Football: Spain's big names in good order – News Sports: Football


The outsiders have returned to the ranks. Grenada exploded and just lost three times consecutively, while Real Sociedad also stalled. Place to favorites.
Atletico Madrid managed to tame Espanyol Barcelona (3-1) on Sunday during the 13th day of La Liga, and moved up to third place. With a goal and a decisive pass, Madrid striker Alvaro Morata (27 years old, 31 caps), who has just been recalled to the Spanish squad after a two-month-long tunnel, guided his team to victory at Wanda Metropolitano, sides of Angel Correa and Koke, the other scorers of the match side "Atleti".

While Atletico suffered a lot from Espanyol's counter-attacks in the first half, the center-forward allowed the Madrilenians to get some chances, as with this lob just missed (15th). That was insufficient at first, since it was first Sergi Darder who opened the score for Espanyol (1-0, 38th), a balloon propelled into the netting of Jan Oblak.

But Morata maintained his own in the match, sending an offering on the head of Correa (who saw his goal refused then validated by the VAR in a second time, 45th +3), then giving the advantage to his ( 2-1, 57th) for his 6th goal in six games with Atletico. A performance that allows him to reconnect with the Spanish team. Absent the last four games of the Roja (injured in September, rejected by choice in October), the international was recalled with the Roja Friday to face Malta and Romania, 15 and 18 November, in qualifying for the Euro -2020.

In stoppage time (92), captain Koke, shemale at the penalty point, tripled the bet for an Atletico coming out of a series of 2 draws (1-1 at Alaves and Sevilla FC) and 1 defeat (Wednesday at Leverkusen in the Champions League, 2-1), but who has however struggled to control his subject.

The Colchoneros return to third place in La Liga, one point behind Barca and Real Madrid.
