Las Palmas stun Atletico with 2-1 victory in La Liga


Martin Zubimendi of Real Sociedad is put under pressure by Rodrigo De Paul adm Alvaro Morata of Atletico de Madrid during the LaLiga EA Sports match between Atletico Madrid and Real Sociedad at Civitas Metropolitano Stadium on October 08, 2023 in Madrid, Spain.

Atletico Madrid have squandered their chance to go joint top of the Spanish league after a surprise 2-1 defeat at Las Palmas.

The capital side started the day in third place - three points behind Real Madrid and Girona but with a game in hand.

Having won their previous six league games, Atletico were a hot favourite to make it seven straight but second-half goals from Kirian Rodriguez and Benito Ramirez gave the home side a healthy lead.

Alvaro Morata pulled a goal back for the visitors with seven minutes remaining but it was not enough to salvage a point.

For Las Palmas the victory was their first win against Atletico this century. They had previously lost all of their last eight encounters between the sides.

The defeat was just the second all season for Diego Simeone's side and they remain in third place.

"Our run is over, which is a shame," Atletico keeper Jan Oblak said. "But now we need to lift our heads."

Las Palmas moved up to ninth. They have now won four of their last five league games.
