It would have been nice to win by a large margin against a 2nd-B division club, but…a win is a win is a win.
THE SQUAD: Leo Franco, Antonio López, Perea, Pablo, Pernía, Camacho (Álex Quillo 84’), Raúl García, Luis García, Miguel(Banega 59’); Sinama & Forlán (Keko 88’)
Our one goal was scored by Forlán, thanks to a pass by Antonio López.
A Few Notes/Comments
*This is the second game that Agüero has not played– clearly resting and recuperating from aches & pains.
*It seems odd to me that Aguirre did not rest Forlán sooner– it’s ridiculous to wait until the 88′ to rest the Uruguayan and give Keko his Atleti debut.
*Why didn’t he play Banega in the starting 11? It would have been a logical decision, yes? After all, The Argentine will be serving a suspension on Saturday when he play Mallorca.
*Unfortunately, Camacho injured his ankle towards the end of the game.
The home leg of this game will be played 12 November.
