 In a remarkable LaLiga encounter, Kirian Rodriguez and Benito Ramirez propelled Las Palmas to a stunning 2-1 victory over Atletico Madrid on Friday, dealing Atletico their first defeat in 10 games across all competitions.

Following this crucial win, Las Palmas made an upward move, climbing one spot to secure the ninth position in the league standings with 17 points. This victory marked their fourth triumph in the last five league matches. On the other hand, despite their recent loss, Atletico remains in a strong third place with 25 points, trailing leaders Real Madrid by a mere three points.

The Estadio Gran Canaria erupted in cheers as Captain Rodriguez brilliantly netted a goal from just outside the box in the 51st minute, with an impressive assist from Javi Munoz, leaving the Atletico defense in disarray. The home side continued their relentless pressure on Atletico, leading to Ramirez's decisive goal in the 75th minute, seizing the opportunity as Atletico relinquished possession in their own half.

Despite Las Palmas' lead, Atletico managed to snatch a glimmer of hope in the 83rd minute when Alvaro Morata capitalized on a well-placed long cross from Rodrigo Riquelme, securing a goal from close range. Nevertheless, Las Palmas maintained their composure and thwarted Atletico's attempts to level the score, securing a historic victory.
