After losing their last 3 La Liga games, Atlético de Madrid moved south to face Granada, a team on a slightly more positive dynamic after a catastrophic start. And this match of the 18th day of the championship ended with a 2-1 victory for the local team which puts the formation of Diego Simeone in the hard.
The meeting started off well for the Colchoneros, with a golazo from João Félix from the second minute. But very quickly, Granada equalized with another nice goal, the work of Darwin Machis. The debates were quite lively, and Felix even thought to score a double, before the goal was refused. In the second period, the Andalusians took the lead following a good counter-attack concluded by veteran Jorge Molina on the hour mark. The score did not budge, and Atlético is indeed in crisis even if he remains fifth and therefore close to the Champions League positions.
