UEFA Qualifier: Atlético Madrid 3 Vojvodina 0

Posted by atleti on August 16, 2007

QUE PARTIDAZO DEL ATLETI! We have one foot in the doorway to UEFA Cup action after a fantastic, convincing performance tonight! We didn’t have to suffer through our victory! Los Rojiblancos played magnificiently for long spells of the game. This is a team that will bring pride back to el Vicente Calderón stadium.

We ended the first half 1-0 thanks to a 37th minute close-range strike by Maxi (assist by kun Aguero); in truth, it should have ended 2-0 since the Argentine had a goal wrongly ruled offside in the 13th minute.

At one point, we held 80% possession.

Excellent performances: kun Aguero (#1, flawless), Maniche (amazing performance!), Forlan (class act), Raul Garcia (pacey), Simao, Maxi, Seitaridis, even Pernia! Good exchanges between kun and Forlan; Maniche was tremendous and was most unfortunate to have a shot at goal saved.

2nd Half Notes

-A second yellow issued to Miroslav Milutonovic in the 47th minute.

-61 minute goal by Forlan (assist by Maniche)

-69th minute goal by Aguero (assist by Forlan)

Conclusion
I couldn’t be happier about this 1st leg performance with all the key players back in the squad. We played brilliantly and strongly.

Leo franco, Seitaridis, Pablo, Perea, Pernia, Raul Garcia, Maniche, Maxi (Jurado min 81), Forlan, Simao (Reyes min 64), Aguero (Luis Garcia min 75)

Among the unused subs? LUCCIN. Please let this mean the end of the rubbish Frenchman.

Starting 11:

–Leo Franco–
Seitaridis–Pablo–Perea–Pernia
Raul Garcia–Maniche–Maxi
Simao–Forlan–Aguero

BRING ON THE 2nd (away) LEG and, more importantly, BRING ON THE MADRID DERBY!

Aupa Atleti!
