Just one goal in 514 minutes for Atletico Madrid

Just one goal in 514 minutes for Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid's lack of firepower cost them once again against Real Madrid in the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday evening, in a match that saw Diego Simeone's side lose 1-0.

Los Rojiblancos' best efforts in the match came from Vitolo, Saul Niguez and Angel Correa, but they didn't hit the back of the net.

Atletico's toothless attack also cost them in the Copa del Rey, as they creashed out to lower league side Cultural Leonesa even though they did score one goal in that match.

The stats speak for themselves as Atleti have scored just once in the 514 minutes since their final goal against Barcelona in the Supercopa de Espana semi-final, whilst facing opposition of varying quality.

It is understandable, then, that Simeone was hotly pursuing PSG striker Edinson Cavani during the January transfer window, albeit unsuccessfully.

With Atletico set to take on Liverpool in the Champions League, and facing key fixtures domestically, the Argentine will now need to find a solution to the club's goalscoring drought if they are to consolidate their place in LaLiga Santander's Champions League spots.
