Spanish La Liga

Result: Atletico Madrid 2-1 Real Sociedad

Date: 02 December 2017

Venue: Wanda Metropolitano

Atletico Madrid came from behind to register a 2-1 win over Real Sociedad at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday evening.

The visitors looked lively in the opening 15 minutes of the encounter while Atletico were still trying to find their rhythm.

Clear cut chances were few and far between in the the first 20 minutes, although Sociedad did manage to carve out a couple half chances.

In the 27th minute, the visitors were awarded a penalty when Mikel Oyarzabal went down in the box. Willian José stepped up and converted the spot-kick to hand his side the lead, 0-1.

Diego Simeone's charges dominated for the rest of the first half, but they were left frustrated by a stubborn Sociedad defence.

The score remained 1-0 to the visitors at the halftime break.

After a quiet start to the second half, Atletico leveled matters in the 63rd minute as Felipe Luis cut inside and drilled a low effort into the far corner after some good work by Saul, 1-1.

With 20 minutes remaining, Simeone introduced Fernando Torres and Yannick Carrasco as they pushed for a winning goal.

Atletico had wait to until the 90th minute, as Antoine Griezmann secured three points with a close range finish after some good work by Saul yet again.
