|Salvio : At Madrid|
The brilliant Football tactician ( its a joke ) ATLETICO DE MADRID Coach Manzano left out some big names & travelled to 2º B Divison team ALBACETE to lose 2 - 1. Nothing to be surprised as one who regularly follows Atletico gets used to such results.
Albacete deserved the victory as they overran Atletico in the first half & half a dozen in the 2º half as well. Albacete scored first in the 31st via a penalty that CALLE converted. Then Atletico got a penalty in the 51st min that earned a red card for Albacete player Nuñez & Atletico forward Adrian missed over the bar.
Albacete with 10 men then managed to get further ahead with a second goal from ZURDO in the 62nd min from a free kick. Here Atletico defender Dominguez earned himself a red card. Thank God - for Atletico - ADRIAN managed an away goal to lessen the embarrassing performance & give Atletico the opportunity to "fix" things in the return game. I bet Atletico Coach Manzano will have it all under control.
|Oviedo - At.Bilbao|
ATHLETIC CLUB BILBAO visited 2º B Division Club REAL OVIEDO & won 0 - 1. The locals were stiff & tough to shake off & Bilbao needed a truly spectacular 10th min goal bt DE MARCOS to take the 1ºst leg tie. The visitors were dominant most of the match but did´nt manage to shut the tie here at the Oviedo stadium. Bilbao will have to finish the job at home with the 2º leg.
