The Submarine is the first team to beat Atletico at their stadium in 18 month
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.
