Levante beats Atletico Madrid 1-0 at Wanda Metropolitano

Levante has stunned Atletico by picking up a priceless away victory! They’ve become the first to win twice at Wanda Metropolitano in LaLiga.

The Valencians worked hard all game and got their just rewards when Melero capitalised on Atletico switching off at the back.

Atletico pushed for an equaliser but didn’t threaten Cardenas until the end of the game. By then, it was too late.

Goals:

ATLETICO MADRID 0-1 LEVANTE! Atletico’s defensive woes continue! Melero slams home first-time from inside the box, beating Oblak at his near post. The midfielder had bust a gut to get on the end of De Frutos’ inviting pass.

Simeone post-match interview:

“We played a bad game,” he said. “We lost an excellent opportunity to put ourselves in a good position in the league, and we will have to make a double effort.

“Losses always hurt. Now, we must calm down, and tomorrow, we will chat to say what I think and see what [the players] feel.

“We lost a great opportunity. We have to seek to move forward with humility and with this reality that we have to live now.”

However, Simeone refused to question the team’s mentality and convinced Atletico to go into every match with the right attitude.

“In the run-up to the matches, I see the team with hope and enthusiasm,” he continued. “We came from a complicated victory.

“It could’ve been a boost to us, but we didn’t know how to take advantage of it, and that makes us need a double effort.”

So, where else do  Atletico Madrid and Levante go from here?

Atletico return to LaLiga action on Saturday as they face Osasuna in Pamplona. They host Manchester United four days later in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
