Atlético wants to win again after four 'punctures'

The rojiblanco team has added three draws and one defeat in their last meetings away from the Wanda Metropolitano. He had started with three wins in four games.


Atlético visits Granada with the urgent need to win again away from home. The rojiblanco team accumulates four consecutive starts without success, where only three draws and a defeat in Germany have arrived that has complicated the first place of group D in the Champions League.

A change of face out after a great start away from the Wanda Metropolitano, a facet where much had been suffered last season. Atletico began the course as a visitor winning in Butarque al Leganés by 0-1 thanks to a goal from Vitolo and despite the defeat against Real Sociedad (2-0), he added two more wins in his trips to Mallorca, 0-2 with the goals of Diego Costa and João Félix and Moscow again with a 0-2 against Lokomotiv thanks to the goals of Portuguese and Thomas.

If in the first four games outside nine points came between League and Champions, the next four have ended up with only three of 12 possible. Atletico could not take the vitoria of Valladolid after a very poor first part in Zorrilla, with a penalty missed by Sandro and a second half where the minimum reaction came from the entrance of Correa, who sent a ball to the stick. In Mendizorroza against Alavés the triumph would escape after Morata advanced to the rojiblancos in the 70th minute. The striker himself had the sentence in a hand to hand later, but Pacheco was victorious before Lucas Pérez put the final tie with a extraordinary goal from outside the area.

The next visit would be to Sevilla at Sánchez Pizjuán, in a match where despite starting to lose the goal of Franco Vázquez the magnificent reaction of the second half was about to serve to win the victory, after Morata's quick draw, but a penalty missed by Diego Costa and a final play with Koundé retaining the ball on the line to prevent him from entering a double occasion between the Spaniard and Morata, left the Cholo without victory. Finally, Bayer Leverkusen was visited, aware that a victory practically certified the pass to the round of 16, but it was the Germans who took the win. The Germans got 2-0 and in the discount Morata scored again by cutting the distances and had a final shot that could become the draw, but Hradecky repelled him.

Atlético have not won out since October 1, with their victory over Lokomotiv. In the last exits only Morata has seen the door, with three goals in the last three games, but it has been insufficient to win, since in all of them it has been fitted at least somewhat. The '9' has been very alone and before Granada will seek the collaboration of his teammates to end a streak that stretches for more than a month and a half.
