After the 19-1 thrashing of CD Arcángel, Atleti also won their second friendly of the pre-season.

In La Albuera, we beat Segunda División B side Gimnástica with four goals in each half.

Gregorio Manzano again started in a 4-4-2 formation, which consisted mostly of canteranos.

Our opponent from the 3rd division hasn’t started their new season yet and only came together to play this friendly match.

After Pedro had already hit the bar it was centre-back Paco Regalón who opened the score.

The big man of the first half was Filipe, who scored our second of the night and also assisted goals for Collado and Pedro.

After the break Manzano brought in 10 new players and switched to a 4-3-3 formation. José Antonio Reyes again played on the left wing.

Diego Costa scored the first and the last goal of the second half, with goals in between by Juanfran and Fran Mérida.

On Saturday we face RSD Alcalá for our third test of the campaign, when hopefully Sílvio, Mario and Salvio return from injury. We could also see Miranda and Domínguez in action, who have only just joined their team-mates in training.

Line-up 1st half: Iago; Manquillo, Pulido, Regalón, Filipe; Noguera, Koke, Raúl García, Saúl; Pedro and Collado.

Line-up 2nd half:: Joel; Valera, Regalón, César, López; Assunção, Gabi, Fran Mérida; Juanfran, Diego Costa and Reyes.

Goals: 0-1 Regalón; 0-2 Filipe; 0-3 Collado; 0-4 Pedro; 0-5 Diego Costa; 0-6 Juanfran; 0-7 Fran Mérida; 0-8 Diego Costa.
