A goal to continue the operation won back the hearts of Colchoneros supporters. On his return to AtlÃ © tico this summer, some reluctance had emerged among Madrid supporters, still disappointed by the departure of Antoine Griezmann at BarÃ§a in summer 2019. But victories and goals, while waiting for possible trophies, heal the wounds in football. The French international therefore further improved his situation this Thursday by scoring his first goal in La Liga since his return to Atlético, in his draw at Levante (2 -2).
On the lookout for a header from Felipe, who had tried to take over a cross from Griezmann, the former Real Sociedad player placed a shrewd header to deceive Aitor (12th). In the Champions League, the French had more success with 3 goals before his expulsion against Liverpool.
Joined after a penalty from Bardhi (37th), conceded by Luis Suarez, AtlÃ © tico thought he had made the difference at the end of the game by Matheus Cunha (76th), freshly entered © in place of Griezmann (76th). But the same Brazilian was then penalized with an inconspicuous hand for a penalty again transformed by Bardhi (90th).
A negative result which allows AtlÃ © tico to gain only one place by overtaking Osasuna to reach 6th place. Five points behind the leader, Real Sociedad, with one game less.
