Cerro Reyes puts a halt to Atlético B’s rise

Our reserves remain in the relegation zone

Cerro Reyes Atletico Madrid B

Atlético B against Cerro Reyes last year

Atlético Madrid B had taken seven points from the last three games, but lost 2-0 to Cerro Reyes on Sunday.

Even though striker José Collado returned we still lacked offensive prowess. In the second half the home team made us pay for our misses with two strikes within ten minutes to seal the win.

It’s the story of the season, as Atlético B again played a good first half, but failed to convert the opportunities that were created.

In the second half Cerro Reyes scored from two crosses into our box. First it was Torres who netted in the 60th minute and ten minutes later Golo made it two after Atlético failed to clear another ball in.

The good news for Atlético was the return of Collado and also Roberto Batres. The duo had made their first minutes in a friendly earlier this week and returned to league action on Sunday.

Our reserves hope to end the year on a high note and leave the relegation places in the last league match of this calender year. Next week they take on Cacereño at home.

Line-up: Iago; César, Regalón, Atienza, Cantero; Koke, Sergio Marcos; Perea (“75 Saúl), Noguera (“65 Roberto), Mínguez (“75 Batres); and Collado.

Goals: 1-0 Torres (“60); 2-0 Golo (“70)
