De Paul


Two guys that Atlético missed so much in this ordeal of bad results and setbacks that their season has been up to now, resolved a rough and icy afternoon in Pamplona.

The day after the cruel goodbye cupbearer at the Bernabéu,


found relief in the only thing he has left.

He raised his team with more pride than football, although also with suffering: as always,


avoided greater evils.

[0-1: Narration and Stats]

In Pamplona, ​​a pick and shovel match, Atlético was a biting dog and not a barker.

An electric goal when Osasuna drowned the most and a handful of occasions to limbo.

But, finally, a smile with which to continue chasing the top three.

Because it is of little use to get entangled in the latest events, in this season without a title option yet in January, something unusual in the Simeone era.

Lamentations help nothing.

Almost half of the League remains and, in addition to dignity, there is the mission of finishing in Champions League positions, of fighting and at every point whatever the circumstances.

A header from

Chimy Ávia

and, above all, two saves from Oblak that were going to be fundamental.

The first, to an arrival at the far post by

Moi Gómez

for the center, of course, by Abde, who is a demon.

And, shortly after, a left-footed shot from

Diego Moreno

Saúl Ñíguez threw an eternal uncheck that caught all of Pamplona at the snack.

With such good fortune that De Paul put it on in a wonderful way, as well as his control and his shot with his right foot.

Like a crouching boxer, Simeone's men had taken out a devastating hook to send Osasuna to the canvas.

It had been exactly two years since Saúl had scored for Atlético.

It had been a long time since world champion De Paul had looked.
