After losing to La Roda on Sunday, Atlético Madrid B suffered another 2-1 defeat against CD Lugo.
The match, originally scheduled on the 5th, was played on Wednesday night at the Estadio Ángel Carro de Lugo.
The home side won its fourth consecutive game and haven’t dropped a single point this campaign, while Atleti B are on four points after as many games.
There was even more bad news for Milinko Pantic, as midfield general Fer broke his hand in three places and will need to undergo surgery.
On the bright side, the coach did have Kader available, after Atleti succesfully appealed the right back’s expulsion in the 2-1 loss to La Roda.
Lugo took the lead after just 12 minutes, when Berodia scored with a low shot.
After the goal, Atlético was finally able to escape from the Galician’s pressure and created some chances of their own, but the end product was lacking.
In the second half the B-team continued to look for the equaliser, but Luismi decided the match in Lugo’s favour when he finished off a counterattack.
Pedro‘s consolation goal, his second in four days, came too late for Atlético to salvage a point from this match.
