Atlético’s last season pass was produced with a premiere. Antonio Gomis, goalkeeper of the second team, had to be under the sticks for the last ten minutes to substitute for a Grbic who was forced to leave injured in which it was being one of his best afternoons as an athlete. Just turned 20, the U-20 international couldn’t do anything to avoid Pascual’s goal that snatched second place from the rojiblancos in extremis in a match marked by controversy. But he had been sure and convincing to repel the side balls.
Gomis has exercised throughout the course as the third goalkeeper. Alternating appearances with Atleti B and appearances on the bench with the first team, Oblak’s injury due to a cervical problem that has left him out in the last eight days They have placed the man from Alicante as the first alternative for Grbic. But, if Gomis ends the season making his debut in an official match, he also left the curious image in the first preseason game. On July 27, Atlético kicked off the summer friendlies with the usual match at Burgo de Osma against Numancia. Simeone made eleven changes at halftime, replacing all his starters to manage the workload on his players’ legs during the first summer test.
And in the middle of the second half, Mario Hermoso suffered some physical problems that forced him to leave the field. After a few minutes with ten, there were two alternatives: give entry to a Nahuel Molina whose signing was not yet official or put Gomis as a field player. And the goalkeeper was chosen. With Felipe’s shirt and the ’18’ on his backSince the Brazilian had fallen off the list due to some discomfort in his knee, Gomis ended up acting as a striker and even looked for the goal with a long left footed shot. He emulated those minutes of Molina with the National Team when Clemente placed him on the extreme left field in a friendly.
In the Academy since 2019, in total he has played 15 League games in the Second RFEF in which he has conceded 15 goals. During his absence it has been Iturbe in charge of defending the goal of Tevenet. Gomis will now reinforce the second squad for the last game ahead, the one that will mark promotion to the First RFEF after the 1-1 in Murcia against UCAM. If they don’t lose in Majadahonda, Atleti B will complete their second consecutive promotion. Logic says that Iturbe will continue under the sticks, after having completed the three previous playoff games, but Gomis will be ready.
