Matchday LIVE: Atlético vs. Almería

The red and white aftermath: Match Day 23

Atlético suffered only their second loss of the present league campaign in Almería on Saturday, but it just so happened to be their second loss in the same week. Much has and will continue to be made about referee Fernando Teixeira Vitienes’ atrocious officiating on the evening, and rightfully so, but Atleti have overcome adverse or blown calls all season long.

It has been a turbulent week for Atlético Madrid. With the passing of club legend Adrián Escudero, all of the trouble in the Spanish courts, and our derby-day match with Real Madrid looming on the horizon, one would almost forget we travel to Andalusia on Saturday afternoon to take on UD Almería.


La Liga: Atlético 1 – 1 Almería

Atlético Madrid were held to a 1-1 draw at home on Sunday night by underdogs Almería, thanks to a couple of fantastic individual performances from the away side.

Forlán can break the curse on Halloween

Haunted by a month-and-a-half long spell without a goal to his name, Diego Forlán will be eager to welcome Almería to Madrid this Sunday for a chance to finally banish his demons. The 31-year old has scored a goal in each of Almería’s last three Liga visits to the Calderón, and will be keen on taking the streak up to four on Halloween night.
