Today’s match between Barcelona and Athletico Madrid was an electrifying one. Both teams played their best but one team was unlucky.
Atletico Madrid player, Koke scored first at the 46 st minutes before Lionel Messi put Barcelona back in the game with an equalizer at 51st minute right before the half time. The game continued with lots of pressure, Antoine Greizmann put Barcelona ahead with another goal and Barcelona enjoyed the game as they dominated for the most of the second half of the game.
However, the VAR was not on Barcelona and Messi’s side today. VAR disallowed two beautiful goals scored by Lionel Messi and Pique. Barcelona continues to press until Atletico Madrid won a penalty kick from a foul by Barcelona’s goalkeeper Neto.
The referee gave Neto a yellow card and awarded a penalty to Atletico Madrid. Alvaro Morata took the penalty and he scored it. The game continued after it was tied and Atletico Madrid got another chance to put the game away and they were able to convert. Angel Correa scored the 3rd goal for Madrid at the 86 minutes. Sadly Barcelona was unable to revive themselves from the heartbreaking loss and the match ended 3 – 2 to Atletico Madrid’s advantage.
