It was vintage Atlêtico Madrid at the El Sadar on Sunday, as Los Colchoneros secured a scrappy 1-0 win against a red-hot Osasuna side gunning for the top-four.
Osasuna looked to play their way into the game, but the ever-solid Atleti back four gave them little room to work with.
The home side continued to push for the opener in the second half, and looked for all the world to have that chance ten minutes in.
The chances continued to fall to the hosts, as just over the hour mark Abde picked out Moi Gómez at the back post, but his side-footed volley was well saved by Jan Oblak.
While Osasuna looked like the heavy favourites to snatch a late winner, they stunned the boisterous crowd inside the El Sadar with 15 minutes remaining.
In some style, Saúl Ñíguez was played in behind the hosts’ defence by Rodrigo De Paul, and the midfielder stabbed home to grab an unlikely lead for Atleti.
However, the result may not come as a shock to the Osasuna faithful, as they have now lost nine straight games against Atleti, failing to score in all of them.
