The Wanda Metropolitano witnessed the smooth running of the Atlético de Madrid that showed level despite the losses of Luis Suarez Y Lucas Torreira, in addition to the Mexican Hector Herrera. Thus, they beat 1-0 at Barcelona that ended with damaged morale by losing one of its fundamental men in the defense: Gerard Piqué.
The game began with an inspired Ángel Correa and creating the first danger. The intensity of the Colchoneros awarded them two cautions very early in the game. They were slightly superior, although on the other side Messi was trying to brush strokes.
The mattress goal after a great football
In the aggregate of the first half, Joao Felix appeared to help a teammate cover and recover the ball. Hence the play for Correa, who managed to serve long to Yannick Ferreira Carrasco. The Belgian managed to get around Piqué’s mark and then a bad start from Ter Stegen and lodge the ball in the back of the goal at 1-0.
The strategist Ronald Koeman made adjustments for the complement and on the court Messi challenged the rival goal with a shot that Jan Oblak diverted with a spectacular flight. At minute 62, things got more cloudy for the Blaugranas with Piqué’s terrible injury. Correa fell on the leg of the defender, the weight of the Madrilenian turned the knee of the defender, who left the field in tears.
The alarms went off and more changes came to try to balance the confrontation. However, Barça’s offensive could not be fixed despite the adjustments and without further ado, the game ended with the victory for Diego Simeone that was catapulted to second position and relegated the Blaugranas to the middle of the table.
