Atlético faces Montevideo Wanderers tonight at 19:00 GMT+1 in the third place match of the Trofeo Colombino in Huelva. The Uruguayan side was defeated 2-0 Tuesday by event hosts Recreativo Huelva. The Rojiblancos suffered their third consecutive pre-season defeat in a 1-0 loss to Sporting Gijón last night. Atleti will be looking for a morale boosting victory in what will be its last preparation game prior to the UEFA Supercup engagement with Inter on 27 August.
Leandro Cabrera won’t be wearing the red-and-white shirt this season after Recreativo managed to wrap up a deal that will see him spend the season on loan with them. The player will be officially presented on Monday, but could make a debut for his new club this Saturday against Badajoz.
