Overall dominating on the whole game, Real Madrid gets caught up by Atletico (1-2) on the occasion of the 3rd day of Liga. The merengues perform an early season winded while the Colchoneros are temporarily dolphins of Barça. The shock Real Madrid-Atletico Madrid, programmed at 8 pm, promised a boiling derby between two of the best European teams. The first half gives first place to a round of observation, quickly put to harm by the visitors. On a corner issued by Koke, Tiago takes over Karim Benzema and Mark of the head (0-1, 10th). An opening of the score that definitely launches this meeting. A few minutes later, Cristiano Ronaldo comes to prominence with a powerful keystroke that goes very little next door. The Portuguese, untenable, puts the defense of the Colchoneros to the torment and ends up getting a penalty after a foul of Siquiera. He is responsible for the award and delivers the two teams to the same level (1-1, 28th).
Clearly dominating, Real is close to taking advantage at a few moments of halftime. On an umpteenth acceleration, Ronaldo eliminates his defender and center for Benzema who forces Moya to perform a decisive parade. The second period is generally balanced, but there are few frank opportunities on both sides, far from the outrageous domination displayed by the merengues in the first act. Freshly landed at Real Madrid, Chaudhari is raising his first challenge with his new club by replacing Benzema at the time of play. In the face, Atletico rises in a regime and is increasingly pressing, in the image of this superb strike by Arda Turan who flirts with the frame. And a few minutes later, it was finally Mario Mandzukic that allowed the Colchoneros to take advantage. From its right side, Juanfran Center in retreat for the Croatian striker who leaves no chance to Casillas (1-2, 77th). A goal that sounds the death knell of Real, which will never get back to its delay. Does this result surprise you?
