Atletico Finally Back To Winning Ways

Spanish LaLiga

Result: Getafe 0-2 Atletico Madrid 

Date: 22 September 2018

Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Pérez

Atletico Madrid finally returned to winning ways in LaLiga after seeing off Getafe 2-0 at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.

Diego Simeone's men were pushing for a return to winning ways after dropping points in their last league encounters, although they defeated AS Monaco in the Champions League in the week.

Simeone got the start he had hoped as he his side went after 14 minutes, with David Soria deflecting Thomas Lemar's fierce strike into his own net.

The hosts managed to carve out a chance in the 29th minute through Damian Suarez, but Atletico defender Gimenez popped up with a timely block to deny the forward.

Unfortunately, that proved to be the final chance of the half as Los Rojiblancos went into the break with a one-goal advantage.

The second goal eventually arrived for the visitors on the hour mark as an impressive team was finish off  by Lemar at the near post.
 
It got worse for Getafe in the 70th minute when Ivan Alejo was shown a straight red card for a for reckless challenge on Saul Niguez.
 
Simeone introduced Diego Godin and  Angel Correa for the final 20 minutes as Atletico look to see out the remaining stages of the tie.
 
With a man down, Getafe really struggled to mount any serious attempts at goal as Los Rojiblancos ended their winless run.
