It happened again in the cruelty of added time, but let fate fool no one. Because only the rage of joao flix he had previously managed to rescue a very sad Atltico from Madrid. The goal in 98 Nephew condemn those of Simeone to a defeat that affected his doubts and gave Cádiz three points out of sheer euphoria. [3-2: Narracin y estadsticas]

The good intentions after the European debacle were diluted at Atlético in the blink of an eye. His most apathetic version appeared in the Nuevo Mirandilla and a rival with water up to his neck did not waste it, even if he had to resort to the miracle of the last second. Without faith, without spark and, above all, without football until they appeared GriezmannJoao Flix and the debutant Paul Barrios. Simeone’s team, a few days before the game in Porto will continue at least in the Europa League, had previously been the worst version of itself that I can remember.

And only in the final whirlwind, with a thunderous double by Joao Flix, did he wake up and even caress a victory that would have been unusual. because when lex Fernndez had done the second of the Cdiz in 80 that smelled like a sentence, Ledesma he had hardly had to show up. Only in that desperation was there a sense of self-love from an Atlético who did not yet know what it was like to lose away from home in the League. Away from the Metropolitano was where his dreams of future growth had been drawn, but in Cdiz, against a rival so needy that he did not know what it was like to win at home, he also ended up spoiling that hopeful path.

If Atltico came from the height of fatality in the outcome of the match against Leverkusen that left him definitively out of the Champions League, at 27 seconds he had already found himself with a goal, like a slab on top. A ball behind Molinaa pass behind Espino and a shot released from the penalty spot of Bongonda. Pum pam pum. It was like hitting a Don Tancredo. The rojiblancos were still lost in thought, gloating over their misfortune. A terrible symptom.

Morata injury

Because the entire first part was going to become the height of reluctance. The changes in Simeone’s eleven, giving Griezmann rest and returning to the defense of five, did not help. As neither the injury of bruise at 10 minutes, when Atltico threatened to react. But that impetus that led with more enthusiasm than success Rodrigo dePaul don’t last too long. Cdiz did not fall apart because his rival was a bunch of mistakes, bad passes and controls, thickness and nerves under the Cadiz afternoon sun.

The yellows, who had also lost due to injury to Mbaye, they began to grow against a rival without confidence. On the horizon they sense the first victory of the season at Nuevo Mirandilla, the three points that will make them take a breath from the relegation places. Nephew, in the discount of the first part, was about to make it 2-0. A notice.

On the way back, the Atltico is no better one iota. He neither built football nor disturbed. only carrasco He was trying something from the left and a cross from the Belgian was about to take advantage of it Belt to tie He saved Ledesma’s mitten when Griezmann and Joao Flix were already preparing for the change. They, Carrasco and Correa, protagonists of the visiting little danger, were the ones sacrificed.

Everything seemed to end with both of lex Fernndez. And, then, as in a convoluted script, the aforementioned Joao Flix was enraged. A mean Chilean that I hit in Hernndez to shorten And a shot of pure rage in 84 to tie. With eight minutes of added time, the afternoon going downhill and Menino unleashed, it seemed that a red and white comeback was in the offing. But the Portuguese’s header licked the post and, in yet another mistake, Sobrino finished off a cross from Alejo to turn all of Cádiz upside down in another tragic discount from the Atlético.
