After crushing Deportivo Alaves 2-1, Atletico Madrid has won four consecutive LaLiga victories. Before Felipe scored an own goal, Marcos Llorente opened the scoring for Madrid to give them an early lead. However, to see Madrid claim three points, Luis Suarez got a 90-minute winner.
As a result, with two games in hand, Diego Simeone’s side sits on top of the table, while Alaves picked up 18 points from 17 matches to occupy 13th place.
With his most recent long-range effort, Marcos Llorente put the visitors ahead after 41 minutes, his five from outside the penalty area more than any other LaLiga player since the beginning of 2020.
