Jornada 22: Atlético de Madrid v Murcia
Posted by atleti on February 2, 2008
A few words from Aguirre on the game:
“A victory would be great for all of us; we’d end the bad run of form and would allow us to continue in the Champions zone.”
“The game against Murcia will be a nervous one.”
STARTING 11: Abbiati; Perea, Pablo, Eller, Pernía; Maxi, Motta, Raúl García, Simao; Agüero & Forlán.
SUBS: Falcón, Antonio López, Luis García, Cléber, Miguel, David Fernández, Didi.
Complaint? I would have preferred to see Miguel occupy Maxi’s spot. Bench the Argentine, I say– in truth, he has been playing rather poorly. Miguel, on the other hand, has shown signs that he is more than ready to play from the very start.
INJURED: Seitaridis, Jurado, Leo Franco, Zé Castro, Valera & Mista.
MURCIA’S RECENT AWAY FORM:
3-1 loss against Zaragoza.
4-0 loss against Barcelona.
1-1 draw against Athletic.
3-1 loss against Sevilla.
1-1 draw against Mallorca.
Dismal record for the newly promoted team.
They currently sit #17 with 22 points.
This a team we should and must win. No ifs, ands, or buts. It’s bad enough we drop points against them in round 2 (uninspired 1-1 draw).
A big win is what everyone (club, players, & supporters) needs.
