Mandzukic Scores As Atletico Win

Mario Mandzukic scored his first La Liga goal for Atletico Madrid as last season’s champions beat Eibar 2-1 at the .Estadio Vicente Calderón.

While Eibar may have seen more of the ball in the game, it was Atletico who always looked the more likely winner, having three times the shots at goal as the visitors.

Miranda opened the scoring for Atletico in the the 12th minute, heading in after being set up by Koke from a corner..

It was 2-0 in the 26th minute when former Bayern Munich player Mandzukic headed home Gabi’s cross from a set piece. 

Three minutes later Antoine Griezmann could’ve made it three, but he shot wide to the right.

In the 34th minute Mikel Arruabarrena set up Abraham to pull one back for Eibar, who scored from just outside the box.

The second half saw fewer opportunities at goal, but six minutes in Koke’s attempt from a free kick went just over.

Raul Jimemez went close in the 64th minute, but his headed attempt from Gabi’s cross went straight to Xavier Aranzamendi in goal.

Raul Garcia was also almost set up by another Gabi cross in the 83rd minute, but his header went high and wide.

Earlier in the day Athletic Club beat Levante 3-0, with goals from Aduriz, Iturraspe and Muniain, while Cordoba and Celta Vigo played out to a 1-1 draw.
