Spanish giant Atletico, with our Jan Oblak guarding the goal, secured a 2-1 victory on home turf against the bottom-placed team Almeria, temporarily climbing to third place in La Liga.
The hosts took the lead in the sixth minute through Antoine Griezmann, but the referee, after reviewing the video footage, decided to disallow the goal due to an offside position. Just ten minutes later, Alvaro Morata dribbled past the goalkeeper and the visiting defense, putting Atletico in the lead. Five minutes later, Angel Correa continued the job, tapping the ball into an empty net after an exceptional move by Marcos Llorente, extending the home team’s advantage.
The final score was set thirty minutes before the end by Leo Baptisao, ensuring that Slovenian captain Jan Oblak unfortunately couldn’t keep his goal untouched for the third consecutive time, despite making four saves in the mentioned match.
Next up for the Rojiblancos is the final group stage match of the Champions League on Wednesday, welcoming Lazio from the eternal city as they vie for the top spot in Group E.
