Atletico edge past Osasuna

A wonder strike from Atletico Madrid midfielder Jose Jurado lit up the Vincente Calderon, as they saw off Osasuna 1-0 last night.

Jurado struck a beautiful curling 25 yard strike past Osasuna keeper Ricardo 11 minutes from time to seal the three points for Quique Flores’ men.

It was a victory made even more impressive, given the fact that the home side saw out the final half  hour without Simao, who was dismissed for a second bookable offence following a foul on Cesar Azpilicueta after 57 minutes.

Had it not been for the heroics of teenage keeper David De Gea, Osasuna may have salvaged something from the game as he produced a string of classy stops, including a one handed save from Josetxo in the dying moments as Atletico clung on for the victory.
