Atlético Madrid beat Elche in a match full of Argentines and remains the leader in Spain

After having lost the Madrid classic against Real as a visitor, the Athletic recovered in the Wanda Metropolitano and he prolonged his leadership in the Spanish league. Was 3-1 against Elche by date 14 of the contest: Luis Suárez (2) and Diego Costa they were the authors of the many; the Argentinian Lucas Boyé discounted for the visit.

It was a vital victory for those led by Diego Simeone, especially from the mental aspect. A stumble at home against a rival of lesser caliber could get to mortgage his stay at the top of the table. However those of the Cholo they had a convincing performance and left the three points in the capital.

The Uruguayan Suárez took advantage of two low pitchers to draw differences inside the area, where he was implacable as always. At the end of the first part he broke the zero after the assistance of Kieran Trippier and, already in the complement, he appeared from the far post and connected the qualification of the Belgian Yannick Carrasco.

The visit of the Argentine DT Jorge Almiron applied the law of the two heads in the area, at the exit of a corner kick, to shorten the gap in the scoreboard. Boyé he pushed it into the mouth of Oblak’s bow and narrowed the distance. The former River striker started with his compatriot Iván Marcone, while Argentine Emiliano Rigoni and Juan Sánchez Miño entered the second half (goalkeeper Diego Rodríguez was a substitute). Ángel Correa, for his part, entered in the 66th minute for him Tool.

At 73 ′ the naturalized Spanish Brazilian entered Diego Costa, which would take just 7 minutes to sentence the lawsuit in Madrid. A controversial infraction by Marcone inside the area allowed the attacker to score from 12 steps. The former Boca protested and swore to the referee Xavier Estrada Fernández that he had not touched him, but the referee upheld his decision and also admonished him for the claim. The repetitions of the foul left doubts.

With the three points in the bag, Atlético (12 games played) took three points ahead of their now guards Real society (Today he fell on his visit to Levante and has 15 matches disputed) and Real Madrid (13 duels, tomorrow visit to Eibar). Those from Alicante were deprived of adding in order to get away from the relegation zone.
