Plenty at stake for either side

Atlético bring their season to a close on Saturday, needing just a point away at Granada to make sure of third spot and automatic qualification to next year’s Champions League group stage.

The home side are in the midst of a relegation fight however, and a win for them would ensure survival in La Liga. Both teams have it all to play for, so we could be in for a dramatic evening.

    Thomas helping from a distance. Bless him.

  • Kris

    Lmao from competing against Barca and Real Madrid to being outplayed by Granada.

  • atleti10

    Our attacking shape is pathetic..

  • Billy Edwards

    Surprised how little Granada are attacking given they probably need a win. Not leaving any spaces at the back for us to exploit.

  • AaX

    Weakest attacking display I’ve seen so far … Wake Up Boys!! Get the First Goal then can you decide the scoreline. Vamos Atleti

  • Max Huber

    I agree! They are in holidays already! Mandzukic out, Torres out, but Jimenez still doesn´t play? I really can´t understand why he doesn´t get a chance to show his quality – maybe the game would get more spirit!

  • Kris

    Fucking Godin and Miranda stop with your shit with those long balls.

  • madwriter

    This is awful, we deserve 4th place.

  • Kris

    Fuck man, so hard to watch.

  • Kris

    Have we even had a fucking shot the whole game? Smh.

  • Kris

    What are substitutes for?

  • AaX

    They are playing the 4-5-1 formation. They are playing more for a point rather than what was earlier claimed, full 3 points. Some sympathy to Granada ? Odd but maybe True.

  • madwriter

    Why would they use them, look at how they play, MAGNIFICENT, there is no need for subs.

  • Kris

    I fucking hate how Raul Jimenez is treated.

  • Kris

    Both teams are fucking losers. Who the fuck depends on other teams to help them out? losers.

  • Kris

    Lol I shouldn’t be pissed like this, but I am turning off the game now.

  • Jeronamo Pakor Jones

    So do I. I actually came here to say that exact fucking thing

  • madwriter

    Godin and Miranda have more exchanged passes than Xavi and Iniesta had back in the days.

  • Ahmad Hossainy

    I don’t think that has anything to do with Jimenez, if Torres was on the bench he probably wouldn’t came on either (he didn’t play a single minute in the Brenabeu in the CL)
    Both teams seems to be happy with 0-0, just like Juve-Atleti, and in that day both teams didn’t make any substitution, not just Atleti
    Jimenez deserved much more chances all over the season, but not today, and I wish he doesn’t play today, because it will only happen when we concede

  • AaX

    To draw is what was actually decided ?!! Should have told us initially then. See you guys next Champions League. Forza Atleti !! P E A C E

  • Max Huber

    If I sum up the last games I have to say that Atletico played worse and worse and this game was the top of the mountain – Griezmann didn´t show anything the last games and I´m not going to talk about Mandzukic. So I have to say that Atletico can thank Fernando for his so important 2 goals which secured Atletico 4 points! He underlined his importance and love for this club! Without these goals we would be on the fourth or fifth place – for sure!

  • Ahmad Hossainy

    Well, I’m wrong, two too late subs, and Jimenez is one of them, but I don’t think I was wrong about the principle

  • Max Huber

    Well I guess they really played for a draw – but I can´t help myself- I`m dissapointed because I wanted them to fight and to show that they really deserve the third place!

  • AaX

    Lets Hope for the Best Atletico de Madrid Next Season. The one that is yet to be seen but Always have Known About, GOD Willing !

  • SL ATLETI

    atletico desperately need a play maker… oliver torres will return but need a top class play maker until oliver become that class! i suggest Koke to go to center mid and Gaitan or Silva will be good for the place koke playing now
