Memphis Depay and Yannick Carrasco gave Atletico Madrid a deserved 2-1 friendly win over Manchester City.

Kick-off was delayed by 40 minutes after torrential rain in Seoul and a lively contest ensued, with City having the most of a fast-paced first half but Alvaro Morata and Thomas Lemar spurning Atleti’s best two chances.

Kyle Walker rattled the crossbar from distance and substitute Mateo Kovacic went wide before Atletico’s big changes paid off as Memphis and Carrasco produced a wonderful finish from distance for the home side.

Ruben Dias headed home Sergio Gomez’s late corner but Pep Guardiola’s winners were unable to find an equalizer ahead of next weekend’s Community Shield clash with Arsenal.
