Angel Correa cannot stop scoring as he managed his third goal of the season for Atletico Madrid in their 1-0 win vs. Elche.
Correa, who scored two goals in Atletico’s opening match of La Liga, added a third one today and once more, it was the match winner. With both Correa and Rodrigo De Paul in the starting eleven, the two Copa America winners with Argentine combined for the only goal of the match. He finished last season with 9 goals in the league.
Rodrigo De Paul provided a very similar assist to the one he gave Angel Di Maria in the final of the Copa America with Argentina. A cross from deep as the goalkeeper came out, Correa controlled it and he hit the ball with the outside of his foot for the goal.
Nehuen Perez was an unused substitute for Diego Simeone while Lucas Boye and Ivan Marcone started for Elche. Guido Carrillo was brought on for Elche as was Dario Benedetto who made his debut for the club.
