Orihuela 0 – Atletico Madrid 1: Forlan’s goal was enough

October 31, 2008

Atlético Madrid achieved a comfortable victory to take back to the Vicente Calderón after they beat Orihuela 0-1 on Wednesday night.

As expected, the quality of Los Rojiblancos overcame Orihuela’s push and Diego Forlán scored the only goal of the game just before half-time as he picked up on a fine pass by Antonio López to slot home from close distance. Atlético are now firmly in a good position to prepare the return leg in two weeks time whilst Orihuela will have to a lot better in the capital if they are to win this tie.

This way, Atlético are in a better situation than other teams of Spanish Primera, like Real Madrid, Villarreal and Sevilla, which lost against 2ªB rivals.

Orihuela: Alberto, Kili, Benja, Iker, Andrés, Inarejos, Pereira, Juanjo Martínez, Santi Villa, Ibán Espadas, Esparza

Atlético Madrid: Leo Franco, Pernía, Pablo, Perea, Antonio López, Raúl García, Camacho, Luís García, Miguel de las Cuevas (`60 Banega), Forlán, Sinama-Pongolle
