The Cerro del Espino was not the scene at the express wish of Rayo Majadahonda and El Atltico, rather than a cup duel that would throw salt on the open wounds, there was a training match. With 18,000 spectators pushing in the Metropolitano, an eleven without risks, a pinch of luck and the ambition to go to the eighth of a competition that resists. It took no more to mutate into a sweeping gale

Majadahonda took the path of surprise with the resignation to play in their stadium, even though this is the second home of Atltico and that they know it inch by inch. At the Wanda, the venue was the same as always, he wore an rojiblanco and took advantage of his confidence to vent his accumulated anger, starting with the memory of old embarrassments against Cultural Leonesa and Cornell and ending with doubts in the League that he needs to shake off.

Simeone exorcised any bad omen with the eleven, who could well line up in the next game against Villarreal. I even got hold of Jan Oblak even though all eyes were on the debut of Benjamin Lecomte. Both could see given the Slovenian being on the bench, because throughout the first part he was a spectator who Diego Simeone granted the privilege of being at the foot of the field.

Emotional sledgehammer

If one goalkeeper monopolizes the talk of the previous one, the other, Gorka Giralt, marked the beginning of the duel. Before the first minute had been completed, an involuntary stomp of Luis Surez In his hand, the first athletic onslaught forced him to retreat in tears. An emotional blow that knocked out the entire team of Abel gmez.

The Atltico was installed in his area and he tried on a succession of occasions to start putting the game in his pocket. To do so, he was even lucky that there was no VAR in this round of the competition, because then the goal of Matheus Cunha he would not have gone up to the scoreboard for offside. Did not see the wizard Jaime Latre that in the pass of Yannick Carrasco, so intense in the pressure at the exit of the ball that it caused the error of the center Jorge Casado, the Brazilian was ahead. It was one more shovel in the spirit of Rayo, that he saw the game was not turning the color of prowess. At most, hold on so as not to succumb to excessive sobo.

That feeling grew even more when he lost another ball to the pressure of Cunha, which he built with Thomas lemar and Carrasco, a play that ended with an unstoppable shot from Renan lodi. If by then he no longer had a rival, at the edge of the break came Carrasco’s band connection with a split Marcos Llorente placeholder image that filtered the perfect pass for Luis Surez to feed his voracity and grab the pass to the second round.

Griezmann’s injury

Despite the fact that nothing foreshadowed that the victory was no longer immovable, Simeone continued demanding in the band and leading to the artillery field, even if he came from a few days apart from the happy coronavirus. In a first batch, he sent to the field Koke, Sime Vrsaljko Y Angel Correa, but then he put Antoine Griezmann Y Joao flix, perhaps so that they would add kilometers before Villarreal’s next visit. A decision that, in the end, was risky and wrong.

He wanted to wake up Rayo Majadahonda while the Atltico readjusted. He finally stepped on the other area of ​​Wanda and handed the first ball to Oblak on a free kick. Run the 57th minute. With more lung and talent like that of Mawi He tried at least to stretch. So much gunpowder had put the Atltico that it was almost impossible not to change the score again. In the first play in which Koke, Correa and Griezmann connected, the goal of the French arrived, fattening a marker that rounded Joao Flix in the race after a long pass from Lodi.

If there was something that could spoil the victory and the classification did not look like it happened in the visitors’ area, the rojiblancos. But it came. A few minutes after Griezmann put his name among the scorers, he reached for his thigh and asked for the change. The physical problem of the Frenchman left the team with ten, which was not important, but it can be a setback both for the next game and for the Super Cup that Atltico will play in a week in Riyadh. The party was not complete.
