Deportivo Alaves hosted Atletico de Madrid in Mendizorroza for the opening match of LaLiga Matchday 7. Diego Simeone's men suffered their first defeat in the league (1-0), also synonymous with the very first success of the Babazorros after six consecutive defeats. The locals can thank their captain Victor Laguardia (1-0, 4th), author of the only goal of the match in the 3rd minute on a good corner taken from the far post.

After conceding the opener, Antoine Griezmann's Colchoneros, who played the entire game for the first time since his return to Atletico, were unable to find the fault because of a lack of accuracy in the last gesture (1 shot on target in 13) against an opposing block well back and very compact. The Madrilenians are not preparing in the best possible way their trip to San Siro to face AC Milan on weekdays in the Champions League.
