Champions: Schalke 1 Atlético de Madrid 0
Posted by atleti on August 14, 2008
Briefly: what a horrendous, embarassing way to begin out 08/09 Champions campaign. Once again, we are left with a bitter taste in our mouths. Again and again… and again.
Two positives in all of this? That it was only a 1-0 loss and that we will have Kun back from international duty for the second leg, in a do or die situation.
As a lot of sources have been reporting, Schalke were far more superior, particularly in the first half, with clear opportunities at goal.
ThE UGLY: We lacked attacking edge and creativity; nervous defending, especially on the flanks; and the explusion of Antonio López in the 74th minute. Anything else to add?
I am most disappointed with Forlán.
Another thing? AGUIRRE IS NOT A CHAMPIONS QUALITY MANAGER. FUERA YA!
Anything missing? Any other positives? Negatives?
