With another stellar performance for Atletico Madrid, Joao Felix completed the perfect week after his Champions League brace.
Very few will argue that Joao Felix is currently the best player in the Spanish La Liga, he completed a perfect week for Atletico Madrid. The young Portuguese player was coming fresh out of an outrageous performance against RB Salzburg in the Champions League. He scored a brace against the Austrian squad and gained praise from all around the world.
‘Cholo’ Simeone only wanted him to confirm this great moment on Saturday as the Colchoneros faced Osasuna in Pamplona. El Sadar received young Joao Felix in a great moment as he was looking to maintain himself as the most dominant player in Spanish football. Things started well for him as Vitolo was taken down inside the box during the first half of the match.
Penalties are Joao’s responsibility, which gave him a chance to score his third goal in two matches. His shot was impossible to save for the goalkeeper as it went through the far bottom corner. With the 0-1 result, all players took a break.
Joao scores another beauty for the Colchoneros.
As the second half progressed, Joao Felix felt more comfortable by the minute next to Angel Correa. The Argentine forward is one of the few who understands Felix better than anybody on the pitch, something he proved with 20 minutes left on the clock. As they combined moving forward, he set Joao with an assist right on the outskirts of the box. However, Joao didn’t precisely have a major advantage. Regardless of the difficult position, Felix solved the problem by releasing a powerful strike to the top corner.
Another outrageous goal from the best La Liga player of the season so far. With ten minutes left on the clock, Usasuna pulled one back through Budimir. But Lucas Torreira scored his first goal as an Atletico Madrid player after a brilliant assist from Kieran Trippier. A 1-3 away victory in which Joao Felix led his squad for the second consecutive match.
