Atlético, surgical in Cadiz, puts pressure on La Liga head

This Atlético de Madrid is clinically effective. As usual, Diego Simeone’s men sterilely dominated Cadiz for an hour, before being intractable on their first clear chances of the meeting, to finally win widely (4-1) this Sunday.

In Andalusia, Thomas Lemar, one of the fit men of the evening, found the light first, spiking point blank with the head (57th) a center dropped from Yannick Carrasco. If he then harvested a back lightning by stumbling against the goalkeeper of Cadiz Jeremias Ledesma (63rd), the former Monegasque was subsequently the penultimate pass of the second goal of the Colchoneros, concluded in a touch by the other Frenchman present on the lawn, Antoine Griezmann (70th).

Faced with an apathetic defense from Cadiz, the two entrants Angel Correa (76th), on a play in one touch, then Matheus Cunha (86th), all in power, responded to the reduction of the gap of Lozano (85th), on an error of appreciation of Jan Oblak, to give a little more relief to the boost of Atlético in the second act.

Thanks to this great success, the reigning Spanish champion temporarily climbs to 2nd place in the Liga standings, before the shock at the top of this 15th day between Real Madrid (1st) and Sevilla FC (4th).
