But was not this expected against a team like Rayo who plays with a very open attacking style?Horrendous game. But we got the three points.
I think Atleti went into some sort of Rayo-mode at times during the game which was a normal characteristic under Aguirre and Abel's time. The players weren't concentrated enough and loosend up way too much for my liking in terms of defensive duties. The important thing is that we scored in crucial times during the game and scoring four goals when you're not really on top of your game is a strength. Another very important strength is that there's production from other people when the main line aren't scoring. Secondary scoring is so important if we want to go far in all tournaments. I think it's quite good that people think Atlético's just one or two players. They'll be surprised.But was not this expected against a team like Rayo who plays with a very open attacking style?
Sosa was everywhere on the pitch and got a good assist. Diego Costa still searching for his first goal of 2014.
Manquillo was pretty poor 1. A bit unlucky penalty 2. Rayo' first goal.
