Barcelona loses again to Atletico Madrid as their poor form ongoes.
It was an interesting match between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, that could as well decide the fate of the league. The match kicked off, with Atletico Madrid on the attacking end, with Lemar missing a good opportunity although he’s made the score 1-0 in the twenty-fourth minute when Joao Felix and Luis Suarez showed great ball resilience to combine and tee up Thomas Lemar for the finish. Barcelona tried to come-back to the game after Coutinho missed a glorious chance after his half volley flew inches past the post.
It was not long before Atletico Madrid regrouped and scored the second goal where Felix showed great attacking movement to evade a few challenges and pass the ball to Thomas Lemar, who saw Luis Suarez open in the box and sent in a cross. Luis Suarez received the pass with great ball control and sent Ter Stegen the wrong way to make the score 2-0. The La Liga champions went into the halftime break as the favorites.
The second half was quiet as Barcelona was now on the attacking end having introduced attacking options that include Ansu Fati. Atletico Madrid was forced to sit back, something that they are natural and good in. Atletico Madrid absorbed the attack and the score ended 2-0 win for Atletico Madrid. This meant that Atletico Madrid now sits at second place in the La Liga table with 17 points as Barcelona is ninth in the La Liga table with only twelve points. Barcelona has in the recent games displayed poor performance losing their first two Champions League games and it will only be a short duration before you are informed of Ronald Koeman’s future.
