Atletico Madrid returned from far and made up for their 2-0 defeat to Valencia, to an epic 3-2 victory, in the 22nd stage of La Liga on Saturday.
Valencia finished the first half with goals by Yunus Musah (25) and Hugo Duro (44). In the second half, Argentine coach Diego Simeone’s team scored three goals signed by Brazilian Matheus Cunha (64), Argentina’s Angel Correa (90+1), and Mario Hermoso (90+3). Atletico Madrid reached 36 points in fourth place, while Valencia are in ninth place with 29 points. Atletico almost suffered a new loss when the original time was over with 1-2 behind, but two goals in the first three minutes from the added time turned the scene upside down from catastrophic to festive.
