Atlético Madrid B have, like the first team, started 2012 with a goalless draw.
At the Cerro del Espino we were held to a 0-0 scoreline by local rivals Leganés.
It was the B-team’s 10th tie of the season and the third complete shutout in the last four games, which have all ended without a winner.
On Sunday, both teams defended well and Iago was ready whenever the visitors breached the back line.
Atleti created some opportunities from set pieces, but captain Regalón headed wide and Fer’s direct free kick was saved.
Shortly before the end, Pedro had the opportunity to win the game, but he was unable to reach Omar’s cross.
Among the spectactors of the match were Diego Simeone and his staff, who came to check up on the talent in our ranks.
With exactly half of the league matches played, Atleti B are in 8th position on the table and nine points off the play0ff spots. Next week we host Toledo.
Line-up: Iago; Regalón, César Ortiz, Míchel, Cantero; Fer, Sergio Marcos; Omar, Noguera (“76 Cidoncha), N’Doye (“65 Saúl); and Pedro (“81 Gerard).
