Jornada 15: Atlético de Madrid v Getafe

Posted by atleti on December 8, 2007

The other Madrileño derby!

For those of us in the USA, it will be live on GolTV.

STARTING 11: Abbiati, Eller, Perea, Pernía, Maniche, Raúl García, Simao, Maxi, Agüero & Forlán.

Will Aguirre choose Antonio López or Valera as right-back? We’ll have to wait & see. At this very moment, he’s unsure. Personally, I’d go with Antonio as he is match-fit.

SUBS: Falcón, Cléber, Zé Castro, Reyes, Mista.

A Few, quick observations:
*It’s great to see Simao chosen instead of Reyes.

*Perea will be playing his first game since returning from returns from injury.

*Omissions: Motta and Miguel. Both are recovered, particularly Motta, but Aguirre has chosen to omit them from the squad list, to avoid further injury setbacks & to most likely use them in Atleti’s upcoming Copa game against Granada.

#10 Getafe 18

Previous ATM v Getafe results:
06/07: 1-0
05/06: 0-1
04/05: 2-2

AaB v Getafe 1-2 (UEFA)

Getafe v Levante 2-1 (LIGA)

Getafe v Hapoel Tel Aviv 1-2 (UEFA)

Real Zaragoza v Getafe 1-1 (LIGA)

Getafe v Barcelona 2-0 (LIGA)

Getafe had a rough start to the season, but have picked up form since their victory in London against Spurs. Fairly good squad, but I’m confident of a win. VAMOS ATLETI!

    Just popping in very quickly to say:

    HT: 1-0, Forlán. Great goal.

    One more thing, if the 1st half was any indication, the 2nd half won’t be a stroll in the park. Insurance goals needed.

    Be back once it’s over.

    FT 1-0.

    I’m speechless. Happy that we won, but speechless. I need a few minutes to recuperate from this one.

    Barcelona 0 Depor 1 after two minutes of play! It’s still too early to tell, though.

    It was great to see Espanyol drop points earlier today, too.

    What a game, so nerve wrecking! Thank God, we won this one.

    The ref totally lost it and couldn’t control the game. He turned the game into a disaster.

    Everything is going in our way today. Hopefully, Barca will drop points too. That would be just perfect.

    I’m going to re-watch it now…& hope that Depor hold on to their lead.

    I’ll be back in a bit with an entry!

    Oh my god whether it’s 7 goals or 1 goal atletico always manages to give me a heart attack. The worst part of this entire game was aguero’s red card, but I don’t really mind that reyes got one since that just makes simao a sure starter and luis garcia will maybe get more liga playing time as a sub. All I can say is oh. my. god. I don’t know how much more i can take!

    Aguero’s first yellow card was a disgrace, it should have been Pato who got yellow carded. This was not a good ref he was throwing yellow cards left, right and centre. And our defending was absolutely awful at times, we were really lucky today. And Reyes, what an idiot!
    Well, we’re in third place since Barca won.
    Looking on the bright side at least Aguero can play in the Copa Del Rey match midweek.

    So how did Atletico turn into a defensive juggernaut?

  10. day1star said

    I hope we’re going to contest Aguero’s sending off, at most he should have had one yellow card.
