With a brutal performance and their biggest away victory in La Liga, Atletico Madrid destroyed Rayo Vallecano 7-0 on Monday night. Antoine Griezmann scored the game’s first goal early on, and Memphis Depay, his striking partner, added a second goal from close range after a cross from Saul Niguez. Nahuel Molina sneaked in the third goal just before halftime to end the game after Atletico lost the Dutch attacker to injury in the first half. Substitute Alvaro Morata netted in the 73rd minute and then again after Angel Correa grabbed the fifth, with Marcos Llorente ending the rout late on.
Antoine Griezmann told Movistar, “We had a tremendous game from the outset, with a lot of intensity.
There are three crucial points, and I am pleased with the team’s effort today.
With their convincing win, Atletico moved up to second place in the standings, two points behind Real Madrid.
With two victories in their first two games of the season, Rayo enjoyed a strong start, but Diego Simeone’s team brought them back to reality.
Oscar Valentin, a midfielder for Rayo, commented, “They were better in every way.”
We need to move forward and put today’s events behind us in order to continue.
