Liga BBVA | J34 | Atlético de Madrid vs Elche

Absolutely horrendous football game. First half was so bad. They improved in the second, Villa missed a penalty, Miranda did a MIIIIIIIRAAAANDAAAA and Diego Costa scored on the second penalty.

Can't for my life understand why the hell Simeone didn't exploit Elche's left-back position earlier.

Oh well. Three new points in the bag. One of five finals completed. On to the next.

I guess the players must be really feeling it. In a few of your recent match day threads you've commented that the game as a spectacle was poor to put it lightly. Understandable given the efforts they've been putting it.

atletiiiiiiiii!!!!

Previously known as Maximiliano.

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 =

It's not about the spectacle when you're trying to win the league with 5 times less in terms of budget compared to your rivals. There's no such thing as a spectacle then. Teams don't bother playing when they come to Vicente Calderón and when they play Atleti in general since Levante in late December. There's simply so much at stake for many of them that they can't open up and try to get a result by playing. The important thing is that the team responded with enough and the crowd once again showed up in the best possible way.

Simeone messed up tonight with the system. Took his responsability, changed things around. All subs were involved. Raúl García got a penalty. José Sosa assisted Miranda's goal. That's what a great coach does.

Atleti should've put away this game in the second half through Villa's penalty but he missed another one. The team had good chances to score on as well but they didn't take them. Then it's always bound to be really even. Elche in general is a team that's hard to beat and Atleti beat them in similar fashion away from home, so it's not strange that it was tough.
