This Monday, Atlético Madrid made a short trip to the Spanish capital to take on Rayo Vallecano at the end of the third day of La Liga. This encounter between the two Madrid neighbors also provided an opportunity to see how the two undefeated teams compete from the start of the season. Tonight, however, there was no such closeness in the score as the Kolhoneros crushed their opponents. From the very first moments, Diego Simeone’s wards confidently took advantage thanks to Antoine Griezmann (1-0, 2nd place) and Memphis Depay (2-0, 16th place). Nahuel Molina let Atlético go before half-time (3-0, 36th).
Returning from the locker room, the guests were silent for almost half an hour before torpedoing their rivals. Entering the game in the 35th minute after the Memphis injury, Alvaro Morata then scored a double (73rd, 84th) as Ángel Correa and Marcos Llorente made the addition even more difficult. With this success on the river, Atlético Madrid climbs to second position ahead of a thrilling reception against Sevilla next weekend. Rayo Vallecano will have to restart on the Betis pitch.
