Real Madrid defeated Atlético of Madrid 5-3 in a fast-paced Madrid derby, and they advanced to the final thanks to an own goal by Stefan Savic in the 116th minute and a goal by Brahim Díaz in the second half of extra time.

Atlético Madrid

The first of three derbies between Ancelotti’s club and Atlético in less than a month was won by the team in a thrilling match that featured plenty of pace and options and was settled in extra time in the classic fashion of the white team.

The duel did not result in penalties, in contrast to the 2020 final, but the result remains the same. Real Madrid, on the other hand, eliminated the lone opponent who had been able to defeat them this season as Atlético was unable to pay off the remaining debt with the tournament.

Real Madrid Start

Real Madrid started the game with the intention of pushing forward, but Mario Hermoso’s goal at the six-minute mark dealt them an unexpected blow. The red-and-white center defender headed only Griezmann’s corner kick, making the score 0-1.

Before the goal, Lino attacked the left wing, sending a poisoned ball to Kepa’s left corner, forcing the goalie for the white team to fly and deflect it for a corner.

Regaining possession, the Basque goalkeeper first stopped the goal, but his defense let him down on the ensuing corner kick, and he was powerless to save Hermoso’s goal.

Real Madrid attempted to equalize, but Atlético quickly released the pressure and put the white goal in jeopardy once more. For instance, Morata forced a finish at the far post after De Paul’s drive culminated in a cross from Marcos Llorente, which Simeone delayed to the right side to introduce Saúl into the middle.

Bellingham and Rodrygo said that they had the backing of the Saudi supporters, who in the Al-Awall Park stands overwhelmingly cheered for the white players. And twenty minutes in, Rüdiger knotted the score with another brilliant header from a set piece, similar to the one from Mallorca.

Real Madrid rushed for the second goal after Atlético gave up the first one, smelling blood. Rodrygo in from the left flank and sent Oblak running for a corner before warning with a shot. And then came Mendy’s unexpected goal.

After thirty minutes of play, Carvajal placed a low ball into the center of the area, and the French full-back, who was making his comeback after a muscle injury, entered as if he were a ‘9’ to prolong his teammate’s assist with a delicate touch with the outside that slipped past Giménez’s legs and into Oblak’s right post.

Atlético’s troubles persisted, but a squad with stars like Griezmann on staff may occasionally find respite. With 174 points, the Little Prince became the red and white team’s all-time leading scorer after receiving the ball on the balcony of the area, turning around, breaking Modric’s waist, and putting a hard shot at Kepa’s right post.

Even though it appeared like the first half would conclude with a score of 2-2, this intense derby had one more intense feeling left before the half ended. Rodrygo had one final action, forcing Oblak to escape the third in two stages after controlling and advancing within the space between Savic and Giménez.

Half Time

At halftime, Ancelotti and Simeone were unwilling to make any physical contact. Both teams had a great game, and we wanted to hold onto that emotion as long as we could. Alberola Rojas also added to the spectacle by allowing him to participate as much as the rules permitted him to; during the game, he did not issue any warnings to any players in order to keep the action moving along quickly.

Real Madrid

Atlético may have taken the lead at the beginning of the second half if Carvajal had released the ball incorrectly, but Lino mishandled the ball after collecting it from Morata.

With twenty seconds remaining, Real Madrid hit back with a fast Vinicius free kick for Carvajal, who sent a strong volley that caused Oblak to make a fantastic save to keep his team in the game.

Real Madrid Game Last Time

The game ended with an own goal by Rüdiger in the 78th minute, but the white team (Real Madrid ) appeared stronger in the final moments of play. In the match’s thirteenth twist, Kepa emerged to stop a red-and-white cross that was headed towards Morata. However, after colliding with the forward, the ball escaped him 2-3.

However, Atlético’s happiness was short-lived as Vinicius needed seven minutes to receive the ball and put Oblak to the test, failing to catch it. After Bellingham’s shot was stopped by Hermoso on the rebound, Carvajal was merciless and struck the ball into the net on the second rebound.

With a fantastic individual play inside the box in added time, the recently inserted Brahim was able to secure the victory, but he crossed his shot too far, forcing extra time.

Simeone chose Correa to play in the extension and sat Morata since Memphis was forced to withdraw from the team due to last-minute muscular soreness; nonetheless, his team was now without the ball.

Real Madrid

Both sides’ players were too worn out at this point in the game to sustain the tension for another thirty minutes; Coke and Valverde, who were wounded, were unable to go on, but Real Madrid dominated and overcame its opponent.

And as is virtually always the case when this occurs, especially as the match gets closer to its conclusion, the result is generally catastrophic for his opponent.

This time, the hero was Joselu, who came on in extra time to replace Rodrygo. Rodrygo had headed the fourth white goal of the evening four minutes before the conclusion of normal time with assistance from Savic.

The next play, Griezmann had another chance to equal the score, but his left-footed effort narrowly missed the goal post. Furthermore, with Atlético fully committed, Brahim’s fifth goal would come in extra time. He took advantage of Oblak’s departure to the finish line to direct Atlético for an empty goal from a distance.
