Atletico Madrid struggles to win league title

Atletico Madrid’s dreams of winning the LaLiga title were destroyed following their 1-0 defeat to Sevilla.

In the first half, Jan Oblak saved a penalty for the league leaders, but he couldn’t stop Sevilla from taking the lead through Marcos Acuna.

Sevilla had several chances in the first half. The home side had a chance to get a 1 – 0 lead with 8 minutes played, as Lucas Ocampos missed a chance from a penalty kick. When de Jong shot from close range Sevilla had a new chance a minute later, but one of Atletico’s defenders was in the right place.

Ocampos shot strongly from the edge of the penalty area and Oblak again defended excellently in the 68th minute.

The pressure of Seville paid off in the 70th minute when Jesus Navas sent a pass into the penalty area, and Marcos Acuna scored.
