La Liga: Ruben Sobrino’s last-gasp goal helps Cádiz surprise Atletico Madrid

Ruben Sobrino scored a dramatic last-gasp scorer with his stomach to give Cádiz a remarkable 3-2 victory over Atletico Madrid, heaping misery on the visitors in a harrowing week for Diego Simeone’s side.

It looked like Joao Felix had saved the Rojiblancos a point from two goals, with an impressive impact off the bench, forcing an own goal and scoring another, stemming the bleeding after their Champions League elimination on Wednesday.

However, after the eight minutes of stoppage time had already expired, Sobrino finished from close range to surprise Atlético in death.

Atletico were still reeling from the dramatic knockout on Wednesday, with Yannick Carrasco’s last missed penalty sealing their fate, and Cádiz immediately seized the advantage.

Theo Bongonda surprised Simeone’s team at Nuevo Mirandilla with a goal just 27 seconds into the game, firing a shot from Pacha Espino to Jan Oblak.

Alex Fernandez doubled Cádiz’s lead with a well-aimed shot in the 81st minute before Luis Hernandez’s own goal gave Atlético hope.

Then Felix, Atletico’s record signing, shot from the edge of the area to equalize with two minutes remaining, which seemed to save his team a point before Sobrino’s goal.

Atlético remain provisionally in third, while Cádiz move up to 18th.
