Atlético B threw away a golden opportunity to get their first win of the season away to Leganés on Sunday night. Our second team went one up, but lost again after two second half strikes from the home side.
Rivas’ men were superior in the first half and took the lead through on-loan striker José Collado. It was Atlético B’s first goal of the season, in their third game.
We then tried to double their lead, but José Collado was controversially denied a second goal.
In the second half Leganés turned the score around with goals by Zazo and Arruabarrena, leaving Atlético B with just one point after three league matches.
Alberto Perea wasn’t available, but coach Antonio Rivas was able to welcome back Sebastián Gallegos, after the Uruguayan forward had missed the first two matches due to injury.
Line-up: Iago; Benítez, Regalón, Atienza, Cantero; Miramón, Koke, Sergio Marcos, Mínguez; Saúl and Collado
Subs: Fer (“62), Abel (“83) and Gallegos (“83).
Goals: 0-1 Collado; 1-1 Zazo; 2-1 Arruabarrena
Next week Atlético B will try to get its first win in the home match against Guadalajara.
