La Liga Football Results – Valencia’s Two Late Home Goals Saved Them

Valencia provided some late drama as they ended up in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Atletico Madrid. Last night at the Mestalla stadium, in La Liga football results, Valencia’s two late home goals saved them against Atletico.

Diego Simeone’s men now have 23 points after 12 La Liga games. And they are in 4th place in the table, with just as many points behind the leaders.

Valencia, on the other hand, are enjoying 17 points in 13 games. This is why they are sitting right in the middle of the standings before the international break.

La Liga Football Results – Valencia’s Two Late Home Goals Saved Them

A cagey first half saw very little created from either side in the opening 30 minutes. Goncalo Guedes’ long-range shot proved to be the most testing piece of work for either goalkeeper.

However, the reigning champions weren’t dismayed and provided a real moment of quality to find the opener. Guests Atletico’s Luis Suarez took the ball finishing expertly with his weaker foot. His precise finish went in off the post, leaving Jasper Cillessen with no chance of keeping the ball out.

Just five minutes into the second half, though, Valencia found an equaliser through Stefan Savić‘s misfortune. Gonçalo Guedes’ blasted ball across the box cannoned off the defender, leaving Jan Oblak rooted to the spot.

Now, Atlético’s defence has been questionable recently. And this goal only marked the ninth consecutive away game in which they’ve failed to keep a clean sheet.

To support this evaluation seemingly, the hosts continued to press and found numerous half-chances in the minutes after the goal.

However, the away side took the lead against the run of play through a quite magical strike from Antoine Griezmann.

The Frenchman took the ball from inside his own half, terrorising three Valencian defenders. Finally, Griezmann finished by striking from 22 metres out into the top corner.

Just 4 minutes later, Sime Vrsaljko made it 3-1 for the visitors and Atleti appeared to be sailing towards an away victory after the hosts’ momentum was seemingly drained.

But two quick goals, coming from Hugo Duro, led the two teams to end up in a 3-3 draw.

Valencia – Atletico Madrid 3:3

Goals: Savic 50’ (o.g.), Duro 90+2’, 90+6’ – Suarez 35’, Griezmann 58’, Vrsaljko 62’

Villarreal – Getafe 1:0
