The red and white aftermath: Match Day 5

The red and white outlaws held the Estadio Nuevo José Zorrilla hostage Saturday night, making their way out of town with a 2-0 victory. The win also makes it a perfect 15 out of a possible 15 points in Primera action so far this campaign. Nothing can stop Cholo’s gang, despite their worst first half of football thus far this season.

The red and white aftermath: Match Day 37

Sunday’s scoreless draw against a last-place Mallorca side with one foot down the chute to Segunda made it clear that Atlético had already accomplished all of their pre-season objectives before kick-off. Following direct qualification to the Champions League group stage and a Copa del Rey title and simultaneous snapping of a 14-year derby winless streak,


The red and white aftermath: Match Day 31

Atlético pummelled a feeble Granada side at the Vicente Calderón on Sunday in a clash that served as a fun lesson in counting for the roughly 10,000 children in attendance at the Rojiblanco stronghold. It was one for each finger at Cholo Castle, with Atleti hitting their relegation-threatened opponents for five goals. The emphatic victory,

La Liga: Atlético 5 – 0 Granada

The stage was set for a perfect afternoon and Atlético Madrid duly delivered.

The red and white aftermath: Match Day 30

Atlético managed to take home a point despite finishing with nine players on the field in Getafe on Sunday. The scoreless bout will lend a lot of credence to the theory that there’s a lack of motivation in Rojiblanco land. There was always going to be some concern about Atleti’s ability to create chances coming

The red and white aftermath: Match Day 22

Sunday night’s 1-0 victory over Betis will go down as the night Diego Simeone unleashed ‘the Beast’. After failing to capitalise on a very lively start, Atleti’s play drifted into a state of tedium. Starting strikers Radamel Falcao and Adrián were finding it very difficult to get meaningfully involved in the game. The Asturian was

The red and white aftermath: Match Day 18

Without three of their kings on El Día de los Reyes, Atlético were forced to overcome a bit of adversity in Palma.

The red and white aftermath: Match Day 16

Barcelona have broken free from the pack in Spain with their 4-1 thrashing of Atlético at the Camp Nou. For a magical half hour, Atleti led their fans on, allowing the Rojiblanco faithful to get lost in one of those fantasies boss Diego Simeone had referred to on Saturday. But eventually, as the wise Argentine

Atletico Madrid players Filipe and Diego Costa score against Getafe

Copa del Rey: Atlético 3 – 0 Getafe

Atlético Madrid have taken a 3-0 lead after the first game of a two-legged tie in the Copa del Rey against Getafe. The Colchoneros overcame early chances for the visitors and scored two late goals to win by a wide margin, which should be enough to secure passage to the next round of the King’s
