Atlético Madrid dominated its neighbor and rival Real in the derby on Sunday evening (3-1).
Alvaro Morata scintillating
The Spanish striker showed no feelings towards his former club. The Colchoneros scorer scored twice with a header and was incisive on all his team’s attacks. Effective.
Saul Niguez is reborn from his ashes
Greatly lacking in playing time in recent months, the talented Spanish midfielder from Atlético has been in all the good moves. He finished the match with two assists on the clock (18th and 46th). The Colchonero was the launching pad for all of Madrid’s offensives and presented a permanent danger to the Merengue defense.
Jude Bellingham derailed
For the first time this season, the Real midfielder was in great difficulty. The English midfielder was constantly attacked by Atlético defenders and was never able to express his talent. The former Dortmund player tried several times to create the difference on his own, without success. Real’s top scorer since the start of the season clearly wasn’t having a great night. The 20-year-old completely missed his game.
The Brazilian striker went through the match like a bottle abandoned in the open sea. Apart from two classy actions marked by his technical quality, the Madrid player was transparent. Far too lonely, Rodrygo suffers from the absence of his friend Vinicius Jr and proves once again this Sunday evening that he does not (yet) have what it takes to carry the Madrid attack on his shoulders.
