Jornada 4: Atlético Madrid 4 Racing Santander 0
Posted by atleti on September 23, 2007
Thoroughly deserved victory over a Racing side that did absolutely nothing prior to and after the sending off of Jordi in the 64th minute. We had the better chances throughout the game.
Raúl García 11′
Kun 69′ [Assist by Reyes.]
Forlán 76′ [Assist by Kun.]
Simao 86′ [Assist by Luis.]
Here’s Aguirre’s squad:
Leo Franco; Seitaridis; Perea; Pablo; Pernía; Maniche; Raúl García; Maxi (Simao 59′); Reyes (Luis Garcia 75′); Kun (Mista 86′); Forlán.
Reyes made an absolute difference and I think he has earned himself a starting 11 spot for our next fixture; hard-working & creating opportunities. Aguirre was brave enough to sub Maxi out after another mediocre performance. He didn’t make a negative substitution, thankfully, and brought in Simao. Great game for Kun too.
Aguirre breathes a sigh of relief.
ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT: The sending off of Jordi helped us considerably. There’s still much work to do in terms of style of play and scoring more goals against a side with 11 players (and holding on to our lead).

Raul can’t contain himself after scoring the opening goal.
