Copa del Rey:Orihuela 0 Atlético de Madrid 1

Posted by atleti on October 29, 2008

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.

    Villareal lost 5-0, so it’s a good win.

    Off topic but the PSV match will be at the Calderon with no fans-bummer. Aguirre is out for the next two CL matches-probably not a big deal.
