Correa, Carrasco helps Atletico Madrid stay unbeaten in La Liga

20/09/2017

Angel Correa and Yannick Carrasco scored second-half goals as Atletico Madrid extended their unbeaten La Liga start to five matches with a 2-1 win at Athletic Bilbao.

Atletico, unbeaten in six games in all competitions this season, broke the deadlock through Correa 10 minutes into the second half and Carrasco added a second in the 73rd minute.

Bilbao, who slipped to a first home defeat of the season, squandered a first-half penalty when Aritz Aduriz's spot kick, for Filipe Luis' foul on Raul Garcia, was saved by Jan Oblak.

Bilbao midfielder Garcia struck a late consolation for the Basque side in the second minute of time added on.
