The best Atleti have played for months, although Forlan was very quiet.
Atleti unlucky not to score in the first half, but that luck leveled out at the end of the match, with Zaragoza hitting the crossbar twice in two minutes.
By all reports, Quique's arse was on the line in this game, after 5 consecutive defeats. Interesting comment on the commentary, Atleti have conceded twice as many goals when Godin has played, compared to when he hasn't been in the team.
If there is one thing that highlights the disappointment of this season, its has to be the disappointing effect that Godin has had since moving into the central defensive role. Also, Elias, fair enough he only played ten minutes, but he needs to do something special soon to actually prove he is worth 9 million. As he along with Godin, could be very expensive failures.
