Atletico Madrid vs Malaga [Recap, May 11th]

Atletico Madrid seem to love leaving on the edge after failing to secure the title in the confines of their own home and leaving the champion to be decided at Camp Nou this week. Bet365 offered good odds for both an Atletico win and the goalscorer market, but since Diego Costa did not play and Atletico did not win, we lost the bet placed on this coupled betting market.

The hosts knew what was at stake, and with the chances they got to score throughout the match, it is yet bewildering why they weren’t able to win this. Some would argue that the reason was both goalkeepers being in excellent form, especially Malaga’s Willy Caballero, who denied David Villa on several occasions. Koke had a big chance of his own, but as it was Atletico’s theme for that night, his shot went far off the post.


Malaga stunned the Atletico fans on the 65th minute when Samu scored after winning a header of Miranda. The confusion lasted only 9 minutes as Atletico leveled the score as Alderweireld made amends for his mistake to the Malaga goal and scored yet another header on the 74th minute. A mere 14 minutes later Malaga was left with 10 people on the pitch after Angelieri received a red card after a foul on Diego Ribas.

Atletico still has hopes for the title as Barcelona only managed a goalless draw against Elche, but this point meant much more for Malaga who are now sure of staying in la Liga next season.

Result: -5 units, bet lost
