Ultimate Graduate | Athletico Madrid sees light in 4-2 goal-fest

-

Aurora Borealis’ Atlético Madrid took all three points from Hooters’ Ajax with a 4-2 win in an attacking football feast in Group D of The Ultimate Graduate cup.

Serial pest Diego Costa was awarded man-of-the-match honours for his brace but in truth, two clutch stops by goalkeeper Jan Oblak was all that kept the teams from playing out an enthralling 4-4 thriller.

Atletico held the lead for the majority of the night before a moment of madness from Lodi threatened to derail the Spaniards’ grip on the game.

A cynical foul on winger Neres gave the referee no choice but to point to the spot.

A precision finish into the bottom corner by Tadic ensured an edgy finish, however Los Colchoneros managed to hold off and beat the high pressure heat of the Dutch Oven.
