Trailing the scoreboard due to .’s goal Allvaro Morata In the first half, Rayo focused the last minutes on Atlético’s area, which withstood the pressure until almost 89 minutes, when a shot by Randy Nteka hit the hand of José María Giménez. The referee judged the game in the VAR and determined a penalty. Falcao took the ball, looked to the sky and fired a shot that slipped through the center of the goal as Grbic ducked to the right of the Colombian.

Falcao did not celebrate the goal out of respect for his past with Atlético de Madrid, a club he defended from 2011 to 2013 and with which he won a Copa del Rey, a Europa League and a Supercup from Europe.

This was the first time Falcao took anything positive from his clashes with Atlético de Madrid after leaving the club. In the previous three, two with Monaco, in the Champions League, in the 2018/2019 season, and another with Rayo in the League last season, he always lost.
