  1. Atletico started really well, first 20-25 mins was all them, but since then it’s been all RM. I don’t see them hanging on to be honest.

    1. Atleti decided to sit back for some strange reason.As if they could ever protect a lead lol.

    1. Pathetico really do a good screw-up job.. They can really improve EE’s goal difference here..

      Do away goals count in the head to head in La Liga?

  2. I like how Atleti pretend to fight for a bit, then the inferiority complex sets in.

    1. In their quest to increase EE’s goal difference (not that it’ll matter after we beat them), me thinks this will end (at least) 5-2. Luis Perea and Tiago will make sure of that…

      Speaking of which, Tiago’s a teammate of TB in the Portuguese National Team, no? Hmm… 🙂

  3. Interesting its only 3 minutes additional time, for a game with a penalty and so many yellows and fouls and goals meanwhile ours got 5 😀

    1. As much as it annoys me when teams roll over for EE and other like shenanigans (refs awarding them BS penalties and denying the other team some), it makes them think they’re better than they actually are. It’s all that much better when they face actual teams (sorry Patheico, but really. I mean, REALLY. That third goal was just…pathetic) and get ‘found out’ a la Lyon, Bilbao, Alcorcon.

      Also, it makes us a stronger team. How many penalties have we gotten this season anyway?

  4. EEs confidence is running all time high. Another thrashing from Barca is exactly what they need. Seriously, when was the last time they faced a team that just doesn’t sit and defend? Barca will show them some football.
