel Correa in the 75th minute to establish the 2-1, which sealed the victory for the visitors.

Both teams used all their substitutes. For Granada Yangel Herrera, Maxime Gonalons, Antonio Puertas, Alberto Soro and Domingos Quina came on for Yan Eteki, Angel Montoro, Robert Kenedy, Darwin Machis and Dimitri Foulquier, while Atletico brought on Sime Vrsaljko to replace Geoffrey Kondogbia.

The referee booked five players from Atletico Madrid, Luis Suarez, Saul Niguez, Stefan Savic, Koke and Yannick Carrasco.

Granada will next travel to Huesca, while Atletico Madrid will face Levante at home.
