January 23, (THEWILL) – Atletico Madrid beat Valencia 3-2 at the Wanda Metropolitano, overcoming a two-goal deficit in the second half to avoid defeat for the 15th time in a row.

Valencia manager José Bordalás had reason to grin at the break after strikes from Yunus Musah and Hugo Duro in the first quarter, but the hosts re-emerged from the half time interval a different side.

Diego Simeone’s team pushed forward with purpose at every opportunity, putting Domenech and the defence under severe pressure from a variety of angles.

Matheus Cunha pulled a goal back just after the hour mark, but two goals in 11 minutes of added time from Angel Correa and Hermoso saw the Rojiblancos snap a three-game losing streak.

Meanwhile, Valencia was unable to provide much in the second half as the Che were pushed deeper and deeper into the game.

Bordalas will be upset with his team’s late-game defence, since Omar Alderete’s injury had a huge impact on the backline. Atletico Madrid is in fourth place, putting distance between themselves and Real Sociedad, while Valencia remains in ninth place.

Simeone’s charges will play Barcelona on February 6 and will be looking for a win. Valencia will play Cadiz in the Copa Del Rey on February 2, followed by a LaLiga match against Real Sociedad four days later.
