Angel Correa scores third goal of the season for Atletico in 1-0 win vs. Elche


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.


  1. Any coach has to submit their squad 15 days prior to the WC qualifier match. It seems like Scaloni already submitted the list of 32 players a couple of days ago, but did not go in public.

    Now the injury of Icardi and Marchesin, change 2 spots. Dybala and Ledesma will replace them. The list of 32 is as follows:

    Arqueros: Franco Armani, Emiliano Martínez, Juan Musso y Jeremías Ledesma.

    Defensores: Gonzalo Montiel, Nahuel Molina, Cristian Romero, Nicolás Otamendi. Juan Foyth, Lucas Martínez Quarta, Germán Pezzella, Lisandro Martínez, Nicolás Tagliafico, José Luis Palomino y Marcos Acuña.

    Mediocampistas: Rodrigo De Paul, Leandro Paredes, Giovani Lo Celso, Exequiel Palacios, Guido Rodríguez, Nicolás Domínguez, Emiliano Buendía y Alejandro Gómez.

    Delanteros: Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martínez, Lucas Ocampos, Nicolás González, Ángel Correa, Paulo Dybala, Ángel Di María, Julián Álvarez y Joaquín Correa


  2. Matias Zaracho played great vs River Plate:
    Seems a versatile attacking midfielder with box to box tendencies. he and Nacho Fernandez raised Atletico Mineiro to the next level (first in brasileiro and big favourite in Libertadores).

  3. Angel Correa club career so far (San Lorenzo plus Atletico): right winger 143 matches (7906 minutes=88 full matches) 17 goals 19 assists…second striker 85 matches (5221 minutes=58 full matches) 14 goals 23 assists, “quasi” centre forward in 4-4-2 55 matches (3905 minutes=43 full matches) 16 goals 16 assists, left winger 25 matches (1345 minutes=15 full matches) 8 goals 2 assists…plus played in 2 matches as offensive midfielder and in 2 as right midfielder too. (stats from transfermarkt). As we’ve seen he could be much more producive in the middle areas as centre forward or second striker or even left winger, in the right he has to defend a lot under Simeone.

  4. Emi Buendai is looking little slow in Aston Villa if compare to Norwich form.Soon he will find his top form. Dybla is also looking in good form one goal and one assist.Under Allegiri he will shine.

  5. These two angels Angel Correa and Angel Di Maria going to be most important for WC 2022.
    I think Angel Correa going to score 25+ goals in La liga this season he is best for Left Wing in Argentina team.

    • 10-15 goals imo, not a centre forward and wont play in every game, even Luis Suarez cant score 25 goals in Atletico with penalties, Correa has a lot of defending tasks too.

    • It was supposed to be a couple of days ago but the the injury of Icardi changed everything. Now it should be announced very soon as all the players have completed their league matches.

      Dybala now is rumored to make it. All the 28 Copa America players + 5 have their spots reserved except Marchesin and Aguero who are injured.

      I think the list will be the Copa America players plus 1-2 replacements of Icardi.
