Atletico de Madrid 2 – Mallorca 0: Agüero’s magic

November 2, 2008

Sergio Aguero offered a stunning performance on his return to the Atletico Madrid ranks on Saturday with both goals in a victory over Real Mallorca. The team missed him in the previous games but it seemed the right decision to leave him on the bench due to fitness concerns.

His scored the opener in the 12th minute when he coolly lobbed the ball over Mallorca goalkeeper Miguel Angel Moya after latching onto a headed pass from strike partner Diego Forlan. Later in the 28th minute, Antonio Lopez gave a quality pass to the inside of the area where Forlan’s hopelessly mis-cued effort found Aguero at the far post, giving the young Argentinian an easy tap-in.

Atletico deserved to be in front at half-time, but Mallorca reacted in the second time. First Aduriz could consider himself unlucky after his acrobatic effort smashed against the Atletico crossbar. Later on, Leo Franco did a brilliant one-handed to a Webo’s great opportunity just 5 yards from the goal line.
