Atletico Madrid wrap up LaLiga season with away win over Real Sociedad

Atletico Madrid registered their first hat-trick of away victories in LaLiga since October 2022 following a 2-0 victory over Real Sociedad at the Reale Arena, ending their league campaign with a fifth win in six.

Unbeaten in their previous three away meetings with La Real, Atletico needed only nine minutes to open the scoring on a sun-drenched Saturday afternoon at the Reale Arena as Marcos Llorente’s delicious delivery across the danger zone put the ball on a plate for Samuel Lino to fire past Alex Remiro.

Lino should have doubled the away side’s lead not long after, but the unmarked Brazilian baller disappointingly directed his effort from deep inside the area, the wrong side of the post.

In terms of Sociedad’s best chance of the opening half hour, that fell to Sheraldo Becker, but the striker could only plant his header wide of the mark, with Antoine Griezmann potentially putting off the Dutchman by expertly guarding the back post.

Despite an increased presence in and around Atletico’s box, La Real forcibly returned to the dressing room empty-handed, as Lino’s goal remained the difference maker at half-time.

Beaten only once across their previous five home matches, a determined Sociedad side saw the first sight of goal shortly after the hour-mark - after a period of inactivity following the restart - as Takefusa Kubo forced a smart stop from Jan Oblak.

The Japanese superstar’s effort seemed to reignite the game back into action, as less than 60 seconds later, Atletico wing-back Llorente saw his strike sensationally saved by Remiro.
