Atlético lost points in the third round of the Spanish League. Diego Simeone’s team drew 2-2 with Villarreal.
It was the hosts from Madrid who set the tone of the match from the start. Luis Suarez, who played for the first time this season in a league match, tried his chances in the penalty area several times. Until the end of the first half, Atleti fired ten shots with one of his rivals’ attempts. But after the first half, the score was 0-0.
There was still a bit of controversy in the first three quarters of the hour. Angel Correa brutally attacked his opponent with his straight leg. The Argentine only received a yellow card.
The second half started with an earthquake. First, Manu Trigueros opened the result of the meeting with a beautiful bullet.
The joy of Unai Emery’s accusations did not last long. In the 56th minute, Luis Suarez equalized with Angel Correa’s pass.
A quarter of an hour before the end of the match, Villarreal again advanced. Fatal errors in the defense of Atleti were ruthlessly used by Arno Danjuma.
Atlético kept trying, launching more attacks. Matthews Cunha, who was brought from Hertha Berlin, got the chance to debut. However, Geronimo Rulli did well with several successful interventions. When it looked like Villarreal would finally take the lead, Issa Mandy scored a suicide in the last act of the match. The match ended in a draw.
