La Liga Football Results – Hosts Atletico Madrid and Real Sociedad Win 1-0
The first 30 minutes of the Atletico Madrid – Elche match seemed rather dull with the guests having the most possession.
Indeed, to everyone’s surprise, they dominated 62 percent of the ball possession over Atletico Madrid, to be precise.
However, it was Atletico’s Angel Correa who broke the deadlock in the end of the first half.
He scored his third goal in just his second La Liga game.
Los Colchoneros thus continue their title defense, because another 3 points have carried them to the top of the table.
Los Franjiverdes, on the other hand, sadly left Madrid empty-handed with no points to collect.
