Liga BBVA | J22 | Racing vs Atlético de Madrid

I just can't believe Atlético couldn't score a goal, despite all effort and chances the team kept creating. Tońo had ten saves tonight and some unbelieveable. This is probably the best game Atlético have played since Simeone took charge of the team and it showed right from the start, however, the most vital thing was lacking; finishing. When a player like Falcao ends up hitting the outside of the post while having a open goal chance, then that should sum up this game.

23-6 were the shots, Atléti hit the target ten times without converting which simply isn't good enough in terms of finishing.

Diego was brilliant tonight, deserved to get a goal, hit the post, had six decisive passes which lead to good chances. Gabi won the midfield battle and has played well two games in a row now, meanwhile a guy like Filipe continues to play on a good level. The whole defence was good again, only allowed one or two shots on target and Courtois gets his six consecutive clean sheet.

Just a freaking shame we couldn't finish them off.

Aupa Atleti !!!!

Yo me voy al Manzanares
al estadio Vicente Calderon
donde acuden a millares
los que gustan del futbol de emocion
Porque luchan como hermanos
defendiendo su colores
en un juego noble y sano
derrochando coraje y corazon
Atleti, Atleti, Atletico de Madrid...

Real =
Barca =

Played well, but no cigar. both posts hit from close range. On the line saves, unlucky two games in a row now. Falcao should also have scored against Valencia last week. But still undefeated in 5 games since Simeone has joined. I have not seen such consistency in the league from Atleti. The club will need to hang onto Simeone at all costs. Born to coach.
