Atletico Madrid score four!
Atletico Madrid continued their free-scoring start to the 2016/2017 season and after their 4-2 home win over Malaga have the best goal difference in La Liga, despite being three points off top spot.
Yannick Carrasco opened the scoring with a fine left-footed strike.
Kevin Gameiro doubled Atletico’s lead with a predatory strike from inside the box.
Carrasco & Gameiro at the double
Former Barcelona youngster Sandro Ramirez pulled a goal back for Malaga with a terrific free-kick.
But, just before the break, Gameiro scored again to make it 3-1 from an Antoine Griezmann assist (lovely header).
Ignacio Camacho pulled another back for Malaga on 64 only for Carrasco to seal the win with six minutes remaining.
For the fourth, Carrasco showed blistering pace and a fine strike into the far corner, to confirm his rise as a massive player for Diego Simeone’s side.
