LA LIGA WEEK 26--THE MADRID DERBY
Saturday the 4th of March 2006​

VS

Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid​

Destination: Santiago Bernabeu


Expected Atleti Starting 11 (If International Injuries dont occur):

25- Leo Franco,
_2- Velasco,
22- Pablo,
21- Perea,
_3- A.Lopez,
23- Luccin,
11- Maxi,
20- Gabi,
17- M.Petrov,
10- Kezman,
_9- Torres

Expected Subs:
Cuellar, Colsa, Garcia Calvo, Zahinos, Molinero, Valera, Ibagaza​

For Atletico this will be regarded as the greatest time to be playing against their Madrid rivals, After 2 straight defeats Real have now started to look tired after what is turning out to be another frustrating season, the midweek resignation of president Florentino Perez will also be a cloud hanging over the team, in particular the 'Galacticos' in which many think are playing for their futures. Real Madrid will once again welcome the freshly fit Raul but will be without English defender Jonathan Woodgate, Atletico Madrid will be without Galletti.
Real Madrid are the favourites according to the bookmakers, here are the odds for the game:
Real Madrid 5/2 (favs) Draw 7/2 Atletico Madrid 4/1

PS: We went 7 years without winning a derby from 1992 to 1999.

The year is now 2006 and another 7 years have elapsed.

We are the form team of the division going into this game. The omens look good.

No Maxi or Ibagaza, that sucks. On the bright side, Ronaldo and Ramos won't play for Real.
That ain't a bad news :)

And Solari is not there now...he always seems to play well against us

they were very lucky also, we dominated the play, especially in the first half, if the goal is given to Cassano it shouldnt be allowed because he was miles offside

No wonder Athletico is 9th or something. With such unstable form they gonna screw it all. How come you manage to have thrilling display against Barca and then suck big time against Real. They invited you to win with non existant defense and slow pace. I'm very dissapointed with Torres, he should score easy 2 goals.

It's the classical "little brother syndrome" where Atletico as the little brother has too much fear and respect for Real. It didn't help with Torres bottling it once again either.

I can't deny that Atlético tried it. They had chances, they went for the game, but the 2 absences were noticed. Without Ibagaza, Atlético becomes predictable and too direct, because there's no midfield. Maxi is the "goal man" and Atlético lacked punch in the last mts.

Torres failed once more. He can't live just scoring against Barcelona twice a year. His lack of efficiency in attack is scary. I think that he plays with complex against Real Madrid.

BTW, Leo Franco lives under the crossbar. He should have gone for the ball in the first goal. If the crossbar falls one day, it's gonna kill him.

The second goal was offside and without that goal we would have drawed this game.

Real had two chances, we had 4-5 ...

That was the differance!


Husky

PS: What was about the penalyty not given against Kezman?

And thats all I have to say about offside !!!
