The magic of Diego Bri knocks down an inferior Espanyol

Espanyol arrived at the match against Atlético de Madrid with fear in their bodies after an unfriendly draw. The rojiblancos, that they had been one step away from winning and that they were a steamroller in attackThey showed their talent at the Ciudad Deportiva de Sant Adrià and they have everything in store to move on to the second round of the playoff for promotion to the First RFEF next week. The 0-1 is gold for Luis García Tevenet’s men, who took advantage of their quality in attack against an inferior Espanyolwho competed but without excessive determination or ideas. A genius from Diego Bri after the hour of play was definitive.

Far from the cheerful football typical of subsidiaries, the first half passed more in the excessive respect between both teams. Few occasions, a lot of control, hard leg (Simo saw a yellow card in the 12th minute and could have been sent off later for a tackle on the limit) and a goalless draw at halftime. While Espanyol did not find clarity inside, they based their attacks on the depth of an inconclusive Nabil, just as fast with his pair as imprecise when it came to putting the centerand also in the talent of Villahermosa, who together with Simo and Roger Martínez were able to give meaning to the game.

A header from Gorjón licked the crossbar in the 10th minute, in the first local approach. Atlético found a highway on the left wing of Espanyolwith his movements to attract and break that Cala took advantage of so well, who in the 33rd minute left due to the speed of Lancho and Roger Martínez, who went to help, and his poisoned cross that Carlos Marín finished off was neutralized by Omar when the stands lamented the goal. The parakeet defenders went to hug Omar, a sign of the importance of his defensive action. Between protests and tension the first 45 minutes ended.

Hugs in the goal of Diego Bri, from Atlético B.

It rained heavily at the beginning of the second act and refreshed the ideas of both teams, who began to arrive at the area in a coming and going that was liked by the public but little by the coaches. Atlético began to give a more sense of danger because they were more unbalanced in attack, and finally in the 62nd minute it was 0-1 thanks to some genius from Diego Bri. The winger left due to Lancho’s speed, headed into the small area, gained a meter from Simo and shot at the short post with his left foot. A left-footed goal from the right, pure ten.

At 0-1, the rojiblancos withdrew into their field and defended their athletic DNA without fissures. Luis Blanco regenerated the entire attack and the parakeets hung balls, but found no finishers. They always crashed against a well-placed Atlético, who remains firm with the passing of the final minutes. The return will be next week. Espanyol needs a miracle and Atlético has to play it seen what was seen in Sant Adrià.
