In that period, Espanyol could score through Borja Iglesias mediation, Leo Baptistao, who crashed a ball on the post of Oblak, and Esteban Granero, while at Atletico, Griezmann had his chance on three occasions.

In the second half, the match was more equal, until Griezmann solved a Granero penalty on Koke, which the referee, Melero López, had whistled and confirmed the VAR, despite the fact that the play was over with Ángel Correa .
