Numancia falls on a free kick against a powerful Atlético de Madrid

Final. 0-4. A clear triumph for Atlético de Madrid, candidate for everything in Spain and Europe, even if Numancia gave a good feeling in this first friendly match of the pre-season, thinking of its debut in the First RFEF. In fact, in the end, three of Atletico’s four goals came from set pieces, and Numancia missed a penalty with 0-0. Lots of pre-season left, but good Numancia from what was seen in a crowded municipal stadium in El Burgo de Osma, maybe even more than other years.

Minute 75. 0-4. A few more changes and few chances. Second stop to cool off as it is over 30 degrees in El Burgo de Osma.

Minutes 60. 0-4. Atlético goes to the goal for a quarter of an hour. What a great team Simeone’s men have put together. Diego Martínez also changed the whole team, logical in this first game. After a Numantine approach early in the second half, Cunha almost inadvertently scored with a header from another set piece.

Rest. 0-3. Another goal out of a corner. This time De Paul, at minute 46, completes the first shot from the edge of the box. He touches the ball on a player, whose also rojiblanco Kondogbia, deceives Isma Gil. The quality of the Champions League team prevails, which also produced a great squad.

Min. 31. 0-2. Just after half an hour, Correa scored 0-2. Just like the 0-1, another great goal with his left foot, this time finishing a corner kick going backwards from almost the top of the small box. Too bad there is no defender nearby in case of a free kick. There were hardly any more chances in this quarter of an hour.

Min. 15. 0-1. Very emotional start to the match. Numancia had two clear chances, especially a missed penalty from Carrillo which Oblak saved. Shortly after, before the 10 minute, a superb goal from Lemar in the top corner, taking advantage of a gap left by Morata. And just before the quarter of an hour, another good red shot, with Dani Sánchez who shoots wide from the left for not having dared to shoot from the right.

Great atmosphere at Numancia-Atlético de Madrid, first pre-season match for both. The Madrid team arrives this time at El Burgo de Osma with all its players, including several world football stars, after their best men did not come last year when the European Championship had just ended.
