Lionel Messi scores for Barcelona, Angel Correa gets winner for Atletico in Spanish Super Cup

30

Lionel Messi and Angel Correa both scored for their respective teams as Atletico Madrid won 3-2 to reach the final of the Spanish Super Cup.

Atletico Madrid took a 1-0 lead but it was Lionel Messi scoring the first goal for the Catalan’s. A lovely dribble and shot inside the penalty area would draw Barcelona level.

Barcelona would take a 2-1 lead before Atletico would make it 2-2 with Alvaro Morata scoring. Diego Simeone’s men would finally get the winner through Angel Correa. He would be through on goal against Neto and while the Brazilian shotstopper got a touch, Correa’s effort was too much and was the winner.

  1. This guy he is way too emotional
    When comes to young Argentine players.
    He is expecting them to do well
    So fast so quick he doesn’t even
    Look the situation of the player .
    Come on man any player will struggle
    With the situation lo celso in
    New league the manager who brought him
    Has been sacked he has to adopt again
    In Mourinho way of playing which
    Doesn’t suit lo celso plus little comeo
    Here and there top of that Mourinho
    Team have less on the ball and lo celso
    Is of one those players who make more
    Impact when his team have more
    Possessions on the ball
    Why you don’t look how sh..t eriksen Ali
    And moura having way more time and
    Confidence from thier boss but lo celso
    Situation is completely different from
    Those guys if he start and play sh..t like
    those guy he will be first one to sub
    By Mourinho it’s really unfair irrational
    To expect from him to do so well for less
    Minutes playing out of position no
    Confident from his manager but I tell you
    What if spurs continue this way Mourinho
    Will be gone soon cose they only losing
    The games they Performing very badly too
    So defensive the fans ain’t enjoying at the moment I’M sure Danny Levi already
    Regretting sacking poch instead backing him and get ride of dead wood players.

  2. Lo Celso with a crazy miss, the guy is Betis-caliber at maximum. rather be the king of the dogs, than the dog of the kings, argentine midfielder motto, Leverkusen, Udinese, Betis, Zenit the perfect clubs form them, PSG, Spurs, Inter etc over their qualities, mental abilities.

    • “Lo Celso should be deported to Mars for that miss” “Can’t believe professional footballer like Lo Celso on multi milion euros contract misses empty goal from 1 meter , better chance than that one he won’t have again.”

      I have zero faith in young argentine midfielders, zero…this would be Lo Celso last match under Mourinho regim after Foyth.

        In my views lo celso brought some directness for Spurs after coming on as a substitute….he was energetic and was making something happen for Spurs.
        To contrast to you I liked his cameo performance and I also think Mourinho was pleased with his performance.

      • i can tell you’re basing your judgement on a 3 second highlight. The cross was actually really hard fast ball to connect with. Not as easy as perceived from a highlight. Son missed a bunch too, are you going to say hes poor?

        If you actually watched the game, you would know that he did well, instantly improving the teams momentum. And guess what, no shit players are going to lack confidence with the low minutes during Spurs transitional period. Regardless, Eriksen gone soon, hes mentally checked out.. i think Mourinho has plans to make Lo Celso a starter, he’s just taking his time.

        Lo Celso for Eriksen
        Lamela for Lucas

      • “I have zero faith in young argentine midfielders, zero…this would be Lo Celso last match under Mourinho regim after Foyth”.

        I have zero faith in you. Just matter of time when Lo Celso will makes you embarassed as usually it is after your radical statements.

        To support what @choripan said.
        The fans of Tottenham are in support of Lo Celso. He brings creativity to the team and they immediately become better when he gets subbed on. The supporters see that and I’m sure Mourinho does too. Eriksen will leave and Lo Celso will sign permanently and become the replacement starter – and he will prove you wrong @csabalala1

        For Argentina Lo Celso would fit perfectly in 4-3-1-2 as the 1.

    • @ casablala

      Seriously your comments are a joke! It’s one thing to be critical but it’s a whole other thing to revel when a player has a bad game, it’s like you enjoy it when an Argentine player has a bad game, which is clearly the attitude of a troll/hater.
      Celso was voted by Marca as one of the best midfielders in Spain and you think it’s easy to own la liga, score 16 goals all the while playing for a mid table team in a strong league? What about Pogba and Coutino? They failed at the so called ‘big clubs’ that you seem to love so much, do you see any of us calling them ‘dogs among kings’? Grow up man!
      Againt with the Udinese s**t. You don’t seem to understand the concept and significance of a player performing well in a small club at a big league, that’s what De Paul is doing and that’s why Inter, Napoli and now even Juv are seriously interested in him.
      As for ‘ Leverkusen’, yeah I need to remind you that Palacios was *this* close to signing with real had it not been for his injury.

