Villarreal was epic on Atletico's pitch. As impossible as it seemed to defeat Atletico at their home ground, the Submarine earned a very good reward to its hard work and strong defense. The Yellows were able to defeat La Liga's defending champion by 0-1 with an extraordinary performance of the entire team. Vietto scored the winning goal with six minutes to go. His strike was an spectacular play after a great pass by Moi, broking by Diego Godín and placing the ball in style beyond Miguel Ángel Moya.
