Matchday LIVE: Levante vs. Atlético

Atleti hunting for three points on what could be last game of the season

Club Atletico De Madrid V Real Villarreal - La Liga

Atlético go into today’s match with Levante in the peculiar position of not knowing whether or not this is their last game of the season.

With a strike looming, and the possibility of our two remaining games being suspended, Atleti know that three points today would be a great way to go about securing third position, as they would move six points clear of Valencia.

If Atleti do win, it would Cholo’s first victory away against Levante.

    I just had to write it down, and the guys equalised

  • Haha why was Siqueira that far up? Should have been Mandzukic in that position…

  • Kris

    FOUR offsides for Mandzukic. FOUR!

    unbelievable… what is happening to us?

  • atleti10

    Mandzukic is shit, he’s too slow in mind and body. I’d love to see him sold this summer.

    Get in. Thank you Torres, a bit of quality.

  • Ahmad Hossainy

    That was a very important point, because before this game we needed 4 points to secure the 3rd place in case Valencia won their 2 remaining games -which probably will happen- and a defeat today would have meant that we will need at least a draw vs Barca, which is very difficult in these circumstance even if the game is in the Calderon
    Now we can afford to lose against Barca, a win in Granada will be enough
    Thank you very much Fernando

  • Abdil Egriøz

    Torres saving us once again, can you get a better sub-player than him? Mandzukic looked slow and disoriented throughout the match. It’s not that I dont like him but he just doesn’t fit into our playing style. Would like to see Correa played in his position in the pre-season. Miranda also showed why we need to cash in on him this summer and have toby as a substitute.

    Partido a partido my ass. If we played this game like a final, the remaining two would be a formality. But no, meet the classic end-of-the-season Atleti.
    Season 2013/2014, last three games: Levante 2-0 Atletico, Malaga 1-1 Atletico, Barcelona 1-1 Atletico.
    We have to thank Fernando for his contribution and wonder why this ‘world-class striker’ named Mario Mandzukic, who scored his last goal 2.5 months ago, is still a first choice.

    Atleti B just been relegated from Segunda B to Tercera, not a big surprise, it was just a matter of time
    Two seasons ago they were fighting for promotion to Segunda, and they were just 6 points from the 4th place, the last spot for the promotion play-offs, the team of Oliver, Saul & Manquillo

    This also means that Atleti C will be automatically relegated from Tercera, since 2 teams of the same club can not play in the same division, but according to some reports : the club will just dissolve Atleti C, because the division lower than Tercera is the regional competition, and it’s just not worth it .

    Because Simeone is stubborn as a mule
    I thought at this point it was very obvious !!
