Football tip Suarez could not be stopped, but Celta tripped Atletico
La Liga leader Atletico Madrid have lost valuable points in their home game against Celta in the 22nd round of La Liga. The match ended 2:2. Thus, the guests from Galicia interrupted the series of 8 championship victories of the `mattresses`, who have an advantage of 8 points over Barcelona and Real Madrid, and have one game less. Luis Suarez shone for Athletes again. The Uruguayan scored both goals for Diego Simeone`s team and is now the sole leader in the ranking of scorers with 16 goals. However, reserve Facundo Ferreira confused the accounts of `los rohiblancos` with an equalizer in the 89th minute.
Staffing problems caused by the coronavirus forced Simeone to make several reshuffles. Angel Correa and Renan Lodi took the place of Joao Felix and Toma Lemar. Marcos Llorente was returned as a right back, but he was also useful in this role and assisted on the equalizer. Geoffrey Kondogbia started in a La Liga match for the first time since his transfer to Atletico. Celta arrived at Wanda Metropolitano after a five-match winless streak, but despite poor results, the team is playing nice football and proved it again today. Head coach Eduardo Codet could rely on Denis Suarez, and in the Galician attack, Iago Jaspas and Santi Mina were partners. Celta approached aggressively at the beginning, and the high press confused the Atletico players. The guests found the result forecast by 1x2 predictions in the 13th minute after a model attack. Hugo Mayo broke on the right flank and centered to Santi Mina, who deflected the ball into the net with his head. Felipe was closest to the Vigo striker, but he was late to cover him. Atletico failed to press the opponent in search of an equalizer. Felipe received a yellow card and made two more fouls before the break, which led Diego Simeone to replace him at halftime with Torreira.
Before that, Madrid still scored in the 45th minute. Suarez was in the right place in the penalty area and intercepted Jorente`s cross with a split. The situation was reviewed with VAR for a possible ambush of the hosts` midfielder before the cross, but there was none.
In the 50th minute Atletico scored a second goal. He was again the work of Suarez, this time after an assist by Renan Lodi. The Uruguayan became the footballer who scored the most goals in his first 17 games for a La Liga club - 16, with one more than Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid. In the 56th minute, a risky but very precise intervention by Kondogbia prevented Iago Aspas from scoring for 2:2. Atletico then controlled the match and did not allow the opponent to threaten Oblak. The hosts failed to decide everything in their favor in the 83rd minute, when a strong shot by Jose Jimenez went inches from the crossbar. Celta did not give up chasing the point and at the end of the regular time they managed to equalize. He was noted by Facundo Ferreira, who had just replaced Santi Mina. The Argentine overtook the central defenders of Atletico after a pass from the flank of Augustin Solari and Cloud had nothing to do.
