Atlético Madrid B are yet to win an away game this season, so it was business as usual when they lost against Vecindario in Gran Canaria on Sunday (1-0).

In the first encounter of the season between our reserves and Vecindario striker Yeray had decided the match with a late goal. The winger once again earned the three points for his team with a goal in the 7th minute which proved to be enough for the home side.

For the first time this season coach Antonio Rivas started with both Borja and Collado in the line-up, but their teammates weren’t able to provide the strikers with useful balls. However, just after the break Collado got the best opportunity to level the score.

Our reserves were awarded a penalty and the top scorer stepped up, but just like Diego Forlan did with the first team this weekend, he missed. To make matters worse, Collado got himself sent off shortly after with his second yellow card of the match. With a man down Atleti weren’t able to unlock Vecindario’s defence in the remaining half hour.

After three consecutive losses Atlético B are now back in the relegation zone.

Line-up: Iago; César, Regalón, Míchel (“68 Saúl), Cantero; Batres (“46 Hermosa), Joseph, Sergio Marcos, Mínguez (“76 Miramón); Collado and Borja.

Goals: 1-0 Yeray (“7)

    hahahaa, true.

    Could it that the backroom staff (coaches) are the source of the problem??
    Everytime I play this “Football Manager” game, atleti always has one of the worst backroom staff I know..

  • The more they loose, the more I love Atlético! As bad as it may be, I will only shout “Atléti!Atléti!Atléti!Atléti!Atléti!”
    FORZA Rojiblancos!

    of course they are bad at this moment, bunch of players that carried last season went either on loans or in other clubs or in first team. Also, Koke is currently with first team, Pulido is injured and Borja just recovered from serious injury. That means that right now there is practically no player left from last year in the team. In my opinion, Rivas is doing really good job. You can’t really expect anything better than survival.

  • Martin Rosenow

    Borja injured himself yet again in this game. The club reports it as a grade 1 knee sprain.

  • Sash

    Didn’t it say it’s a 1 degree ankle sprain? I think it said that again on the report of todays practice.. Could be wrong though

  • Martin Rosenow

    Wow, I must have misread it. You’re right, it was his ankle. That’s good news.
