Joao Felix was brilliant against Elche, as he scored one goal and constantly threatened the goal with six shots in the game. He converted a cross from Griezmann to open the scoring for the hosts. The Portuguese international continued his good form from the World Cup and the Copa Del Rey matches before that.
Atletico Madrid rose to the occasion and found the back of the net twice to secure three points that would take them back to the top four. Even though it was not an entirely convincing show from Simeone’s men, they secured their eighth win of the season. Elche, on the other hand, added salt to their wound by losing their eleventh game and the fourth consecutive one.