      I’ve heard you talk non sense time and time again and you don’t seem to learn, or maybe you just like to troll. You said Celso was loser who isn’t even good enough for Betis and then he started banging in goals and that seemed to shut you up until now. Then you called Lautaro a ‘perspective benchwarmer’ and now you’re kissing his ass and a few days ago you praised A.Correa even though a few months ago you were sure that he was gonna warm the bench for Atletico. So how about you just sit down, relax and wait for the season to end before you start dissing and passing final judgement on players.

  3. Juan foyth’s career at Spurs is as good as over. Today against Liverpool Jose is playing an untested 20 year old tanganga in the back 3 defence foyth hasn’t been included in any. Of the last 3 matchday trips so sad I tnk he shud submit a transfer request come summer and also scaloni must not select him for the Copa America

  4. Ocampus at Left Midfield role would be exciting to see.As Ocampus is not speedster and relies on his short passing skills and good in retaining ball possession.

  5. Right, Correa will not be called up by Scaloni. He had been called before and didn’t perform well. Alario and Ocampos are better and suit with Scaloni’s playing scheme. However Correa need to move from Atletico and get more plenty playing time not just as a super subs

    • He’s not a supersub and never has been one, he always played regularly for Atletico. The only reason he was on the bench at the beginning of this season was because he wanted to leave in the summer and ofcourse Simeone wasn’t gonna start someone who wanted to leave, never the less Correa regained his starting place with good performances and hard work. In saying all that I agree with you that Correa needs to move from Atletico because Simeone’s defensive style continues to blunt his potential. I can see him doing really well in Ajax, Napoli or even Liverpool.

  6. Arsenal and Manchester United are gonna fight for exequiel barco, but neither clubs are really that good for argentines.

    I don’t remember any Argentine at arsenal other than Martinez and about MU , they are awful at players management .

    If he wants , barco should seek for serie a or Dutch league, good ones to start with.

    • Rojo had 1 great season at CB but you’re right, United isn’t a good place especially during their current transitional period.

      Forgot El Chiquito… United fans love him

      • If I am not wrong, both rojo and Romero had a great season back in the year 2017, although the latter one earning less starts than the former one and it was under Mourinho only.

        Back in those days, MU used to have a good reputation when it came to Argentine players , when legends like veron ,tevez and heinze played, but now it’s all over.

        Same with Barca and Madrid ,now they are more into Brazilians than argentines .

    • No the past is the past. I believe that the players of the new generation will fit well both clubs, especially Manchester, they need players. Most of those young players of this team are very overrated. Many Argentinean players have their place in the 11 especially the attacking midfielders. I think of Lo Celso, De Paul and Buendia.

  7. This Barca is done, too slow too passive. It’s worked for years because they had players very capable of keeping the ball, once that’s gone, it’s become a very vulnerable team. Even with 3 defensive midfielders and a Griezemann who defends a lot, this team still appeared very unbalanced. Suarez is almost the only player who can help a bit Messi in attack.

    • #VALVERDEOUT

      Even with the issues, I still think they are 2nd best after Liverpool (PSG maybe). Hope valverde gets canned.. ridiculous to keep extending his contract. Monday will be another decision, we’ll see what happens

    • I don’t blame on their coach, ok he is average but actually he is trying to change Barca style because it’s no more possible to play as before without Iniesta and Xavi. For example he use 2 DM, play Messi as 10. The idea is not so bad. Its just hard to make it work because their hiring decision is always weird. He does not have right players for changing. Some senior guys have too much power in the dressing room. They got to sell Busquets, Pique, Alba, Rakitic and Sergio Roberto.

  8. Hopefully Simeone can win a prize again. It’s been a few years since the last one.
    The people that want Correa back in the NT should re-watch the last friendly against Germany.
    Correa was awful, did not defend well or sometimes not at all against Germany’s wing back and was rightfully substituted. We have plenty of better players for our forward line.

    • I like him a lot too but seems hard for him to come back indeed. Currently NT need more a right midfielder than a winger, someone defend well and can drop deep to create and to link. So that Messi can focus more on attack. Correa is actually not even a natural winger so it’s tough. In his favourite position we have already too many players including Messi and Dybala. It’s a shame because we need fast player in attack able to break the lines.

    • ??? Simeone one of the best defensive coach knows it better imo that Correa can defend or not, one mistake is nothing, he was always good and dangerous for us, and Tagliafico? He played horrible again vs pacy wingers, again and again, France match was not enough? Absolute panic, Correa cant defend instead of him too, a striker only help in defense, we played in 4-3-3. If drop Correa for one bad match drop Tagliafico too for his countless bad performances.
