Atlético looks punchy and hungry in its debut against an erratic Getafe
MADRID, 15 Ago. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Atlético de Madrid thrashed Getafe (0-3) this Monday in the first day of LaLiga Santander for both, held at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, a promising start for the rojiblancos with Álvaro Morata very plugged in, just like Joao Félix.
Diego Pablo Simeone's men started a League that they hope to fight again with great hunger and success. On the contrary, the 'azulón' team entered on the wrong foot and errors in defense that condemned him. After two years at Juventus, Morata's return seems serious, with a double as a true 'killer'.
The good red-and-white pre-season continued in the south of Madrid, where the visiting fans were more noticeable than the locals. The derby began to face the 'Cholo' with a lot of pressure up front, looking for recovery, adding many people in attack. Thus came the 0-1, robbery and all in a rush.
Between Lemar, Saúl and Joao combined in a few meters for the last pass to a Morata who defined with aim at the net in the 15th minute. Quique Sánchez Flores's team reacted as best they could, putting in dangerous crosses down Iglesias' right wing. Atleti did not mind retreating in part and looking for the counterattack.
Getafe went into the break with a good chance from Borja Mayoral, a shot that was bitten but hit the crossbar, and after the break, an error between Koke and Savic left Enes Ünal alone against Oblak but he sent her to the clouds . The local team opted for that high pressure, but Atleti was much better.
Nor did he have to push and Mitrovic's gift to Joao Félix turned the Portuguese into a precious assist to Morata, who looked at the rival goal and sent the ball to the squad almost falling (0-2). The Spanish international had the third and, with the entry of Griezmann or Carrasco, 'Geta' began to see it raw.
However, another cross from Iglesias and a deflected header from Mayoral could change the game, 15 minutes from the end, just before Griezmann made the sentence in a low cross shot (0-3). The 'azulón' team signed its surrender knowing the sins committed behind, while the 'Cholo' Atleti, 18 wins and 2 draws against Getafe, start the League very strong.
