The day after El classic, which is considered the match of all matches in Spain, the captain of the Slovenian national team was also at work in La Liga. Jan Oblak who was in Madrid with his Atletico team hoste Alavesa.
The Rojiblancos won the face-off almost routinely, and their net minder from Škofja Loka didn’t have too much to do throughout the whole game. Rodrigo Riquelme and Alvaro Morata scored in the first half to secure victory for the home team at the Metropolitano Stadium.
Oblak was in 83rd minute awarded a yellow card for opposing the referee . The visitors failed to get a single shot on target and just when it looked as if the Slovenian captain would keep his net intact, it was the visiting midfielder Ander Guevara who scored from virtually the last attempt of the match to make the final score 2-1 Atletico.
With this win, Atleti climb to third place in the standings, three points behind city rivals Real and Girona with a game to spare, while also boasting the second best defence and the best attack in the championship.
