That second goal isn't half as painful as seeing Filipe struggle and probably being taken off at HT. Atleti's only allowed three shots on goal, in reality, only two as Piqué's try wasn't much of a try. Two goals have been scored by Barcelona, it isn't easy to defend against Adriano's type of shot even though Arda gets a bit overexcited.
The first 30 minutes were tremendous, we should've been up 2-0 if Falcao buried his other chance. Good positional play but they're also not running particularly much without the ball so it helps and their pressuring haven't been as good as it is when they're on top of a game. Partly because Atlético is doing a great job defending and our boys are very sharp.
There's still a chance here, however, it's problematic if Filipe's injured. We can't play with Cata at fullback because they'll just make those runs without the ball behind our back and Cata won't be able to read them properly. Maybe surprise them with a backline of three, again, a huge shame Cebolla is injured because he could've played there instead of Filipe. Maybe time to get a bit flexible here as Arda's played at fullback before becoming a professional..although I doubt Cholo will do it.
We have to continue with the "robar y contrar"-tactics because they've got huge problems and no protection if they lose it high up the pitch. Set-pieces is also key. They've been pretty good so far.
