Goals: Girona- Atletico Madrid-Played on 03/13/ 2023
Atletico Madrid defeated Girona, 1-0, today, Monday, in the 25th round of the Spanish League.
And in his 3rd visit to the (Montilivi Municipal) stadium, the stronghold of Girona, since the Catalan team’s promotion to La Liga in 2017, Atletico managed to return with 3 points for the first time.
The Madrid team owes credit for this victory to its striker Alvaro Morata, who scored the net in the minute (90 + 2), after coming on as a substitute in the minute (62) of the match.
The goal witnessed a state of intense anticipation due to a possible offside on Morata before the “VAR” technique settled the matter and ended the controversy by confirming the legitimacy of the goal.
Atlético hit more than one bird with this goal, as it tasted the first victory in Girona since its rise to the La Liga lights in 2017, when it returned in its two previous visits in 2017 and 2018 with two draws (2-2 and 1-1), respectively.
The victory also secured the presence of the “Rojiblancos” in third place with 48 points, 8 points behind arch-rivals Real Madrid, and 3 points ahead of their pursuers, Sociedad.
While the Catalan team suffered its second consecutive loss, the third in the last 5 matches, and the 11th this season, and its score stopped at 30 points, bringing it to 12th place.
