Atletico Madrid’s unbeaten run at the start of the 2021/22 La Liga season was brought to an end by Deportivo Alaves on Saturday.
The team managed by Diego Simeone recorded their first defeat of the season after winning four games and drawing two matches in their opening six encounters.
But Alaves imposed a surprising win against the reigning Spanish champions as Victor Laguardia scored the only goal of the game in the 4th minute. Prior to this victory, Alaves had lost all of their five games in La Liga this season.
The defeat means Real Madrid can go five points clear at the top of the table with a win against Villareal tonight.
